Guess what! I have completed two years of having quit my job and traveling around the world.
It seems like a dream that one day, two years back, I got the courage to leave my comfort zone to experience the world firsthand. Not the world that I was always told about but the one that exists for real – the world that is beyond the sites and stereotypes.
The world did not disappoint. The world as I witnessed it, sometimes made me breathless with its exoticness, the other times delighted and astonished me with its diversity, and then even in its remotest corners, it rang familiarity. As many Thai people love to say, I actually felt that the world is same same but different.
The best lesson that I have learned from traveling is that the world is full of kindness and amazing people. Whenever, wherever, I ran into any problem, there was always someone who came by to help. I left my house quite skeptical about the world and I came back with a whole new perspective of myself and the world that you and I share. This part of my life will be remembered as the “Journey Into the Goodness.”
This journey made me believe that the magic is for real. It also affirmed that we all have the ability to craft our lives to be what we truly want. And that the dreams can come true.
