Happy, happy, happy Thanksgiving, TGFErs! I have so much to be thankful for this year, it’s almost hard to comprehend. My last few posts have focused mostly on what struggles I’ve been dealing with, as I fight to find a job in this difficult market and question my journey, so I’m thankful this holiday has arrived just in time for me to think of all I have to be thankful for instead.
100 posts – What a milestone!! It’s weird to think that I’ve been writing, coding and snapping pictures for The Girl From Everywhere for almost two years now. I started this blog as a class project at uni and never imagined how much I would enjoy the creative process of constructing blog posts. My life has changed significantly since October 2013, and I’ve been #TrulyBlessed to see some incredible things, and so, to celebrate I’m highlighting my Top 10 vacations since TGFE started.
After the fiasco that was my trip home to Dallas (alll the drinks were needed. ALL OF THEM!), I was not looking forward to hopping back on a plane merely a week later to return to Melbourne,but as it turns out, the trip home was fantastic. I had a 10 hour layover in Dubai & spent the day exploring the city I used to live in tourist style: visiting the world’s tallest building, gazing at fish in the aquarium in the mall, getting visited by a camel while sunbathing & soaking in the ocean with views of the world’s only 7 star hotel.
Soon after returning to Melbourne from New Zealand, I was back into my routine. When another Monday rolled around, I woke up expecting I’d be running to the 8:18 train and barely making into the office on time, but all of that was quickly forgotten when I answered a call from my father informing me that it was my grandfather’s last days and instead of a quick trip to work, I was in for a long haul flight to the US – a trip that would turn out to be one of the worst flight ever.
