Eyes wide open.
Eyes wide open.
I have to remember that comfort zones are there to be stood outside of. Becoming braver has enabled me to see the world. I still panic, I still have anxiety and at least one meltdown per trip BUT without that I wouldn’t feel the highs.
It’s important to remember that travel can make you complacent. It can make you view the world in a skewed way, just catching a glimpse of a place or a few weeks in a country. Stereotypes can build. It isn’t just for those who stay at home.
It’s been a bit quiet round here again recently hasn’t it!? I guess the lack of motivation hit me for longer than I hoped. The winter is always difficult for me, I find the lack of sunlight, ability to go outside and general warmth hard to deal with. It affects my mood and makes me particularly prone to being a bit apathetic.
I’ve invested in a daylight lamp, I’ve also recently just got back from Cuba so I’m feeling a bit more on a level playing field. Hopefully that will kick the writing back into shape which I’m looking forward too!!
I’m also picking my twitter feed back up so go and have a follow if you’re around! @nonbackpacker, or follow me on Instagram @amyisabella12!
It’s funny isn’t it when you say to yourself that you’ll get back on top of blogging, you enjoy writing, you enjoy reliving your trips and you fear you will start forgetting those moments and then you don’t get back on top of it.
I’m not sure why, perhaps it’s the miserable weather.
Here’s hoping I get the flow back soon!
No matter who you are or how far you go, you’ll always be in someone’s heart. The world can seem vast and expansive but at the end of the day we are all the same. We all want to be loved and cared for. Your family may be far away or you may feel far from your friends but there is always someone who cares.
I travel because I don’t want to be scared of the world, of the unknown. I want understand that someone from the UK, Uzbekistan and Canada can all relate and interact with each other. We might not speak the same language or have the same beliefs but human interaction is a diverse and wonderful thing.
It might seem soppy or make me seem like a bit of a dreamer but what’s life without a bit of dreaming!?? *reopens closed tabs about Antarctic cruises*
It’s been a bit quiet round here recently, I’ve been feeling a bit apathetic towards writing down what we’ve been up to and what we’re planning to do going forward which is a bit of a shame. I don’t really know why, it’s been a busy time so I guess it’s just been my brain being a bit preoccupied.
I love to write down what we have experienced as a way to remember, a way to digest the trip and a way to share. Basically I just need to get back behind the key board and get on with it!!
So, I still have some content to catch up on, the French Alps, Tanzania and I’m going to attempt my first proper hotel review at the end of this month. I have also started looking forward to what we will be doing next year…did I hear you say Cuba!?
Stick with me I will have some more for you soon!!
Getting ready for a two trips this weekend. First is a trip to Stuttgart and the second biggest beer festival in the world for my birthday next weekend and then a trip we have been waiting for all year in 19 days!!!
For now here is my thought of the day.
We had a lovely time in Geneva, Switzerland and Morzine, France with my sister-in-law last weekend. It already feels like it was yonks ago but we have a couple of exciting trips coming up in the next 2 months! eek!!!
On the 5 year anniversary of me being at my current job I think this is very apt!
It’s a balance to get the most out of life whilst holding down a job, sometimes we get this balance just right and other times we don’t. But I guess that’s part of life!!!
