2019 in Travels

Sometimes, you plan out the year to go in a certain direction and then life takes you competely by surprise and pushes you on an entirely different path. This was 2019 for me.

I had planned the greatest unusual trips for myself, but then I got an email from a publishing house with the most amazing news an aspiring author could possibly hear, and the launch of my very first book took all the time and energy that I had. I postponed many trips. But it’s okay.

It’s more than okay.

And I still got to do loads of travelling and adventuring in 2019, (just not as much as my travel-addict ass is used to). I’m still super happy about that.

Here’s what my year looked like in terms of travels.

I went back to Prague

 

 

 

And I went back to Austria

But Hallstatt was a first!

 

 

 

I climbed l’Acropole des Draveurs, in Charlevoix

 

 

 

I spent a week at Saguenay Lac Saint-Jean

 

I camped by the Fjord du Saguenay where I could hear and see the belugas

I climbed Xalibu Mountain in Gaspesie to celebrate writing a first draft!

And other small roadtrips to Montreal and Baie Saint-Paul, and the Fjord again!

This photo was taken just a couple of months back when I quit my job and pretty much ran away to the mountains with a friend. I can’t think of a word to describe the perfection of that feeling. I guess it’s something like what they call “living your truth.” It sounds cliché but it’s pretty spot on so #livingyourtruth 🤷🏻‍♀️ 🌻 This photo is me, deciding to stray from the conventional life we’re all expected to follow for reasons I will never understand. 🏔 It’s a wild, unexpected and raw piece of life when it felt like no one but us bothered to look. 🍂 And it makes me smile with my FACE, my MIND, and my LIVER because YES, I LISTEN TO KETUT. ✌🏼 So today, I’d like to know what’s something you wish you’d be able to do whenever you want, in the life of your dreams? A: Running away to the mountains. 🖤 🏔 #randomtripsarethebest #gorgeousviewseverywhere #bluesandgreen #spontaneousliving #mountainsarecallingme #fjorddusaguenay #fjorddusaguenaynationalpark #lookattheskyeveryday #livealittlelouder

2019 was not what I had planned.

It was spontaneous.

Full of last-minute trips with friends and family.

Sometimes only small roadtrips of only a couple of days, because it doesn’t need to be the other side of the world to remember who you are and what you want.

To remember that any day, anything could happen.

Here’s to hoping 2020 is filled with surprises and many more adventures.


Did you travel anywhere in 2019?

Share some of your memories in the comments!

Stay adventurous!

    My only trip was to London with a day in Bath. Not sure if I'll get an international trip in this year but I hope to visit Gettysburg PA for a long weekend.
