Leaving Comfort for Growth & Adventure: Why We’re Leaving it All Behind

🌍✈️ Join Me on My Big World Trip Adventure! ✈️🌍

I’m beyond excited to share this big life journey with you. We’ve just packed up our home in North Fremantle, Western Australia, bid farewell to our beloved border collie Cassie (she’s off to a farm stay!), and embarked on what promises to be the trip of a lifetime.

For years, we’ve dreamt of taking our daughter out of school and living somewhere else in the world for a while, and now, that dream is becoming a reality! The best part? I’m taking my work with me, because most of it happens online.

As you probably know, I’m all about helping women live happier lives by transforming the way they think and feel. And let me tell you, leaving behind the stunning beaches and vibrant vibes of Freo isn’t easy. But change and stretching ourselves out of our comfort zones is where growth happens, right?

Preparing for an eight-month journey has been a whirlwind of reorganizing, decluttering, and packing. But amidst all the chaos, I’m reminded of a powerful truth: wherever you go, you take yourself with you. It’s how we think and feel on the inside that truly shapes our happiness.

We’re about to find out if our dream of traveling the world is as magical as we imagine, even though we know it will come with its fair share of challenges. Either way, I’m ready for this adventure, and I’m thrilled to have you along for the ride!

    • Hi Kelly,
      Thank you for sharing this amazing journey with us, it’s very exciting to just go with the flow and see where it takes you.
      That’s the only way to travel!
      I’m sure you will meet some beautiful people and see some amazing places on your way.
      When you are in Greece and you want to see something amazing, go to Turkey to Cappadocia it’s not far from Greece. Not many people know about this place but it’s a great experience and not anything you have ever seen before.
      Have a great journey, save travels.
      Love from Elisabeth xoxo

      • Aw Kelly!! So excited for you. You guys are going to have so many stories to tell!! Look forward to seeing all these destinations thru your eyes.
        You asked above whether I had ever taken a leap of faith etc..
        Certainly have!! Sold up in Auckland and bought a lifestyle block/farmlet in the countryside on South Island NZ! Best thing we’ve done in ages.
