A few years ago i finally finished 5 years of Uni, at the end of it i thought i would feel a sense of direction, i thought my future would be clear! It wasn’t…. i was so confused as to what avenue of my degree to take, should i work in Australia or overseas, should i have a break first or jump straight in arghhh so many decisions. I was living in WA so i thought first step would be to go back to QLD and reconnect with my family for a bit. I shipped everything over, all that was left was me and my car….. do i ship my car and fly? or … do…..i…..drive?…..: /. Everyone was telling me it was far to dangerous to do the trip alone. But whats life without a bit of risk!! This decision changed my life. I embarked on a real soul searching journey! I took my time, 2 weeks, in my little efficient peugeot diesel. I went Perth- Albany – Esperence (omg cape le grand national park is the most amazing place i have seen)- Eucla (bit scary)- Ceduna – Port Augusta – Adelaide- Mildura- Dubbo – Gold Coast. 5,210km and i would do it all again in a heartbeat!! I have never had so much time alone to think and reflect and enjoy my surroundings!! It was seriously the journey of a lifetime, i have travelled to many overseas countries and this trip across Australia remains my favourite! Once i landed in QLD i then met my husband 2 weeks later, we were engaged within 2 months, pregnant within 4 months now we are married with baby number 2 on the way! I feel like a whole new person, the trip made me feel refreshed and open to life, love and opportunity.
So moral of my story is take a risk!
Don’t be afraid to do things alone!
Sometimes the longer & harder way has the better outcome!
