How did I get here?
I don’t mean “how did I end up in a coffee shop writing a blog post?” I know I took the bus to get here.
No, rather, the question at hand goes something like this.
How did I – a small town prairie boy from Canada – end up being a regular in a coffee shop in Tokyo writing yet another travel blog post?
My journey started exactly six months ago – and over that time, I know many people have had questions about the path I’ve taken. I chose to not share much over that time because so many pieces of this puzzle (my trip) hinged on me living up to contractual obligations which have now come to a conclusion.
Today, however, I feel not only able, but ready to share a bit more of my story. It’s strange for me to talk about myself this way. But I share all of this as a way to join the conversation with those who (even for a minute) have considered long-term travel as a goal.
What’s stopping you? How do you get to your freedom? What is your exit strategy?
