Musings: Six years of Blogging

Six years ago, I joined the blogging world as a lifestyle blogger with the cringiest name imaginable, I can’t even bring myself to type it.😂

It was supposed to be a space where I’d share fashion and style tips, recipes, life updates and travel content. I never ended up posting on that site, maybe because deep down I knew that I wanted to share travel content.

Fast forward to August 2015, I was back home after a two-month volunteer opportunity in Uganda with AIESEC where I’d met digital nomads and people travelling around the world full time. My interactions with them piqued my interest and suddenly my childhood dream of travelling the world seemed attainable. I then decided to start this blog, to share my travel experiences as well as practical tips to help you travel smarter.

It’s been one hell of a journey but I wouldn’t have it any other way. We’ve since stayed at a hostel in Diani, kissed giraffes, camped by Lake Turkana, gotten lost in the Netherlands, danced and pet a cheetah in Kisumu, ziplined, gone wine tasting, bungee jumped, gone white water rafting, carried snakes, tried wall climbing, gone on game drives, chased waterfalls, gone hiking, stayed at some of the coolest places and we’re currently in a pandemic.

Through it all one thing has remained constant, the love of travel and this beautiful community that I’m so blessed to have. I enjoy sharing this space with you and I love seeing you taking the leap and going on meaningful experiences that I have suggested to you.

I can only hope that OCD continues to inspire you to travel and live your best life.
