Join wild tribe...
You've had the most amazing adventure, travelling, working and living across this beautiful planet. Now your back to where you left off. Back home, the 'real world.' You have changed so much, you've grown, you've seen, you've experienced. But back home, nothing has changed. You feel like you don't fit in anymore. Maybe you feel stuck, lost, uncertain and you just cant relate to those around you. Or maybe you just want to find a place to share your adventures.
Ive created the WILD TRIBE for you and all of us. A tribe of like minded people, travellers, adventures and wanderlusters. A place to come together after experiencing so much of the world to exchange experiences, share stories and celebrate your adventures.
Do you think its true that ignoring is becoming a little more common? How sad that ignoring someone in our presence and being on our phone is becoming more and more accepted. Apparently this has been termed 'phubbing' phone snubbing. According to a study more and more people are phubbing due to internet addiction, smartphone addiction, self-control, and FOMO fear of missing out.
Had our brains really been severely affected by the copious amounts of alcohol we had consumed in Argentina? Or was it simply just the all night parties that Buenos Aires had severed up to us? Perhaps we had we just become lazy and unable to work to a schedule of time since we were now ‘travellers’ with no routine and no order to life.
The 'excitement' phase of seeing family and friends moves through pretty fast and all of a sudden you thinking to yourself ‘what next?’ Not to mention that everyone around you is also asking ‘What are you going to do now?’
Being highly self aware and knowing our likes and dislikes is such an important quality. This helps us to choose how we will spend our time, what type of people we like being with, what activities we like to engage in, events we want to go to and places we want to see. This can lead us to falling into a pattern of always doing things that we know are familiar to us, because we know we like doing them.Sometimes this also means we stop looking at things that we don’t know. This is often where we find the adventure in our lives.
My eyelids were heavy and the air I breathed in was cold. Like sardines in tin, we were squished into a rickety old mini van. The van clunked up the mountain and we bounced around inside. The day had not yet dawned but as I forced my eyes open, I caught glimpses of the snow covered terrain outside.
Hitting the road to see a new country or just holidaying to your favourites beachside destination? When we travel we start to lean in and embrace powerful new habits. Sometimes they come naturally and go along with the mood of our journey, other times there is no choice but to be a little more courageous.
The reverse culture / re entry shock transition brings about a wide and range of emotions across a broad spectrum. Sometimes you feel on top of the world full of excitement to settle back into your home and see family and old friends whilst other times you will feel sad, empty and lost. Your left wondering why you even returned home in the first place.
Have you been travelling the world for the 6-12 months, 2, 3, 5 years? Or perhaps you've been living and working in another country? The time has come to return home...the departure date has crept up on you and your time overseas is coming to an end? OR...Perhaps you have just arrived home or been home for a few months now. Chances are by now you've heard about the dreaded reverse culture shock and are maybe even experiencing it. You know that feeling when you come home and just don't feel like you belong? Your lost, stuck or just don't relate anymore.
After leaving the mountains just three weeks earlier, I found myself back at the airport in the early hours of the morning. 12 uni students and I were about to embark on a five week tour of Asia. As part of their business studies ‘Global business Asia’ we would visit local companies, social enterprises and business in Asia. Add to this the ‘assisted backpacking’ style travel throughout Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and China.After leaving the mountains just three weeks earlier, I found myself back at the airport in the early hours of the morning. 12 uni students and I were about to embark on a five week tour of Asia.

You can use 'flow' to draw adventures into your life, rather than always chasing them! What do I mean by that? To gain a better understanding of this concept, lets first take a look at what FLOW actually is. Flow can be defined as "a steady continuous stream of something" or "moving steadily and continuously in a current or stream." In our case flow is a steady continuous stream of living your life in joy, ease and adventure, it will feel like you effortlessly floating along in the stream of your life.
