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.
When I packed my life into a bag in 2011 and jetted off to South America with no plan, trekking the Inca trail was the only part of my trip I'd arranged before leaving home. I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. A trek that you need to secure a booking on three months prior to arrival? That must be something - and it really was. A majestic place one must experience to believe!
"You're going to see a Life Coach?" My good friend and colleague remarked with hesitation in her voice. "Be careful Abby, its always such a risk when you find these people online, you never know who or what you will get."
"Life is about the journey, not the destination." Some words I know have echoed in your mind time after time. Yeah yeah, I know you have heard it before, I'm sure. So I wanted to break it down and really dive into this topic because its something I became aware of at a very young age.
Another winter flickers past. We’re about to turn the calendar to September. Did you set new years resolutions? ...Eight months ago? Or perhaps your rolling your eyes at the fact I even mentioned them. Statistics show that most people give up their resolutions 2-3 weeks into the New Year and only 8-10% of people actually follow through with them. That seems quite a high number if you ask me.
Experiencing Iguazú Falls was simply magical. A place where the water dances, the world stops and the wonders of nature take your breath away.
I remember boarding the plane with no idea what I was doing. In February I'd booked the flight. A few short months later I'd packed my life into a small bag and completely turned my world on its head. I'd convinced myself I was just going on a travel journey, this turned in three and a half years away.
Never in my wildest dreams had I thought I would live in the mountains. I'd suffocate if I moved away from the ocean. I remember having this thought many times. But now I know, just like the ocean, the mountains too have a special vibe.
Cambodia has always been high on my travel list. So you can imagine how excited I was when the contract for my most recent expedition came through earlier this year. The training weekend for the trip fell on the same weekend as my tryouts for Team Australia Roller Derby. But as I've said many times before, divine timing is everything, things always turn out as they are meant too in the end.
A friend of mine looked me dead in the eyes and said: "You have the most amazing life." I froze as my eyes glassed over with tears and my face started to burn. "Every time I see what you're doing your adventuring somewhere new, climbing mountains, jumping off waterfalls or hanging out at the beach." Still frozen as the lump in my throat almost blocked off my airways. I had no response....she was absolutely right.
Whenever you have an important date set in your calendar it seems that the world will throw everything it's got at you, just to really see how bad you want it. I knew life was a bit of a rollercoaster but these last few weeks, a crazy patch, made me wonder if I was going to fly off the rails.
