The regimented routine, bosses that sucked, traffic (oh my god, the traffic!) and just the soul-sucking feeling of spinning in a hamster wheel with no direction.
As much as we wanted to go traveling again, I was flat broke.
I spent SIX years saving up to travel and after backpacking the world for a year, I went back to the Philippines and spent the last of my money on a Master’s Degree.
Tom, who I met at the end of my trip had worked as a waiter in the UK for years to save up enough money, and although he technically still had enough funds to last him a few months, he decided to follow me to the Philippines.
After months of grinding it out day by day, I knew something had to change.
Earlier that day, during my lunch break, I was on my phone when I stumbled upon an article of a travel blogger making $5000 a month from their blog…all WHILE traveling.
I was dumbfounded!
How was that even possible? At that time, we had no idea people could even make money online!
The more I thought about it while stuck in the traffic jam, the more I was convinced that we should do it.
When I finally got home, I rushed into our apartment, yelling Tom’s name saying…
“I’ve got it all figured out. We should start a travel blog.”
Tom looks at me confusedly and said…”What’s a blog?"
