  1. Just wanted to say thank you for this blog! I came across via a long line of clicking links, and I feel like I have a lot in common with you! I'm living in Wisco right now, and have big ideas of traveling the world... Your posts make me realize it might actually be possible!
    Also, I have traveled to Poland and Iceland, and I highly recommend taking as much time in Poland as possible! Beautiful country, and the people are some of the most generous souls I have met. Iceland was beautiful as well, but in a more unearthly sense. I will be following your blog, thank you again!

    1. It IS possible, I promise you. Wisco? As in Wisconsin? If that's the case.. we have WAY more in common than you know. I went to school in La Crosse :). Thank you so incredibly much for you reading and for your tips on travel. Any specific recommendations on where to go in Poland? I really appreciate you taking the time to comment as well. Really means a lot to me. And truly. Find a way to keep traveling. You know just as well as I do, how much it changes your life. Keep it up :)!

  3. I can't see Austria on your list :P
    I really can recommend you discovering Tyrol and it's beauty (because all the "normal" tourists are only visiting Vienna and Salzburg - that's too lame).

  4. I have very much enjoyed reading your blog, it has given me hope at a time where everything is has been putting me down. At the moment I am stuck in a country I really can no longer stand, at a job i don't like and worst of all, in a mental state that i wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. But just recently i tried to change, and i am starting with my attitude about things. It has been hard, but stories like yours make it seem possible.
    I am Egyptian and am glad Egypt is on your list! Am also glad its on the long-term list since by then one can hope that things would have calmed down.

    1. Thank you very much for reading! Keep your chin up and you will soon have the revelation you need. I was in a very unhappy situation before I found my opportunity for change. Just keep moving forward and try to keep a positive attitude. And yes, I can't wait to make it to Egypt one day :) Best of luck to you!!

    1. Nope. Not opposed to India. Was thinking of adding it during my southeast Asia trip, but didn't think I'd have enough money. We will see though :)! Any suggestions on where to go?
