Another year has passed, and this blog is getting quieter and quieter. I haven’t been writing a lot, you might think. But behind the scenes, speaking of IN MY LIFE, I was writing a lot of stories. I lived, in a way that I never thought I would live. And I am gonna tell you a secret.
Most of the time we are more ourselves than somewhere else while we are traveling. We are the true “me, myself and I” selfish travelers who (basically) don’t give a f** about anyone else. It appears to me, that living in one place, where there is a lot of consumption going on, influences me more than I even noticed. You turn into a multiple you. Changing your outfit, your personality, maybe even your attitude even within a day. When you leave work and meet up with friends. When you are with your family or just at home with your love. That is not possible while you’re traveling. You are just You. That´s what I love. Being me.
So here it is. Finally. The truth about why I quit the job that I loved. How my first real solo travel adventure changed my life and why it took me a little bit longer to publish this entry.
I have a good life. Of that I am sure. And times like this, like when I was back home in Vienna for a week, or now that Christmas is almost over, once again showed me how good it is. And I am happy about that. I appreciate it. I embrace it and try to make it even better by being a good person.
There hasn´t been a proper update here in on my blog over half a year. No writing. No pictures. Just some Instagram posts that gave you a vague idea of what I was doing. So I think it is time. And although I already wrote a blog post about being offline, which was approximately one year ago, I think I owe you another one. This is gonna be honest, personal and not as long as you might expect.
Just recently I was nominated for the “Liebster Award” which is a blog post roll out for up-and-coming blogs. Thank you Zoe from prettynormalgirl for nominating me. (For all of you who speak German please drop by at her blog! I translated the questions in English, as most of my blog is not written in German.) I will give you honest answers to some personal life questions, my feelings and thoughts.
Those people inspire me. Their thoughts match mine. The videos give me strength. Their wanderlust shows me the beauty I haven´t seen yet, but also places I recognize and look back to with a smile. This is why I choose this post for the beginning of 2016. To inspire you.
