And so it begins…

I want to travel the world My blog! Ok and the next step in my life (which really gave birth to this blog). I recently decided to quit my job, sell my baby (aka my new red convertible, every girl needs one at some point in their life right?), and leave my cushy life living with my family, close to all of my friends to move to pretty much as far away as you can get… Berlin, Germany!

I started working full-time my final semester of university and soon realised I was so not ready to be an official member of the workforce for the rest of my life. That’s when I met my boyfriend Daniel who had been on the same path headed for full-time work when he decided he wanted to spend his life traveling and pursuing his other dreams, number one being professional water polo. I met Daniel while he was playing water polo overseas in Sydney (he’s from California). It didn’t take long for us to discover how similar our dreams were (no not water polo, I’ve tried it, pretty much drowned) but traveling, living all over the world and just making the most out of life as we possibly can. We want to be those annoying old people who are constantly saying “that reminds me of when I was living in [insert obscure country] and I [insert even more obscure event]“. So when Daniel said he was moving Berlin to continue water polo the decision for me was difficult, scary, huge easy.

So here we are about to start the next stage. I just told my family and friends the news last week that I’m headed out in August, which also meant I gave notice at my job (oh yeah I work for my parents, talk about making the decision to leave doubly hard on them and me!). Bring on Berlin!
