What am I doing???

I have tried to write this post so many times but the words seem to escape the keyboard before I can type it down. Not a lot has been happening on the blog front hence why I thought I would post a little something tonight.

For the first time in a while I am completely feeling nothing towards my website/blog and there have been moments where I have thought “should I just delete it?”. One of the reasons for this is because at the moment I have no travel plans organised and I’m finally looking at moving out from my parent’s house which means not being able to save to go on holidays as much as I would like.

My plan was to visit Canada in Sept/Oct of this year but I have since changed my mind as it was going to work out to be too expensive. Last year’s North America Holiday where I travelled for 5 weeks turned out to be an expensive one so this year I was looking forward to a much cheaper holiday.

I also had plans to visit Vietnam with a friend but cancelled that also for 2 reasons but I’m only going to be telling you one. Since talking to a friend last year he really put it in perspective for me that I really should be saving for my future. If I were to go to Vietnam (which would have been in March) I wouldn’t of had enough money to come back home too and it would have been unpaid leave – which I can’t afford to do. Having 3 weeks unpaid last year was a little bit of a struggle but I managed. Since having that conversation I am now thinking about what I should be putting my money towards.

Another reason why I haven’t been feeling connected to my blog is at the moment the only thing I pay for is my domain. My plan is free, I don’t have a host to help me out and I’m not even sure I know what I’m doing – I only know the basics of this stuff. I work full time also but feel that I don’t earn enough to pay for a better plan on WordPress for my blog because I instantly have that thought “what happens if you fail? what a waste of money” come into my head. It’s ridiculous and I know you gotta start somewhere, but to me, I work hard for my money and I would hate to see something fail if I put my hard earned cash towards it.

Recently I have been trying to decide where to venture to this year. Trust me, it’s harder than it looks. I’m all up for an inexpensive holiday and I feel I am ready to experience something different – like Asia. I had never wanted to go to Asia but now I really want too. I guess after travelling to countries who have western culture you want something a little different. I had always told myself when I was younger that I had wanted to visit English speaking countries first be it America, Canada, New Zealand or Great Britain. I have since changed my mind and even though I had a terrible day in Montreal (French speaking) I realised that majority of Earth’s population has a different language so there is no escaping that if you want to see the World.

I have also thought about travelling parts of my own country, Australia. There are some incredible places I am yet to see and would love to tick off my bucket list. Travelling within your own country there isn’t much to worry about for example – power adapters, needles, currency and all the rest that goes with it. High up on my Australian Travel list is Tasmania where I would love to do a 2 week self drive tour. The photos I have seen are incredible. I would love to drive the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Head back up to Cairns (or even do a road trip up there), experience the white beaches of the Whitsundays, and explore Adelaide.

So in all honesty I have no idea what I’m doing this year but I know I want to make it one of the best years yet! I hope I get to leave my footprints somewhere I’ve never been before.
