Hi everyone my name is Beckie, im 23 and im from Dublin. So I suppose I will have to give a bit of an introduction before we dive into my crazy but wonderful life. Now before I begin i’d like to point out that I am not a professional writer, my family and friends always say that they love reading my stories/rants because of the way I word and spell things. They feel like they read it in my voice so going forward I will continue writing as I always have done ... so please don’t judge me and my bad grammer!! Also I should warn you I do curse a lot especially if im having a rant, I would class this blog as PG15 so proceed with caution.
Okay so here we go, anybody who knows me will tell you im a bit of a lunatic but in my opinion, the best people always are. Im a loud and very outspoken person so in other words, I never shut the fuck up and I’d always be out straight with you no matter what. Now because of this I have always been very good at helping people, im kinda like Oprah for normal people. I love helping people with their problems and motivating them to do better. Im a very spiritual person, I have very strong beliefs which im sure will come through in all my blogs. I believe that you can do anything you want to and I mean anything once you put your mind to it and make a plan, the only thing that ever stands in the way of you and your dreams is yourself and not following through on things. I believe life is always hard work but when you learn to enjoy the journey and not just the destination, that’s when you’ve really tapped into your own power and life gets a hell of a lot easier.
Ever since I was young all I wanted to do was travel, I love everything about it and I knew it was always going to be a big part of my life. My favourite part about travelling is getting out of your comfort zone and going somewhere that’s completely new. New place, new people, new culture, new way of living and doing things … basically a new life!! You can learn so much about yourself and others along the way. I plan on going all over the world to find all the beautiful and amazing things this world has to offer. Im starting my journey in November to Sydney where ill do a European Bartender Course, this will help me gets jobs anywhere I go as it’s recognized all over the world so i felt it was a smart move. After Christmas it was meant to be Thailand but with everything going on there at the minute im leaning more towards Cambodia and Vietnam for my birthday in January. After that I plan on moving up the Gold Coast and seeing as much as I can before I head to New Zealand around July. I haven't got and exact plan for New Zealand yet, I have a few things on my list and Figi is definitely in there somewhere so this part is to be continued …
Now im planner as you can see I always have been and I always will be, I live by my lists!! Im not joking I make lists for everything, im like Dory the fish so if I didn't write things down id probably get nowhere. Oddly enough though I think that’s what I like so much about travelling, the whole upending your life, jumping on a plane into the unknown and having to just wing it and see where it takes you. Although I have a very detailed plan up above im fully aware it probably wont go in that order however, it’s better to have some form of a plan than to go over blind with nothing sorted. Luckily for me I wont be travelling alone on my first adventure, I have two of my amazing friends Orlaith and Joe coming with me. They have been travelling before and have lived on their own for years so I couldn't have picked two better people to go with. I will learn so much from them and I know they’ll keep me alive ... to the best of their ability, which is the only thing keeping my family sane!! I cant even begin to imagine the crazy shit we will get up to but I know for a fact ill enjoy every minute of it and am so grateful to have these two in my life.
And that’s what brings me to why I made this blog. I felt it was a cool way to keep my family and friends updated on my travels, it makes me feel like I can bring them on the journey with me and hopefully inspire other people and give them the courage to do the same. Iv always had a way with words and told good stories so now im delighted im making good use of it. This will be something ill always have to look back on and remember that no matter how hard things get, with a bit of bravery and determination you can achieve anything you want to, there are no limits. I hope I can help other people like me to take the leap of faith into the unknown and start their own big adventures, wherever it may lead them.
So that’s a little starter pack of my life, ill fill you in on the rest along the way. There will be ups and downs, good days and bad days but they’ll be all life lessons and that’s what makes us stronger and allows us to grow. At the end of the day we only regret the chances we didn’t take, you’ll never regret taking a risk to change your life for the better. I hope you guys enjoy reading my story as much as I do writing it, until next time … …
