I’m super excited to introduce you to Becca, our newest Woman of the Week. I’ve known Becca since late middle-school when we met through church. She was actually part of my first international trip (without my family)! We traveled to Jamaica together with our youth group for a week. Looking back, it was definitely something that spurned my passion for travel, and I suspect it had a similar impact on Becca.
I lost touch with Becca when we went to different schools for college but when I saw her start posting about her adventures in Australia over the past year, I realized I needed to get back in touch! She’s spent the past year or so in Australia working as an au pair, road-tripping across the country with her new friends, and making everyone jealous with her adventures at home. She’s headed back to Indy for a bit just but I’m excited to see where her work and travels takes her next.
Enjoy her tips and Aussie pics, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to move to the land Down Under too after reading her story.
Connect with Becca:
Tell us about yourself?
Why do you travel?
How do you balance work and travel?
What’s the best lesson you’ve learned from your travels?
There are probably two main things I have learned. First, that anytime someone invites you to do something that sounds fun go ahead and just say yes. Who knows when you will have the chance to do it again. The second, you will learn who your real friends are while you’re away. Prepare yourself that life won’t be the same when you return home because you won’t be the same.
THANKS FOR READING BECCA’s STORY!
