It’s a brand new year and usually at this time of year - I have a love-hate relationship! I love dreaming up huge plans for the next 12 months, thinking where to go, what to pack and which activity I should try. But I know that out of my 100 things to do; only 10 of them will be accomplished! I am a certified, professional-grade procrastinator. Take this blog, for example. I have wanted to do this for so long but it took me years to actually get started! But now, I am walking the talk and making it happen! WELCOME to my first blog post!
Because family is so important to me, my major motivation in writing this blog is that decades from now, I want to show my great grandchildren how wonderful life is and that there is no shortage of good people around the world. There are so many places to go, so many languages to learn, so many cakes to devour and so many shoes to try on!
Growing up in a third world country, we did not have many of the things that you might take for granted. For example, my mother had to borrow a camera from her friend so she could have a photo of me after I was born. I literally only have 47 photos of myself and my family in my first seven years of life. There were no video cameras to capture my first walk, first words, and the first time I laughed, ran, or cried.

But now, I am changing that. Every place I visit is in my digital diary, every photo that I receive from a photo-shoot is on my portfolio and with this blog, I can now share my adventures with you whether it is planned or if it happened by accident! So this year, I hope to inspire you. Whatever it is that you want to do, procrastinate no more! Get your ass off the couch and DO IT!
There is no better time, not yesterday, not tomorrow but TODAY! Let 2017 be the year of change! Explore more, eat more, learn more, dress up more and LIVE MORE. Join me as this will be our best year ever!
See you out there,
