I’ve always loved traveling. I distinctly remember wanting to be an explorer when I was a kid. I kept a journal highlighting all the places I’d one day visit. Many I studied about in school and others I’d see in the movies.
In May of 2010 I stumbled upon a youtube video posted on the facebook wall of a good friend of mine. The video was of a guy named Matt who documented his travel around the world while dancing around quite goofy in front of the camera. I remember thinking to myself, “How cool is that! I’d like to one day do that too.” Less the goofy dance of course.
Many of us often dream but do nothing about it. I understand we live within certain constraints but I believe anything is possible.
So this is where it begins for me. On September 17, 2012, I will begin my 50 day trip around the world. I will document my travel and share my experience with you all each step of the way. My travel will be quite minimal with nothing more than the bag on my back, a yoga mat, and a camera.
My trip will originate here in the Philippines and move eastward towards the US, South America, Canada, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia before making my way back home. I intend on visiting over 30+ historical landmarks throughout my journey. At each historical landmark I will incorporate my yoga practice. I will be dedicating my yoga practice to all women stricken by breast cancer. This entire journey is dedicated to my younger sister Christina who is a breast cancer survivor.
I intend to be back home November 7, 2012.
As I begin the planning stages and map out my journey I will be sure to fill you in. Please stay tuned.
