If the story of your life were written in a book, would anyone want to read it?
I remember this question from a U.S. Navy commercial I saw several years ago. In that moment I committed to making my life story something that others would want to read. To ‘leave it all on the field,’ get out of the comfort zone and follow my heart (preferably without joining the navy!)
As it turns out, this is the same mantra that AdventureHoney follows. When I started looking for work, this was what jumped out at me. Here’s this company that walks the talk and basically helps people find exactly what I’m looking for…and they’ve made a business out of it…neat huh?!
So you’re probably wondering: who’s hijacked the AdventureHoney blog?! My name is Jeremy and I’m proud to say that I am the new AdventureHoney intern. Though I was born and raised in the good ol’ U.S. of A, I have always spent my free time scheming up ways to get out into the wild and explore the world.
I graduated from Vassar College in May 2012. After graduation, everyone was looking for a job in New York. It’s what you do, right? You go to school, work hard, get good grades and…get a job. Well, that’s a nice plan for some, but for me something just didn’t feel right. My heart was pushing me in a different direction.
So, I followed my heart. And my heart led me to Spain!
Immersed in the Spanish language and culture while upping the ante on my high school Spanish has so far been the best thing I’ve ever done.
The very first thing I did when I arrived here in Spain was hop on a train and head on down to the Tomatina, the huge tomato fight free-for-all. (See photo above) The sensation of being completely squished among 40,000+ other revelers while swimming in tomato guts and tossing them at strangers is an experience that I will take with me to the grave.
Nothing feels better than to know everyday that you’re following your dreams.
What moment spent traveling will you remember to the day you die?
