It's not always easy. really. but I'd choose it over and over again.
sometimes I beat myself up for not being more courageous. For feeling anxious at times. But today, I feel proud.
I've been here for a week now.
So far, I've changed airbnbs three times, got locked in an elevator, lost my phone in an uber, lost my bus ticket, walked many many miles each day, visited the city center, visited the opera house, went shopping, visited bondi beach, bronte beach, tamarama beach, dealt with a crazy stubborn jetlag and some major anxiety, pulled an all-nighter to finish my new YouTube video, was recognized by people in the streets who follow me, got to know a few people here, did a ton of filming for my next video, approached a guy at the opera house (who happens to be a vegan videographer - ummm?! thanks universe), watched a sunrise and many sunsets, experienced waves of euphoria, and tears of fear, lots of doubts and worries, and so many happy moments.
Solo-travelling is not always easy. You need to deal with every challenge on your own, or rely on strangers. but I would choose it over and over again - cause this kind of freedom is priceless.
I can go wherever I want, whenever I want, for as long as I want, with whomever I want.
I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, for as long as I want, and with whomever I want.
I can be whoever I want to be, each day.
That's why I travel alone.🕊 But that doesn't mean it's all rainbows and cotton candy clouds.
I've felt extremely overwhelmed over the last two days because I was standing in my own way. because I believed in a story I invented myself, in my own head.
there's always a way out.
the way out is through.
I ain't givin up so easily. 😉
I've already become so much more courageous, self-confident and self-reliant within these few days. I'm grateful for every experience.
I'll upload another YouTube video in the next few days - sharing more about my journey.
Sometimes it's crazy how talking to you guys seems the easiest to me. thank you for being here, and for listening to my story.
