The best way to start? Living a life confidently in the direction of your dreams.
If you look back on our Instagram, our very first post was this: "Your dream job doesn’t exist. You must create it." Ironically, I chose to quit my full time job many years ago to follow my dreams without having a concrete idea of actually knowing what to do.I chose to take time to relish in travelling for a couple of months discovering new destinations and experiencing different cultures I was passionate about. All I had was the drive to pursue, the curiosity to see where it would lead, and the courage to take that leap.When I think about it, that’s all that you need to take that chance in pursuit of your dreams. Being aware that you need to grow your wings and learn to fly on the way down. That’s how I turned my travel dreams into reality, and eventually into my full time work as a travel photographer and blogger. All whilst building a community of like-minded individuals (like you!) to share this crazy-wild-awesome journey with.

How you can get started with turning your dreams into reality
1. Create a vision board of your dreams. Include pictures, words, objects, dates - anything that brings your dream into life.
2. One by one, break down your dream with steps to making it happen. This could include anything from a specific savings goal to skills to learn before leaving for a trip.
3. Set up a plan of action by allocating time every week with tasks that bring you closer to your dreams.
Sticking to your plan, and each of the weekly tasks, is the key to making it happen.
