If you have been following my explore Lagos series, you will notice that I’ve mentioned how uncomfortable I feel not exploring places. Together, we have been to Lekki Conservation Centre, Nike Art Gallery, Terrakulture and Apapa Amusement Park.
Few days ago, I updated my life ambition via WhatsApp. I want to be a traveler. In primary school, I wanted to be a doctor, in secondary school an accountant, I am currently studying to be a psychologist, now traveler? Girl, you’re not getting younger you should get your life together.
I know! I know! The thought was so random. Although, I’m not going to deny the influence of a travel agency I recently saw on Instagram on that decision. By God’s grace, I’ll progress to be a licensed psychologist by getting my Masters after my B.Sc. I like psychology. It’s something I’m happy doing. (School is stressful btw) Ultimately, I want to be able to travel to places on a regular.
I have considered the pros and cons of this thought. It is such a beautiful thing to see the world from various cultures, races and places. I love the idea. I’ve only been to Benin Republic and I was planning a trip to Ghana later this year but I don’t know the plausibility of that again.
It’s one thing to want to travel, it’s another thing to be able to afford it. After I posted it, I really thought about finances. In the first place, nobody sent me message. I should get my grip on it. It makes zero sense to be in Bora Bora on my life savings then I’ll go back to start hustling again. If I really want to make it a reality, I need to figure that out.
I really do hope that I am able to incorporate it, somewhere in my life’s journey. Right now, if you inquired about my dream job. I would reply travel blogging. It might seem like the lazy option out and seem ‘unrealistic’ but I’m just projecting my feelings now.
At the end of the day, as my friend Wura said, “Your imagination doesn’t cost you anything so why can’t you dream big”
Do you like the idea of traveling the world?
