For the past few years, I have been travelling by bus to get to anywhere outside my home. At some point, you end up being sick of the same bus routes. When you catch a bus almost every day, nothing seems to change. Everything goes past in a blur, and you end up seeing the same familiar, glum faces of early morning travellers. It’s in these moments especially when I feel the most restless. I feel the need to keep moving, to see somewhere new, to experience something I never imagined myself doing. Travelling is my escape from the same, mind-numbing routine of everyday life. Although the only times I catch a bus nowadays is to go to work, so I guess I’m stuck with the same views for a while longer... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this is one of the many reasons why I want to travel. That's the end goal. Unfortunately, it doesn't come to life with the snap of your fingers. There's a lot of trial and error, as well as a mountain of hard work. So from here on in, I'm writing about the process of this journey. Find out what I'm doing NOW to travel more LATER in my latest blog post.
Let's both be real for a minute. Who are you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can feel you squint at that small question, almost accusingly. As you should be, really. Let me put you at ease and tell you who I am first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am a twenty-year-old uni drop-out, part-time worker and aspiring travel writer. I live with my parents and need to start driving lessons. I’ve moved house more times than I can count, and spend a stupid amount of money on transport between Exeter and Birmingham. Concert tickets are immediate purchases, and the occasional new outfit is pretty refreshing. I’m a sucker for biscuits and sloth plushies, and there honestly isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t question why I’m so damn tired. Amongst other things, in six months time, I plan to travel consistently for four months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As you can see, that last sentence went from 0 to 100 pretty quick. Travel consistently for four months? Four months, at where I am now? With WHO I am now? Impossible! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or is it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is me, right now. I WILL make it. I WILL do it. And I'm going to prove it to you, and write down the process of this ridiculous sounding journey on my blog. But now that I've told you about me, and my goals... who are you? What are you going to do? Are you in the same boat? Do you want to travel but don't think you can make it happen? If you are, then head over to my latest blog post to find out how I'm going to make all of this work. Trust me, it'll be worth your time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How big is your gap between real and ideal? Is who you are today, who you want to be tomorrow? Or, do you have opportunities for improvement and growth?
I definitely have work to do yet. I venture to guess we all do in some area of our lives. But I’m committed to closing my gap through intentional actions everyday. And, as the post says, it’s not so much about finally reaching your ideal; rather, it’s about the journey along the way. .
