Full Time Traveller

Wander lust - Rimareyka.writes

Every time I meet someone new, they always ask me this question, "What's your occupation?" or "What do you do in life?" as if the answer will determine and judge on who I am, what kind of person, how much I earn, and all sorts of things that will derive from it.

It's been two years since the last time I worked and in the beginning, I would tell them that I wasn't working. And when applying visa, I'd simply fill the blank up with a word "housewife," although I couldn't really be called one as the time spent at home was almost equal with the time spent outside home and/ or home country (around 55% only).

Flying horse - Rimareyka.writes

And it's already August now!!! I'm still that white horse with flying wings that keep traveling around the world.

Some trip was planned but many were decided on the last minute basis. And back to the question that people often ask me earlier, I think I can confirm now telling them that I'm a full-time traveller :P:P:P

Many people can just dream about your occupation. They just don’t have the courage to do what they really want to. In this regard, you are doing full justice to your life. I support you and cheers to many more travelling in your life 😉
