Before I could ever blog, I tried.

I started blogging 4 years ago on my first solo trip to East Africa. I was 21 at the time. I didn't know anything about websites, social media, etc. All I knew was that this journey was about to be epic and I wanted to share it.


I remember staying up late in the house I shared with four roommates in university, figuring it how to use Wordpress. It was such a struggle, but I felt so accomplished when I could get one little widget to work.


Once in a while, I get a glimpse of how much I've grown and taking this picture was one of those moments. I took this with a self-timer and tripod. I felt so free as I listened to the waves crashing. I never could have done this and you wouldn't be reading this if I didn't take small steps to venture online back then.


Never discount the little steps. Every micro step you take towards doing what you love adds up. The confidence to build is priceless. - AWL 💛
