12 Things to Remember Before Your Next Adventure: Advice from LadyTravel Bloggers23 April 2015
One night, we were cooking dinner at her apartment, swapping stories, and joking about how I would probably wind up moving back to our tiny hometown in Wisconsin and never get out. “Maybe you should just quit your job and we can go off to Europe and never come back,” I said to her, jokingly. Except I was totally serious.
Eight weeks later, we boarded a one-way flight to Dublin to embark on a seven-week adventure. We just went for it. We were both buried in debt with no safety net to fall back on. Maybe it wasn’t the most responsible decision -- the economy had just crashed, and not even our brightest friends graduating at the tops of our classes could land a gig anywhere. But it was the best decision we’ve ever made.
And if we could go back, we would tell ourselves the same thing over and over again. Just go for it. If your heart is in it, just make it happen.
So we asked some of our favorite female travel bloggers and friends, “If you could go back, what would you tell yourself before heading off on your first adventure?”
These are their stories.
Be prepared for it to completely and totally transform you.
Let down whatever barriers you think might be holding you back.
Be present. Try to stay in the moment.
So show up for the adventure.
What would you tell other travelers before they hit the road on an epic adventure?
