It’s a pretty bold title isn’t it? Happily I can say that it’s all true. Today was my last day of work. After 6 years with the same soul-destroying company, I have finally quit my job to begin a life of indefinite travel.
I feel like that’s all I want to say right now and yet there is so much more that needs to be said.
Like the fact that I’ve had my visa and ticket booked since December and the reason I could only hint at my intended destination (as opposed to telling you all about my plans) was because work were looking for any excuse to get rid of me (after spending all of last year trying to fire me for standing up for myself) so I needed to stay as quiet as possible. But now I can say what I have wanted to since I booked my journey all those many months ago…
…I start my journey on October 1st when I fly to Sydney on a one-way ticket!!! After that, I don’t know what happens. I have a working holiday visa so the very loose plan is to work and travel around Australia for a couple of years followed by a couple of years in New Zealand and then, who knows? There are more than a few places around that part of the world that are on my bucket list such as Micronesia, Fiji, Borneo; the list goes on.
I don’t know what’s going to happen over the next few years because I can’t predict the future but you’re more than welcome to, via my little slice of internet, come along for the ride…I think it’s going to be a pretty special one 🙂
