New Zealand - I quit, Yes !

So here I was trying to figure out what I really wanted to do in life. Normal routine 9 to 5 office job, Or to shake things up a lil bit. Oh well, when you are young and free, maybe not that wild anymore, there will be a time where you need a break from everything in your life and concentrate being alone, spending time with your good self. Not you, not them but ME !!

Me at Rangitoto Island, Auckland- New Zealand

Some where in Northland during our ( with Vasya) bicycle ride up north.

So I applied Working Holiday visa for New Zealand and I got it !!! No time wasted, booked my ticket, found a host via couchsurfing and I quit. Yes, I did ! I quit my job after quite a long conversation with my Manager over a few occurrence. He finally accepted my decision and I was set free!

People often ask me what is the big deal of leaving everything behind? Such a daring person to be travelling alone. How could someone do such thing to pack up and just leave ? What about your commitments etc?

Well, I would say that when it is the time, it is the time ! After all, why wait when we still have the energy? If not now, then when?

I have to learn how to spend my freedom and carefree life wisely over the span of 6 months while in New Zealand. No regrets whatsoever. Something that I would recommend you to do at least once in your life. Alone!

They say it is best to travel with few different types of people in your life:
1. Family
2. Friend (s)
3. Special someone ( Boyfriend / Girlfriend )
4. Sibling (s)
5. Your good self !

What better excuse to enjoy being alone while I have the opportunity. Aye ?

6 months living under the budget and hoping that money will drop from the sky was something risky to live by. I did not go to trees and hoping to pluck money from it. Nevertheless, it was one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life -  to live in risk.

Hey you, Just go for it !! It does not have to be a Working Holiday or anything in particular. To travel is to explore, set yourself free, learn and to experience.

 To travel is to LIVE. Now, get your butt out there ! 

Remember to apply International Driving Permit if you plan on driving for an adventure.
