How do you look back on your travel memories? The common thread is that you remember the good times. Most of the time, you forget the rest. The seemingly ‘bad’ and ‘challenging’ times turn into moments of ‘overcoming challenges’ and you look upon these with a positive outlook. On occasions I believe you glorify these memories. Making these memories seem even more amazing than they actually were, attaching the strongest and most amazing emotions to them.
Kate left New Zealand at 20 years old to study the world instead of going to university. What she learned was something that school could never teach, travel opened her eyes to a whole new way of seeing life. At 25 years old, Kate found herself (on the Gold Coast) booking a last minute, one way ticket to Melbourne, triggered by what she claims to be a 'quarter life crisis' on the search to find a "good" job. After a year or so in the corporate world, feeling like a square peg in a round hole, Kate set off on an adventure again. Kate has not moved home to New Zealand but knows how it feels to move into many different situations. Now residing in Torquay, VIC, she has found a way to feel at home and has since created a business, Retreat Yourself Box, designed to encourage and inspire people to lead fulfilled lives.
