‘The secret to starting with a clean slate is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.’
During our first year of travelling we got involved in a Network Marketing company where we started to earn a little bit of money through a business model online. This was an extremely exciting phase for us because for the first time in our lives we found a way that we could work from our laptops from anywhere in the world. All we had to do was inspire others who wanted this lifestyle to join our team. This led us to believe that to grow our business, we had to give off the perception that we lived a perfect life. How wrong were we.
When we started our travel journey we posted ‘everything’ on social media, but we never even came close to sharing the struggles we had to keep ourselves on the road. We probably spent more time worrying about how we were going to afford our next meal or where to sleep that night than actually exploring the exotic places that were in all of our photos.
We shared the glory but not the REAL story…
Over time this non-authentic image we were portraying took its toll on us and we felt burnt out. We stopped posting to our Facebook page because we completely forgot why we even started it. Since making the decision to stay in one place for the past 6 months and move on from network marketing, we’ve had time to immerse ourselves in personal development and reflect on what we truly want moving forward.
We want to keep travelling for experiences and adventure. We want to grow as humans and connect with other travellers. From now on, we want to be real and authentic. We’ve started this blog to share the highs and the lows. The old and present stories. Travel tips from our own experiences.
We aim to inform, relate, inspire, and empower you to live your dreams and passions, no matter what obstacles life throws at you. We want to demonstrate that travelling the world is possible for you too, if you want it bad enough.
