Where this all started…

Welcome!! I have thought about starting a blog for a long time and decided why not now? 

My story is pretty unique with being a cancer survivor and I believe that even if you can’t directly relate to my experience I am sure there are those of you who can relate to me in your own way. So I am putting myself out there because I know there are other’s out there who feel the same. I hope to encourage and inspire others to embrace their own lives while letting you all in on how I got to where I am today.

When it came time to start writing I thought “where do I start?” I am going to Asia in September but what should I do until then.

Well I decided to start where my love of travel began: The Bahamas.

Have you ever dreamt about something and than when it actually happens it’s disappointing because you built it up so much in your head? Well Bahamas was the complete opposite of this for me. It not only lived up but exceeded every expectation that I had.

And what captured my heart the most? The ocean.

There is a quote by George R.R Martin that explains what I feel when the smell and sound of the ocean hits me

“She loved the sea. She liked the sharp salty smell of the air, and the vastness of the horizons bounded only by a vault of azure sky above. It made her feel small, but free as well.”

So welcome to my blog and I hope you will continue on this journey with me as I share all I can, my past, experiences (the good and bad), planning,  hopes, dreams and of course any tips and tricks I can with you all. This is my path and my Destination: Living 🙂
