Turning 30 was an enigma for me. After achieving expected milestones – the steady partner, the career ladder, the coveted house behind the picket fence – I found myself in limbo.
All of a sudden I experienced a scattered sense of identity and started to rethink life. Unable to tolerate the rat-race and conform to society any longer, I quit my job as an architect, left the partner I was about to marry, sold the house I was working to pay for, and said goodbye to my friends and all that was familiar to embark on open-ended extended solo travel.
I left my entire life in Sydney in the hope that travel would reveal marvellous and meaningful experiences, and that I might be able to answer unanswerable questions for myself. The path was vague but like a rolling stone I wandered along and soon discovered that I was good at travelling on my own. I documented my adventures through three continents, 20 countries, and over 50 cities.
My journey tested me physically and mentally, but the experiences I gained – couchsurfing with 30 strangers all over Europe, crab-hunting in the Arabian Gulf, attending secret siestas with the Spanish, climbing an active South-East Asian volcano at dawn – will stay with me forever.
My journey is now over and the result is the creation of this book. I hope that it will help other girls on their own search for adventure and inspiration, and have as awesome a time as I did. Travelling rules.
