Last year on 13th April we headed to the San Francisco airport to catch our flight to Bangkok at 1 am. For Grant, it was the first time to leave the USA, since then we traveled to 17 countries together.
I collected some questions that you were interested in, based on the messages I received.
It seems like a miracle when you actually live this life?
Absolutely! For me, this is not natural, or easy. Every single time we go to a new place, new country and when we are there, every day it comes to my mind, how lucky I am to experience all these beauties.
Australia, a country far away with cool people who likes to surf, listening to good music, and write them…. kangaroos jumping through the road, and some animal called wombat is living there too. Opera house and some other interesting buildings in the city called Sydney, which is not the capital. Yes, so, that’s how I’ve seen Australia from Hungary.
It’s always different when you see something in real life. After Japan, it felt like some kind of cultural shock, especially Cairns, where our flight landed from Tokyo. They were questioning us, and examined our luggages, as they were suspicious about that the time we applied for the visa was just days before our flight, plus this extensive traveling didn’t seem right for them. So it does for us. By the way, on 13th April, we going to celebrate a 1 year travel anniversary, more or less with constant traveling together. Everything started at the San Francisco airport where we were waiting for our flight to Bangkok, first trip abroad together.
10When you start to talk about Japan, you’re afraid that you can’t finish it, it’s just too much to talk about it. We are here for 3 weeks now, and already on the first three days we experienced so much, that it’s hard to tell all of them.
I got what I asked for: culture shock, and some winter time (the last one is not my favorite, but anyway, soon we’ll travel to the summer, it’s all about harmony).
Tokyo is inspiring, every area has its own special vibe. Here you can’t find an actual city center, wherever you are, you can feel like you’re in the middle of something.
There are a lot of things I’ve never heard of, I was scared to try, or just the person was missing who could introduce it for me. Here are the 10 things I needed to travel to like them, try them.
If someone said one year ago, that I’m gonna be a sushi lover…I would’ve started to laugh badly. Even to think about the raw fish made me feel bad. I never got it, why a lot of people like it, for me raw fish, meat were equal to danger. Nice stereotype, I guess.
Then an American guy came and felt like he has a mission to introduce sushi to me and how to eat with a chopstick because no one ever succeeded before. I think he was lucky, now we are about to planning our trip to Japan and eat sushi every damn day.
You could already read some tips for preparing to travel somewhere. I also wrote some suggestions to make your trip more safe, and about packing.
Maybe You felt it wasn’t enough, and I totally agree with You! Even that you have maybe the flight ticket, it’s hard to go! Years ago it was tough for me too, but I made a decision I would never regret. You’re not alone with it, look what I just collected here!
Do you have sometimes the feeling that You’re not satisfied with yourself?
You had plans, but they are not going well? You have a hobby but you barely do it? You’re time is running away, you were just snipping your morning coffee, and then you notice, it’s 11 pm, and you didn’t do anything?
In the last months, I felt the same. What the hell is happening with me? I was never the lazy one, I loved to do things, and besides that I was practicing yoga, I was reading books, listening to music all the time, etc. In the beginning I said, it’s because we are traveling a lot, I don’t have time for it, I’m too tired, because we walked a lot that day, and for sure I can not roll my mat out. I had a lot of excuses, and I was believing in them. If you are lucky you have someone to facing you the truth, that You’re lying to yourself. What a woman reacts on this? Of course I cried, because I realized, he’s totally right, and something is not okay with me. It didn’t hurt that he told me, it was more about the fact, that I was disappointed in Me. Because I don’t live the life I wanted.
