The Soul Searcher
Maybe it’s time we start getting to know each other…
I am definitely a country girl
My heart yearns for lush green hills and quiet meadows. It is in solitude that I find time for the sweet contemplation of life. This does not mean that I cannot appreciate the hustle and bustle of a good city however! I revel in the exhilarating rush that only city life can bring – just in moderation!
Music is my life
The travel bug hit me during my teenage years when I decided the best use of my free time was to pursue the musical loves of my life across the world when they toured. I have travelled across the world – all for the love of music!
As you can probably tell from my previous omission, I am a little music obsessed! You can read all about the musical loves of my life here and see why I have been adoringly “fan girling” over Ronan Keating for over twenty five years now!
Music has blessed me with some of the most rewarding friendships I have ever had and there is nothing better than sharing something you love with the people you love!
So what do I want from life?
I want to be happy!
Having a well paid job and numerous luxuries doesn’t fulfil me. Basing my life on such things has ultimately led to an unhappy and unfilled Sandra.
I’ve had such an intense desire to travel for so long that I feel it is my calling. I want to explore the big wide world and traverse unknown streets seeking out anything soul calls out for.
Giving it all up
So that’s what I am doing! I traded my predictable and safe life to travel the beautiful unknown.
My soul-searching journey started in Thailand where I spent an incredible month enjoying my first real taste of solo travel. You can read a brief overview of my trip here. I then moved on to Australia where I spent the year digging deep and working hard on my “inner peace”. Now I am on the next chapter here in New Zealand.
I hope I inspire just one person to travel because I believe living with regret is the worst thing a person can do to themselves! So push yourself out of your comfort zone and spread those wings. Turn yourself from a caterpillar into the beautiful butterflies I know we all can be.
