WHO WE ARE
So you want to know a little bit more about the minds behind the OFF THE BEATEN PATH LIFE? So here we go…
The OFF THE BEATEN PATH LIFE is run by a small team of young people passionate about travelling and whose aim is to share their personnal experiences and acquired knowledge and learn more about the world with other travellers. We’ve been travelling the world for some years now and we started writing this blog since the beginning of 2016, and although it is a new endeavour it is already a labor of love.
But why did we decide to start writing about our adventures around the world in the first place?
Like most people we were always either full-time, 9 to 5 job, employees, students, or dependent children so we had never really experienced a self-directed period of our lives in which we were actually trying to accomplish something by ourselves. Something new. This type of subservient arrangement trains a person to need others for direction. We, like most people, were afraid to take risks. But something inside us told us that this arrangement would never make us happy. And the pursuit of happiness is worth all the risks! Right?
With this in mind we left our 9 to 5, secure, well paid jobs to search for something else. We wanted to travel the world so why not try to make a living out of it? And that is why this blog was created.
I’m not gonna lie to you. In the beginning the feeling of absolute responsibility for the outcome of our lives was a frightening thing! It still is! But we soon realized that the freedom to choose our own way, to live at our own pace, and to be accountable to no one else but ourselves, compensated for any fear that we might have.
We are now part of a growing community of people who have chosen to live an OFF THE BEATEN PATH LIFE and we couldn’t be happier with our decision!
