Exactly 2 weeks ago, I left my job at EY and it was probably the scariest (maybe bravest) thing I’ve ever done. I knew the career at EY wasn’t for me but I stuck it out for 5 years. Within the 5 years, I learned the importance of teamwork and hard work. I’ve made tons of friends and was assigned to a few cool projects but that wasn’t going to be good enough to keep me around. I wanted to pursue my passion in a career that was more exciting, interesting and meaningful to me. The answer is travel. If there’s one thing I could do while I’m eating, sleeping, breathing, or pooping, it’s travel (anything travel related). Yes, I like to travel but more importantly, I like to go through travel blogs, quotes, and websites to see what else I could learn about travel. I’m really looking forward to what lies ahead in 2014 🙂
Over the last 2 weeks, Diana and I went to Colombia because I’ve heard of many great things about the country (the food, culture, beach, people and activities). We mainly saw Cartagena and Santa Marta and didn’t get to make our way down south to Medellin or San Gil because it started to get cold and it was raining the entire time so we decided to go home earlier than planned. Either way, we had a great time and squeezed in some beach time! We decided to head to LA instead of going back home but for some odd reason, the flight was cancelled so we re-routed again to Orlando for a 2day trip to Universal Studios. February is an excellent time to visit the theme parks because there were no lines and we only had to wait about 10 minutes per ride (awesome!!). Even though there were barely any lines, it still took us the entire day to explore each park. I could imagine how much longer it would take with kids and more adults but I am excited to visit Orlando again in 10 years…! (mark my words) It was definitely a good way to unwind before coming home to more snow.
The heart will always be where home is, New York City.
