: 5 What's up my travel blogger fam?! I'm Divya from @gonewithawhim and I can't keep calm or carry on because I'm taking over #femaletravelbloggers forb#ftbtakeovertuesday today :D
I have one foot precariously planted in the bustling land of India (where I was born, raised, sumptuously fed and where my family still lives) and the other one in the US (where I work as a software ninja and defend the internet :P). With two oversized bags and a pocketful of dreams, I moved to the other end of the world about a decade ago. Living in this melting pot of cultures kindled my wanderlust and the dormant shutterbug in me, and I fell in love with traveling and waking up to new sunrises every week.
I believe in chasing the life you dream of and I have been trying and striving to do just that - build my life around the things I'm most passionate about - travel, technology, and my family. I don't think that you have to throw away your 9-5 job if you don't want to and that if you try really hard, you can build a life where all your caprices collide. The great thing about my job is that it allows me to be a digital nomad (at times), so I'm either seesawing between India or America or living a slow-travel life on the road; working and exploring at the same time :D It's hectic sometimes but I wouldn't have it any other way :)
. ⁉️ So ladies, let me pick me your brains. What triggered your wanderlust? Are you living the life of your dreams? If you are not, shoot for the stars and remember: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain.
