I hustled…and I hustled hard. Unlike most first world countries, you can get a part-time job during your university years to help build up your savings. In the Philippines, as minimum wage is low, you virtually have to work multiple jobs in order to make enough to save which is exactly what I did.
I was a teacher at that time and worked from 7am-3pm. Afterwards, I would do private tutorials and work for another hours. At one point, I was earning more from doing extra tutorial work than my job itself. My point behind this is while it seems that all I do now is travel, the quote work, travel, save, repeat is a favorite of mine.
Although I no longer work a job, we still apply this theory as we save up for specific trips and holidays along the way.
Teacher, to a principal, to backpacker, to travel blogger, and full-time digital nomad. As cliche as it sounds, you can be anything you want to be as long as you have the courage to pursue it. The quote above is one of my favorite sayings of all time. If there is one thing I know, it is that life is short. We keep saying one day I will travel the world.
One day, I will learn how to speak a new language. Life is short and time will creep up on you.
What was the longest running, and arguably the most popular, slogan ever? “ Navy. It's Not Just A Job, It's An Adventure”. It was developed by. But our pick for the best Saturday Night Live segment that has featured the U.S. Navy is from the early days. Datelined in Bayonne, New Jersey, this parody of the Navy's commercial – “It's not just a job. It's an adventure.
So ultimately, if your goal in life is to be happy, then why not pursue the things that do make you happy? I know this is easier said than done as many of us have obligations and responsibilities but I am one of those people that believe that if you want something bad enough, there is a way to achieve it. Life is not about making money. Yes, money makes things a heck of a lot more comfortable but are you really willing to sacrifice years and years of your life doing something you hate? So either find a job that you love or find a passion that your job can fuel. As harsh as this comes across, really take the time to take a look at your life and what you want out of it.
Step out of the box and open yourself up to other cultures, traditions, and religions. In Indonesia, we were invited by a local to his home for some dinner. The only food he and his family had was some rice and sambal heaps of homemade chili.
Even if my mouth was burning, I finished my plate because who was I to refuse the kindness that someone who opened up his home to us? I must have finished a pitcher of water but I was still grateful for the chance to get to know him and his family. I love the quote above by Cesare Pavese. Having been on the road for the last four years, he nailed it spot on.
Nothing is set in stone. Friends come and go, transportation breaks down, technology fails us yet at the end of the day, no matter how shitty your day has been, learn how to appreciate the little things in life like sunsets, the sound of the ocean, or a gentle breeze reminding you that you are lucky to be alive. The one by Lawrence Block, on the other hand, speaks about the spontaneity of travel and how we should be open to these things.
My partner and I have completely different travel styles. As you can imagine, this drives me nuts at times as I like knowing whether or not I have a place to sleep tonight. Interacting with locals, making new friends, or even getting lost. These are now things that I live for and love the most about traveling.
Hopefully, these travel quotes have given you some inspiration to travel the world and keep exploring this big beautiful world that we live in. I think this is yours, and I want you to be happy. Do you ever feel like Job? Is it because you think you might get better?
And the other is, you must not be ashamed of your work, and think it would be more honorable to you to be doing something else. If we are bored with life there is something wrong with our concept of God and His involvement in our daily lives. Even the most dull and tedious days of our lives are ordained by God and ought to be used by us to glorify Him. Even When Life Hurts. Without that faith, I suppose, they might never start. Somewhere on the way they lift their eyes to the summit and know they aren't going to reach it; and happiness then is looking down and enjoying the view they've got, not envying the one they haven't.
I settled enough money on her to allow her the freedom to do anything she wished. She went to boarding school for four years, and stayed to teach for another two. I believe you were in France with Win at the time.
Cat went for the interview, Cam and Amelia liked her, Beatrix and Poppy clearly needed her, and no one seemed inclined to question her lack of experience. We don't all love our jobs every day. And doing something you have passion for doesn't make the work part of it any easier It just makes you less likely to quit. I wash a dead man's brains out of his hair. That is my job.
I think that would freak me out. Bodies rushing bodies bolting Time for life a disregarding. Money to make and to grow old What about the hands to hold?
Do you want to get paid to travel the world like we do! Life is short and time will creep up on you. As soon as you take the first big step, that is when you will be reminded that adventure is out there. And doing something you have passion for doesn't make the work part of it any easier Coming from the Philippines, saving enough money to be able to do a round the world trip was not easy. I found my adventure in the oddest of places, deep in the sand dunes of Mu Nei, Vietnam when I met my partner Tom.
Deadlines, projects, people to meet What about our own two feet. Sullen faces like slates of grey
