I was working full time at a production studio, working long hours, with a long commute and only 10 vacation days a year. Over time, I managed to squeeze in short trips to Italy, Cuba, and Mexico, but I wanted to go further, and explore more. Every trip felt rushed and I always came back to work exhausted. My creativity was dwindling and I began to hate my career.
I discovered travel blogs, and the stories of other people who had left their ‘cubical lives’ in search of adventure. Their words and stories inspired me, and I just couldn’t stop dreaming about exploring jungles, deserts and ancient wonders scattered around the globe. I needed to see the surreal landscapes and incredible monuments I had read about and seen pictures of. I was inspired to create my bucket list.
