Is there any greater thrill than the rush of exploring a foreign land for the very first time? What about that feeling you get when you picture yourself getting ‘wanderfully’ lost down alleyways, through lush green forests and overlooking breathtaking concrete jungles. Does the thought of jetting off to vast and exotic destinations give you that fireworks in your belly feeling?
The dream is alive and it’s burning with each and every new post of your friend’s European adventure, yet there remains that small but mighty voice inside your head that tries to tell you that travel is not on your agenda. It’s the whisper of bills and responsibilities reminding you that your dreams are merely that - fantasies best left to the lucky few who found the funds to make their travelling dreams come true.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than
by the ones you did." - Apparently NOT Mark Twain
noun. 1. great enthusiasm and energy
The Very Zest was born from one traveller's passion (that's me - Emily) to help the day-dreamers become go-getters, and wannabe adventurers become motivated do-ers! If you're anything like I was three years ago, you’re convinced that you don't want to wake up in 5 or 10 years time and think to yourself "I wish I had’ve just done it - gone travelling and experienced the world". But I get it - there's still something on the inside holding you back. For me, it was the unknown. Not knowing how much to budget for a backpacking trip. Not knowing how or where to find reliable information about places to visit. Wondering if I will ever have enough money to travel without having to work.
Trying to figure out how to digest all the information being thrown at you across 27 different website tabs is exhausting - enough to see you hit the pause button on your dreams and continue living in that confined comfort bubble of yours.
