These days if your an aspiring travel blogger then your on twitter. It’s easy to update and provides an awesome avenue to present your blog and individual angle to the world as you go. Not to forget its a great way to meet like minded folk and find out all sorts of stuff about them. Like this snippet about @shaunosaurus.
This week, I found a great example of an individual story with Abby at thejungleprincess.com. After reading her post titled Meet Mario it drove home the point that when traveling bad things can happen. What you do after is what defines both your journey and yourself.
I’m sure many would have just packed up and left, writing off travel as a horrible point in their lives. By staying put though she found new friends and acceptance.
I wonder what I might have done in that situation. Would I have taken the red pill and stayed in wonderland to see how far the rabbit hole goes, or picked the blue pill and ended the story there….
What would you have done?
Awww, I can’t believe you wrote about me! It was very, very hard, but I never once thought about going home… Leaving paradise wasn’t an option, and yes, I do still think of it as paradise! I’m so happy you took something away from my story. I was so nervous to share it! Thank you so much for the mention. I always love reading your blog!!
Hey Abby, it was a great story. While I hope nothing like that ever happens to me, it did make me think about what I might do if I was confronted with it.
Hi, nice to meet you both (just checked out Jungle Princess’s site as well).
Glad you shared your story Abby and thanks to the Aussie Nomad for leading me to it. It sucks that you got robbed but it’s great to hear about the community welcoming you in. In a way it was the price for a speedier integration, without Mario it could of taken months, if not years.
I’ve just found your two sites so I’ll make sure to save them on my “must read blogs” list.
Hi Aly, Thanks for stopping by. It really was a great story of Abby’s and while it definitely sucked to be robbed the community acceptance will be the lasting memory for sure.
