After spending the last 7 years of my life working in unfulfilling 9 – to – 5 office jobs, I decided that it was time for a change. I was tired of spending most of my time doing tasks that had no meaning for me while I daydreamed of a more exciting life. Like most of my friends and colleagues, I dreaded the feeling of apprehension that grew inside me every Sunday evening when the start of another week was looming ahead.
On December 2010, I finally took the leap and escaped the rat race. I left my job, gave up my flat in beautiful Barcelona, took my 2 lovely cats to Berlin to stay with my ex-boyfriend, said goodbye to my good friends and embarked on this nomadic journey. My goal is to travel for at least 18 months to explore different alternatives that will help me find a new occupation. Along the way, I plan to volunteer with Helpx and WWOOF, discover new music, take beautiful photos and learn about local cuisines among other things.
