A girl from London decides it’s time to follow her dreams…
“…Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea…”
My name is Ola and I am 32 years old.
After 10 years of living a 9-5 life in one of the busiest cities in the world, I have chosen to break free, leave my job and to go travelling.
My mission on this trip is to experience as much as I can from the world and from the people I meet along the way, in the hope that I will learn more about myself and discover what it is that I really want to do with my life. The biggest question I face, perhaps, is a simple one we all ask ourselves at times: what makes me happy?
I need time; time away from the big smoke, time off from work and time to focus on my dreams. I want to sing about everything I see and experience from the world, and hope that my story will inspire you to follow your dreams as well!
It’s never too late.
This blog is a personal account of my travels and my journey through an unsung world.
What’s in it for you?
