Last Post On My Gap Year!

This post was quite overdue, actually. I've been thinking many times to write it, but probably I didn't want to, 'cause I wanted this gap year to go on ;).
This is probably gonna be the last post of this blog. I'm no longer on a Gap Year and actually my Gap Year lasted a few months (blame on me!).
I wasn't rushing in finding anything at all, but ideas kept coming. Having a free mind and free time is amazing. Ideas really come easily. You see the reality with new point of views and ask yourself quite a few questions and this makes the click on your mind.
At least it did it in mine ;).
With the same spirit I had when starting the Gap Year, I decided to actually start a new venture, and at the same time help out my family venture as well.
I decided to give it a try, with big dreams, passion and fun but aware that in case it doesn't work, it's not the end of the world.
This is actually the best learning I got. If it doesn't work, it's not the end of the world. It's an experience you learn from and your life goes on.
Life is about experiences, people, dreams and about who you are. And what I learnt as well is that this just depends on you. Nobody else. If you blame anybody else for your failures or frustrations, and if you say that other people are just lucky and you are not, you don't really get how lucky you are yourself. We're lucky we've one life. Wasting it would be just stupid.
Thanks to everyone who was part of this journey.
Enjoy life. Always!


  1. Awww... it's sad to read your last post. But I bet your new adventure is super exciting! You are so right saying that only "me" (or in most occasions) is responsible for everything: good and bad. Wishing you best of the best in this new beginning! La vita e bella!

  2. Hi,

    My name is KC Owens, I’m a college student and I love to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found your site and really enjoyed reading your posts. I have been to countries all over Europe with just my backpack and a camera. Since I am a college student and I have significant bills, it can be difficult to find ways to travel the world. However, I have done this several times, with less than ten pounds of luggage and while on a college dime!

    I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my tips and tricks with your readers. I put a lot of time into my traveling, it is my biggest passion and I would love to inspire others by sharing my stories, mistakes and triumphs. I look forward to hearing from you!
