It’s no secret that I LOVE to travel. I love meeting new people, seeing cool things, flying, seeing mountains and landscapes from above, and exploring. One of my biggest fears about buying the house was that I wouldn’t have time or money to travel. I weighed the pros and cons, cried about the decision, and talked to other travelers and friends for advice about this topic.
In May 2016 I bought my house and got to travel twice in December 2016. Both travel opportunities were kind of a fluke, but I took them!
When I traveled to Costa Rica in early December, all expenses were paid. I joined a high school group as their translator for about two weeks. Then, at the end of December, I flew to Cuba. I had a trip planned to San Francisco at the start of the year but that did not work out. As such, I had a travel voucher that I needed to use. My office closed over the Xmas holidays so it was the perfect chance to get away. When I travel, I budget and save money everywhere I can. I backpack, make my own food, carpool, couchsurf and avoid extra fees. I was so thrilled that I was able to travel the same year I bought the house. I really didn’t think it was within reach.
I am writing a blog post about the law of attraction because I often think about something and it happens. It’s a bit of luck and hard work together. Apparently, the law of attraction is a ‘real thing’. Whether you believe in it or not, I can’t argue that wonderful things often fall right into my lap.
