Hi, I’m Kelly!
Life’s uncertain, eat dessert first.
I can’t speak for anyone else (if I could I’de be insanely rich) but I have had a wicked case of wanderlust ever since I can remember. For some reason, I was never satisfied staying in one place and always wanted to see what was just around the corner (way before my mom got sick)
This part of the reason why I moved to South Korea and taught English for a year (my parents were not happy and convinced I was gonna be the next star of Taken). But somewhere along the life happened, my mom died, and I lost sight of who I am and what I love. I fell into the trap of going to school and working a job I hated because that’s what I thought everyone expected of me. Day in and day out my life consisted of getting up, going to work, and mundanely going through the motions to pay my bills and try and make a living in an insanely expensive part of the United States.
Then one day, I had enough. I thought of my mom and how she never got to Rome and I didn’t want that to be, so I started to travel alone. I didn’t travel with anyone because my friends didn’t have enough money or didn’t have enough time off, or just didn’t enjoy the things that I myself love (museums, nature, theater, architecture, ghost tours, restaurants, coffee, art, cafes, animals, dogs, hiking, etc. So hint, hint, these are the things you will find in my blog).
So rather than sit around and wait for other people, I started to travel alone scared (I was super scared and anxious since I suffer from Depression and Anxiety), and it was the best decision I ever made. Not only have I met inspiring, amazing people all across the globe, but I have learned so much about myself in the process.
See, I am naturally a people pleaser, so when I travel with someone, I always tend to try and do what makes them happy. Yet, when I began to travel solo, I was forced, for the first time, to look at myself and figure out who I really am and what I really love. For the first time in my life, I could be totally selfish and do all the things that I love. So join me, and see where my travels take me!
