Back to reality

When my world crumbled back in December, I never would have dreamed that the first few months of 2012 would be so amazing. Even though I started out on my own with no itinerary, the trip came together perfectly. I have to thank Agnes and Alex for introducing me to the beauty of South America. And, a second big thank you to Agnes for introducing me to Patricia, Barbara and Kim in Brazil. I would never have gone on my own since Brazil is not the safest place. However, being with them on our many crazy adventures was fabulous. Patricia and I were joined at the hip from the time we met. She was a breath of fresh air with her passion for life, her positive energy and free spirit.
Thanks to the girls and our hostel living, we made many new friends from around the world. With Faceboook, I know we will stay in touch and even see each other again!
I am also lucky because I came home to a new job. I interviewed just before leaving for South America and got the job offer the week after I got there. I am the head of digital marketing for a leading professional services organization. I still can’t believe they waited for me for two months so I could take my trip. I am truly blessed to have an amazing job to come home too.
While I am very excited about my job, travel will continue to be my passion. Who know where I will head to next, but I will blog again! A final thank you to my friend, Dj, for helping me set up my blog. Thanks to him, I have been able to capture so many amazing memories of my trip. I hope you enjoy sharing my adventures with me!

Positive Thinking

20120208-111843.jpgIt would be an understatement to say the end of 2011 was not quite what I expected. I lost my job and my dad in December and my whole world literally fell apart.
However, I am a firm believer in positive thinking and staying strong no matter what life throws at you. Everything happens for a reason and I had to believe that my life would evolve and change for the better.
I am an avid world traveler. I quickly saw the opportunity to finally be able to go on a trip with no set itinerary or time frame. There are many beautiful places around the world but South America stood out for several reasons. I had wonderful friends to meet there and I have always loved the Latin culture and language.
