A 2o something year old Canadian female who just wants to see the world. In 2013 I didn’t have enough money to go on an around the world trip, so instead I bought a 1 way ticket to London, and moved to Edinburgh.
Moving to a new country seemed to be the best way to travel while still working and saving money for a larger trip.
If you want to know more about why I decided to move to the UK check out this post: Why We Chose to Move to the UK.
And why did I choose Edinburgh?
Simple, Castles and the Scottish accent.
What’s in a Name?
Have you seen the movie Into the Wild? Or read the book? They’re based on the life of Christopher McCandless, a young man who left his life behind to follow his dreams of living in the wilds of Alaska, bereft of all but the most essential of belongings. I chose the name of this blog based on a quote from the book that I found especially inspiring.
The full quote can be found below, but the part that our name comes from reads: “The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
What’s on the Horizon
Hell if I know, but that’s the point of traveling right? But I do have some possible ideas in mind. Like picking fruit on English farms, or joining a carnival (seriously, anyone know of any openings for a couple of ferris wheel operators?). I’ll be based in the UK for the next two years or so, but I will be trying to do weekend trips into Europe whenever possible. After that we I’ll be looking to move to somewhere with a healthy supply of the good ‘ol vitamin D, possibly Australia, or maybe spend some time saving the turtles in Costa Rica.
I plan on traveling the world slowly for as long as I can.
