The world is just awesome
The world is just awesome!
We were tired, unenthusiastic and basically worn out from the high stress sales positions we both held. Being treated badly by companies where the catchcry is 'It's just business, nothing personal'. Our faith in the system had run dry. We couldn't feel anything anymore, totally drained of emotion. But in the last year we have earned the right to say that we are living, feeling human beings again. And to travel and witness purity and innocence has been most rewarding. Even if these events happened at home we would not have reacted the same. From witnessing baby turtles scramble to the sea against all odds; to meeting and playing games with children in all the countries so far; to making an elderly woman or man grin with a hello in their own language (you know the kind of smile that makes them lose their eyes and expose their gums).
We are now two totally revitalised people who are living and working in a country on the rise. We highly recommend this kind of shot in the arm to revive the soul. Anyone can do it. It just takes a little guts, flexibility and willingness to let go of the fears we sometimes hold on to.
