This is the beginning of a long road for me. Its the start of something so big it seems to be consuming my mind and making its way into my very soul, and like the roots of a tree, its burrowing into me slowly.
Wanderlust. The extreme passion and desire to wander. Love of travel. Its always been a part of me, but I had never acted on it so seriously until the last few weeks.
To keep a long story from dragging on and on like a pet rock, I will keep this first post brief. I plan to spend the rest of my life traveling the world, seeing what it has to offer, making a difference where I can, and writing the details of my experiences.
Most people would say its a good thought but not practical.
I say that it has always been my dream and I am making it happen even as I write this first post.
The first thing that comes to mind is probably the money problem. How can I do this with no money?
I say that life isnt about money. Its about the decisions you make. And money is not a problem unless you make it a problem. However, it is a factor as you cannot fly in a plane for free. I am currently working on funding to get me started, and after that I plan on using this blog as my main source of income. It will be much work, and not a simple task at all, but when is passion ever work really? After building a large readership, and publicizing this site, I will be able to travel using only the profit from that for expenses.
In 2012 I traveled western Canada for over a month and started with only $230 and a bus ticket. If interested, my blog then was http://www.devincheskethtraveler.blogspot.com. But even then with a bit of help from family and friends, as well as a lot of hard work, I made my way from city to city and back home again.
It was the best experience of my life.
So why not just take off? It is my life and that is the most fullfilling thing i could ever do, so I plan on doing it.
What I need right now is for this blog to go viral and get a good readership going. So, pass the word along and help me reach my goals! There is much more to come, but for now, follow my social media which can be found in the upper right hand corner of this blog!
