“If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.”
This is a quote that I found on my wall in my mother’s handwriting the week after I graduated from college. With the full intentions of not getting a “real” job and just seeing the world for a bit, this quote is something I hold dear to my heart. So often I find the people of my generation worried about doing the “right” thing. Getting a job, buying a house, and getting a dog. The American dream some might call it. They focus so hard on achieving all of these things before they can see the world instead of taking a little leap of faith. That is NOT my style. I am all about taking the risk and going for the adventure. As a 22 year old I have the rest of my life to settle down and do what society tells me is proper. (We’ll see if that happens) For now I am happy bopping around the world, working odd jobs, and meeting as many people as possible.
After letting my parents in on my big secret of life, I bought a one way ticket to Hawaii which will be my first big stop. I’ll be there for at least four months on a succulent farm learning what it takes to grow a successful nursery. While there I’ll find the best waves, tacos, drinks, and people to surround myself with. Who knows how long I’ll be there and how long I’ll stay, I just can’t wait to hit the road!
Until next time,
