I followed the standard, set-out route that we are conditioned to follow from a young age. I finished high school and went straight into university. My only detour was changing degrees at the end of first year; to something I thought I could enjoy a bit more. After graduating I then ticked the next box and found a job. I ended up in a job at a large corporate, unrelated to what I had just finished studying, going from Industrial Psychology to Marketing.The intention was to stay there for 2 years, get some experience and move along. Six years later and I’m at the same company that I will be leaving on 31 March.The work was good, interesting and difficult. I worked hard, learnt a huge amount, and made my way up to a brand manager position, but eventually I wanted more. I didn’t just want another corporate job, I wanted something completely different. I wanted to escape the cubicle life that I had created for myself. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try new things, see new places and meet amazing people.After teaching English in Chiang Mai Thailand for a year, my boyfriend and I hit the road on at the end of May 2015 and have been freelancing and slow travelling our way around Southeast Asia. Absolutely loving it!!!
