My name is Laura, I grew up in New Jersey and no matter where I go I will always be a Jersey girl at heart. And no, not the fist pumping Jersey Shore type of girl. I'm the girl who wants to see the world through a local's eyes, eat food I've never heard of and try things that may seem completely different to my own culture.
I had my first taste of traveling abroad in 2007 when I went to Europe alone for twenty days. Yes, alone. Well sort of. (It was a group tour). After that trip, I vowed to myself to never stop traveling because it changes you. You come home seeing the world in a different light.
I've fallen in love with meeting new people and blending in like a local. Becoming a part of a different culture, gives me a fresh perspective of their world. And because of that I am able to start on a clean slate each time I travel to a new place. Over the years, I've learned to use my soul as my inner compass and embrace any tough times I may face. I listen to what my body tells me and trust my intuition in every situation. I chose to live unapologetically authentically me. I've had many experiences that happened on a whim of intuition and turned out to be a priceless experience, like staying at a hostel in Switzerland for twenty days and meeting new people everyday who I'm still friends with today.
It's moments where no picture, or video can capture what I feel when I travel. It's "You just had to be there." I cherish and chase those moments because they are rare and will stay with you for a lifetime.
A nomadic lifestyle requires spiritual growth whether you ask for it or not. Being a Spiritual Nomad isn't an easy path to choose but as travelers we continuously seek even when we are afraid. And the reward is grand.
I share my struggles, love, fears and almost everything that happens on my travels. We Jersey girls tell it like it is. So, I invite you to embark on this journey with me as my soul guides me around the world.
