Guess what?!

Remember when I left everything behind to pursue my dream of traveling the world? I gave everything away, said “auf wiedersehen” to my friends in San Francisco, and was off on my sailing adventure through Mexico!

I had an absolutely amazing time, but I still had much of Central America and South America to explore before heading onto Africa and to the Himalayas. I was traveling through Panama last month when I had to receive an emergency appendectomy and returned to the States to recover. This wasn’t exactly in my plans, but it won’t stop my dream of traveling the world, especially now that I’m all healed up!

Want to know my BIGGEST DREAM? The absolute biggest dream I’ve ever wished for is to travel around the world for the next 6 months, all expenses paid, and at the end of it, have money left over to create my start-up, which would connect people all over the world to achieve their dreams in an unprecedented way!

I have fantastic news! I have an opportunity to win a contest that would pay for my travel around the world for the next 6 months + give me $50K at the end as seed money to begin my start-up!

This is how I fel about this contest! I literally jumped up and down for 30 minutes shrieking even knowing that it existed!

    This is so crazy because…when I was in Ethiopia volunteering my appendix was starting to go. I flew home (on schedule) and two days later it pop’d. What are the odds?

    • Jacqueline says:

      Wow! So, your appendix burst? Luckily, I made it to the hospital in time. Were you in the hospital for a long time? It’s great that you were able to get home!

    Or at least I think I did…. I clicked on the Twitter button and it got me to Tweet that I voted, lol.

    Good luck! 😀

        I precisely desired to say thanks yet again. I’m not certain what I would have followed without the tactics shared by you concerning such field. It seemed to be a very traumatic scenario in my circumstances, but coming across a professional manner you treated the issue forced me to leap with joy. I will be happier for this support and thus expect you are aware of a great job you happen to be doing educating most people by way of a site. Most probably you haven’t met any of us.
