Preparing to Depart

Bags Packed

How do you feel when you are going to start a new chapter of your life?

It feels like I have been asking myself that question every couple of years for as long as I can remember.

Whether it be moving abroad for study, starting the path of a “university graduate”, starting my first business legitimate business, or hitting the road to try a different lifestyle.

I feel that I never completely sign off from the previous path, always leaving an avenue back to where I was before. This time is no exception, my previous business still remains to provide some security for the next few months, but my heart is moving forward with the excitement of trepidation.

Moving to London almost two years ago I never dreamed that I would be leaving on a trip right now. I was confused and unguided about what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go. I always found it funny when people called me productive, or driven, because that is about as far from my internal truth as I could imagine. I felt unproductive at work and was looking for a way out, but couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I had the encouragement of a great girlfriend at the time and decided to go for it on my own. Since then I have never looked back.

I have my entire London flat packed into 12 boxes and bags and I am starting to feel the excitement of the trip looming. Oddly, having too much stuff with me is my biggest worry at the moment. But that can easily be solved leaving stuff behind.

I still have to pack over the next few days but I’m ready for the next chapter!

Keep travelling,

John Venture
