A Travellerspoint blog

Traveling again. I have to try.

Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. - Dale Carnegie

I've decided to take a chance. Anyone who has read my last blog post knows that being home has been difficult. So, I've decided to attempt to travel again. And I'm doing it in a very interesting way.

I found a travel agency that is promoting a new campaign for a Chief World Explorer. The agency is fairly new (about 2 years), and the campaign is a way of branding itself. The Chief World Explorer will get to travel around the world for a year blogging, vlogging, and using social media to promote his or her activities, adventures and explorations. You also get to participate in voluntourism activities at every destination in an effort to leave the destination a little better than how you found it.


When I first saw the opportunity, I got excited and nervous. I didn't decide to go for it until about a week after learning of it. Making yourself vulnerable is a big risk - not to mention, what would happen if my boss saw the video. I thought, "I've never done anything like this before." But you know what? I didn't know I could travel around the world independently until I actually did it. And I can do this job. And I can do it well.

I'm outgoing, I enjoy writing, I enjoy being in front of a camera. And I love traveling. I'm doing this! And I know I'm perfect for it.

So, here it is. If you like the video, please like it on Jauntaroo's website. You can like it every day from every device (phone, home computer, laptop, work computer - these all count as separate votes) until SEPT 15th when the contest closes. Likes aren't the only decision factor, but every like helps as it proves you're engaging and people enjoy watching you.

Please share with your friends and family, as well. Every like is appreciated!
