The World As I See It Turns 2

theworldasiseeitturns2I can’t believe it was already 2 years ago that I decided to start this travel blog (my second blog – first on is Lady of the Zoos which turns 3 this month) before I left for my third trip abroad.  When I started The World As I See It it was just another hobby and continued to be one until I decided to go to TBEX-Toronto last summer to learn more about blogging, the travel blogging industry and realized that it didn’t have to be JUST a hobby anymore, that if I worked hard and was dedicated I could truly turn this into a full time job – or at least a part time job.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m no where close to that Full-Time status but it is something I’m working towards – along with another blog and a full-time job – but that’s life.

Though I didn’t think it possible, my passion and desire to travel and explore has grown expediential.  When I first started traveling I never thought I’d travel solo, but I took My First Solo Trip last year and am currently on another, longer one and also have another planned for later this year!  Just goes to show you never say never!

Here are my Top 5 Posts of All Time:

1. My Top 10 Parks of Charlotte
2. What Kind of Traveler Are You?
3. Postcards From Birthdays Abroad
4. Writer Wednesdays – Jennifer Turnbull
5. Top 3 Dream Hikes

I have to give a BIG “Thank You” to all of my readers, I truly appreciate your interest, your comments and hope you’ll enjoy more adventures with me here at The World As I See It!

“I finally start to feel the excitement of a new adventure shudder beneath my skin.  It’s at this time I realize just how fortunate I am to have this life, single and nothing holding me to one place; the life I chose.  A life filled with new destinations, meeting new people and the opportunity to open my eyes, my heart and my world to new possibilities.  I’ve also come to learn along the way that travel is not solely about the destination – travel is about the journey – about getting there, getting lost, finding your way and finding out who you really are.” ~ excerpt from one of my first posts The Art of Travel
