Hey, I',m Melissa
I quickly realized that wasn't the life I wanted. I loved college and found tons of joy in learning BUT I choose a degree for passion...yep I have a Business Finance degree with a minor in accounting. Although that gave me an oppurtnity to have a lucrative 9-5 I was empty on the inside. I filled my life with things istead of experiences.
queue a tragic divorce which led to a one way ticket to bali...
Did I mention I am a HUGE reader?? Well being basic I found myself booking a one way ticket to Bali just like in Eat Love Pray. A cliche is a cliche because for the most part they are true and to say I found myself there is an understatement.
30+ countries later i have learned so much...
I left my 9-5 with zero idea of what I would do and for a Virgo thats like the worst thing you could possibly do. My whole life there has been a clear plan... get straight A's, go to college, get a job, retire then you have fun. I threw the rule book out the minute I stopped following the plan. I will admit I thought I could "make" it by posting some cool photos on instagram and oh honey let me tell you how WRONG that idea was. Lets just say that I would never trade my experiences because they were valuable lessons. Now that I am back to my 9-5 I have a clearer plan on how to leave to travel again and I am here to inspire you to do the same. Whether its to take your first trip solo, to leave to travel the world or just a holiday, I have you covered!
moving to bali was the best and worst decision I have ever made!
