Welcome, dear readers, to my blog that will soon be filled with swashbuckling stories, death-defying feats, and many amazing adventures. My name is Lizzy, and my job title is “Travelling Adventurer”. I like to travel the world and make it a better place as I go along. But I’ve realized that while I’ve left my mark on parts of the physical world, I haven’t left my mark on the World (Wide Web) yet. Thus, this blog is born.
So what will you find in this blog? I recently wrote a list of 100 things that I want to do before I die. Along the way, I wanted to share with others what those goals are and how I’m going about achieving them. I also hope to inspire other people in pursuing their dreams- no matter how great or small they are. And I want to document it in a manner where anyone with a few minutes of free time can come along on the adventure.
So just what caused me to sit down and write this list? I’ve come to realize that I am not a cat with nine lives but a human being with just one. And I want to do as much as I can with it before it ends. I was also inspired by things like the movie The Bucket List and A Walk to Remember, where people with only a little time left go out and live their lives with passion and zest.
But unlike those movies, I’m not near the end of my life (at least I hope not!). I’m in my mid-twenties and I have my whole life before me. I don’t want to live a life of quiet desperation, but to go out and change the world and to leave people better then when I met them. By creating a list of goals, it gives me something specific to focus on.
Of course I’m expecting to run into all kinds of problems and mishaps along the way as I pursue those goals, but that’s half the fun. Even if I don’t achieve all my goals (and some are quite ambitious!) I figure I’ll have a good time just trying and will learn a lot more about me and the world around me.
So I hope you’ll come along for the ride. I don’t know where all we’re going, but it’ll be one unforgettable trip!
