You never know which decisions will change your life

ThrowBack time!! 6 year ago, exactly this date, is the day my life forever changed - I left home and went on my first #longdistance journey! It probably would have happened sooner or later, because 6 months earlier I did a bartendercourse and spent 7 weeks in Magaluf where I meet so many inspiring people which led me to take the decision to go backpacking (thank you Michell!!!). So, 6 years ago I started a big journey which took me to New Zealand, and from there to Australia where I would stay a few months before returning home. The journey would last in total 5 months, after that I would come home and do life like everyone else, work, studies, I didn't know what, but whatever society says we should do. That didn't happen. I changed my return ticket, I stayed away for almost 1 year before I went home for the holidays and then straight away left again and travelled until my money ran out. And that's the repeating story of my last 6 years, except that when I now return home it's not because I need money, it's just to drop by to say hello.
 
I'm homeless, I don't own things and I don't have a high degree education, BUT I own a hell lot of memories and I know more about the world and life than what anyone else than yourself and experiences can teach you. When I see myself on this old picture from NZ, in fact any old pictures, I see a insecure girl who don't know what she wants with her life. I still don't know, but I know I've done and choosed what's right for me, because following and living after what society tells us to do is simply not my thing, at least not for now. Travelling have given me soooo incredible much, an amazing view of life and great life philosophies, it made me to who I am and it keeps me growing. I for sure didn't know that nervous big day 6 years ago what an incredible gift and favor I gave myself going on to that flight to the other side of the earth.

Hej, jag har funderat länge på att också resa bort några månader. Jag bor i Jeppis o de känns som att man vet vad allt går ut på.. jag har hela livet drömt om Australien men jag vet inte om jag vågar resa själv (har rest mycket men max 2 veckor per gång). Har du något råd/tips att ge? :)

Svar: Just do it om du ens har en liten tanke, du kommer inte ångra det! :) Australien är världens lättaste land att resa i typ, It's made for backpackers, och vad är det värsta som kan hända? Du hatar det och saknar hem? Well then, inget värre än att bara åka hem igen då :) Don't worry, just do it!

Just do it säger jag också! FLyttade själv helt ensam utan att känna en enda människa till Helsingfors för att studera. Det var tufft och tungt. Men det var så värt det i slutändan. Åkte också på utbyte till Slovakien utan att veta nåt alls om landet förutom att det är billigt, eller ens kunna ett ord av språket. Inte ens "öl" kunde jag säga ;) nu har jag mitt drömjobb tack vare allt. Dock är jag smått uttråkad efter tre år i samma stad, så blir nog nån form av längre resa i nåt skede. Alla erfarenheter och alla människor och allt, det skulle jag aldrig byta bort. Att veta att jag klarar mig själv och att jag kan ha kul själv...
