I always dream of quitting my job, buying a camper and spending my life driving around Canada. A life of reading, checking out festivals and events, and hiking is my ideal. Throw a horse in there somewhere (not practical) and it’s my nirvana.
I stumbled upon this great blog I Love Born To Be Wild today and the latest entry was the writer talking about how she and her boyfriend quit their jobs and started travelling. I really enjoyed it and thought you might too.
Earlier this summer my honey + i decided to sell everything, leave our Maui home and hit the open road for some much needed road-trippin, van-campin + festival-hopin. With our hearts on our sleeves, our home on our back and a handfull of crystals, sea-shells + good books, we have found ourselves experiencing a different kind of freedom.
This freedom is not about working the same 9-5 job for 5 years so that you can get your 2 weeks paid vacation and it’s not about buying a nice car so you can enjoy your drive to work every day…
Instead, this freedom is about detaching from the material world, letting go of possessions and realizing the impermanence of all things. This freedom is about finding your inner superpower – it’s about being spontaneous, trusting your intuition and following your heart.
However, in the process of letting go of everything else, we have become pretty attached to our hippie-flippin, road-trippin, festival-hopin, time-travelin motor-coach… this one might take us some time ♥
