NaNoWriMo word count is today: 46 0031 words.
There’s no quote on the blog today as I’m participating to the Southern Cross Travel Insurance photo competition.
I was born in Montreal (1) but my parents are Lebanese. When I was 19, I travelled for the first time overseas. I felt a big part was missing inside me. Adventure meant going back to my roots, discovering where I came from, connecting with my origins in Lebanon (2).
At 27, adventure meant booking a tour to Italy (3) one week before departing, travelling alone, staying in Italy for one week and meeting the man of my dream on the doorstep of a hotel in Rome (4). This trip changed my life; on that tour, I met the man who would become my husband.
In December of the same year, adventure meant taking a plane to the other side of the world, to Australia (5), and meeting with the man I had seen only for one week in Italy and had only contact with by phone and emails for a few months. Adventure meant taking a big leap of faith.
I was 28 when I travelled to the Dominican Republic to be the maid of honour of my best friend. Adventure meant sticking up for friendship (6).
For my thirties, adventure meant moving permanently across the world to Melbourne (7) and saying good-bye to my home town, to my family and my friends and hello to a new life, new people and many new things to discover.
Adventure mean to me today: following my heart (8) and travelling the world with my husband (Thailand, 2011 (9)).
