I have dreamed of traveling the world since I was a little girl. In my family travel is kind of our hobby, almost like a race of who can get the most stamps in their passport. My family is scattered all around the world. Therefore experiencing the world, and doing it long term was a natural choice for me. People ask me aren’t you scared? Well of course I am, and that is why I know this is the right thing to do. This is one of my biggest dreams and it scares the shit out of me, but on the other side it gives me this incredible sense of happiness. I can’t pass this up. They say if your dream doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough. For those who know me, know that I’m kinda scared of everything, except taking chances and going upstream. All my fears are irrational and stupid. So for this journey I want to challenge myself, not just by being a solo female traveler most of the time, but also to live without fear. I am fearful for so many ridiculous things, like spiders, the dark, the grudge, and sharks coming in to the pool to kill me. Therefore I made a list of some of the fears I want to conquer this year:

  • Diving with sharks
  • Skydiving (I will probably shit myself or have a heart attack)
  • Hold a spider
  • Eating an insect
  • Let a cockroach crawl on my hand
  • Bungee jump
  • Sense deprivation (also known as floating)
  • Rollercoasters & heights

Will I go through with it all? I have no idea, but I hope so. So here’s to being brave and grab fear by the balls.
