You don't live in a 9 to 5 world.

Some people don't have the travel gene, but if you're reading this, there's a good chance that you were born an explorer.

Do you know the story I first got hooked on traveling? In case you don't before, here's what happened (and even if you have, if I have a juicy new detail to share)! 

I was teaching English in the rolling hills of Italy, living with host families and eating heaps of authentic Italian pizza. I didn't bring a watch, which was silly because I had to manage kids running around all day, but thankfully my host mom lent me one. 

I was struck by the message on it! All the numbers on the watch face were jumbled and around the edge was written, "You don't live in a nine to five world."

Now, this is when I was in university and had no idea that I actually would not live in a 9 to 5 world.  

It was an omen. 

I had to give the watch back, but the message stuck with me. What if i'm not meant to live in the 9 to 5 world?!

Recently, a follower of mine heard this story, found this watch online, bought it and mailed it to me. By some epic miracle, this watch has come found it's way back to, 5 years later!!

It was surreal to hold it in my hand. 

Its possible that life has been giving you signs like this. Don’t ignore them. Pay attention to the details and lessons in your life. This is what I’ve been doing for years, and it’s lead me on an extraordinary journey

Here's my latest travel vlog from Birmingham, UK. I show you a glimpse into my life of travel, how I work (without an office), stay fit and other shenanigans.

Keep loving, sharing and being awesome. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of my life and this tribe.
