Travel is rebellion in its purest form. We follow our heart, we free ourselves of labels, we lose control willingly, we trade a role for reality, we love the unfamiliar, we trust strangers, we own only what we can carry, we search for better questions, not answers, we truly graduate, we, sometimes, choose never to come back.
I have a soul of a nomad. I was born this way and no family, culture or social influence can ever change that. Today I become 27, and stronger than ever, I feel that the genes of the lifelong traveler will always lead me. Well, I’m not such a big fan of words always and never but let’s make a tiny exception this time.
I don’t know when I realized that traveling, in a deep and complex sense of this word, will always be a big part of my life, or maybe eventually become my life. Last few years were a big adventure, I was living in Israel and I have to admit that this country taught my so many valuable lessons and gave me so many beautiful moments that no place ever did. When the moment of leaving arrived, my heart got thorn apart (just so you know, my heart is not getting broken so easily).
Although I was planning my new trip and adventure for months already, I got the visa to work and live in New Zealand (yeah baby, it’s going to happen!) I couldn’t understand why I’m being thrown away from my home. And then, one day, I understood. It’s all because The World Is Calling Me! As simply as that. I got too comfy in my cosy apartment, surrounded by amazing friends in a city that I truly adore. My craving for moving again wasn’t so strong for the last year because I got very comfortable in my little world. Withough doubts, it was the best year of my life. I almost forgot that there is still so much to see. Well, thanks God the universe reminded me of that by kicking my ass and putting me in uncomfortable place again. And that was exactly what I needed to remember how much I miss discovering new places and how excited I’m for the upcoming trip. Another solo trip.
The World Is Calling Me is my new project that I want to run from now on. It’s a birthday gift for myself, I’m spoiling myslef, I know. If you happen to be here today, please wish me a lot of health and crazy, but safe travels.
See you later, alligator!
