Big travels on the horizon, but I need your help! Scroll down to find out why…
I woke up today and opened the curtains to see mini droplets of rain clinging onto the window for dear life. Just like me, they didn’t seem ready for today. I looked out at the London traffic whizzing past, churning up water and spraying passers-by with grey/brown dirt. I looked at my phone. Monday 4th September. It felt undeniably like the start of the autumn term. The back to school dreads were all around, despite those days being long gone.
Just weeks ago I wrote this post The Disillusioned Travel Blogger (if you didn’t read it, please do! It’ll show you there really are two sides to every job / story / weird life decision that you now call a ‘career’). I was chatting about the strange dichotomy of being too busy VS having nothing to do. In the freelance world, there’s a fear of quietness. Quiet times are scary – we like to be busy, we like to be creative, we like to know there’s work coming in and money to pay bills.
Yet, weeks later here I am feeling the opposite. I’ve got this overwhelming fear that I’ve taken on too much and I desperately want to do a good job, and not burn out in the process.
I could use this post to JUST reel off a list of killer destinations I’ve dreamed of visiting. But I’m keen to tell the full story, and not just the InstaGlam version of travel.
So here’s what I’ve got planned, and godammit I’m excited! I just hope a) I remember to breathe, b) I switch off from work occasionally to absorb the magic and beauty of each place and c) I create some kickass content for you guys to plan some awesome adventures too!
Wanderlust Chloe – Autumn Travels
This Saturday I shall be boarding my second MedSailors Yacht! A few summers ago I spent a week sailing around Croatia with MedSailors and absolutely loved it. It’s a travel company that really knows what it’s doing. The vibe is fun and they match you up with boat mates of similar age and with similar interests. Plus travelling by boat allows you to see things you’d never see on foot.
