Hello beauties! My name is Kira and I absolutely LOVE to travel. There is just something about the pure bliss, beauty and enjoyment of visiting exotic lands that I could not grow tiresome of.
Have You Come to the Right Place?
Before reading on and getting to know a little bit more about me, I want to make sure you have come to the right place.
Sometimes life can become a bit underwhelming. Repetitive, frustrating, and for lack of a better term, soul-sucking. If that’s you, and you have always dreamt of travelling, then I guarantee this blog will help prepare and guide you. Whether you are an experienced traveller, or someone who has never backpacked before, you have come to the right place.
Now this isn’t to say you should drop all of your responsibilities and run away to Hawaii. It’s about doing what is best for you, and taking care of your responsibilities along the way. I’ve met many kinds of different travellers. From a South African family who decided to sell their house, their belongings and take their two teenagers out of school for a future full of volunteering and world travel. To University graduates putting off getting a ‘real job’ (like me), and full time travellers who decided to get their yoga certifications or other likewise skills and decide to live on a Thai Island for a few years until their next adventure. The point is, it is possible. Whatever your circumstances.
Why Did I Do It
For me, deciding to travel was due to the excruciating thought of staying in my city and enduring -40 Winters every year for the rest of my life. I’m not sure how my home city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada has 700,000 people and continues to grow. Maybe if you lived near mountains and could practice your snowboarding tricks all winter it wouldn’t be so bad, but for me the closest mountains were a lengthy 14 hour drive away.
Why Shouldn’t You Do It
If by chance you do feel “soul-sucked” from life but you have never dreamt of travelling, or travelling doesn’t interest you. Then I think you might be in the wrong place. Try some yoga, join a book club, or really anything else to help get you out of your funk. But sadly, I don’t think I can help you.
To empower those souls who are stuck in their home-life and dream of a travel lifestyle but are not sure how to begin.
Why? Because I myself have fallen in love with exploring this world and the freedom that comes with it. I want nothing more than to help others achieve the same feeling.
I just graduated in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) Co-Op Degree, majoring in marketing. Instead of jumping into a full time job, I’ve decided to take a year off to travel around the world. I love my home during the summer but can’t imagine staying their year after year each winter. Travelling has opened up my eyes to the realm of possibilities available to help make this a reality.
Seriously, if I can do it, you can do it. It blows my mind that not everyone WANTS to travel, so if you are one of the people that does, don’t let your fears or worries stop you. We are in this together.
Follow my journey to South America, Europe, South East Asia, and where ever else the wind might take me. I’ll be sure to show you all the tips and tricks I learn along the way. Don’t hesitate to hit that contact tab up top if you’d like to chat. I will try and answer within a couple of days.
Besides school, working my way through school, and travelling, I am a total beach bum and love everything to do with the outdoors. Especially going hiking, biking, practicing yoga, learning new cultures, and cooking up delicious vegetarian recipes!
