Who Is Jamela?
Hi there! First of all, thank you so much for visiting my blog! My name is Jamela. I’m a half-Taiwanese half-Ghanaian, 23-year-old Senior college student (USC Fight On!), and solo travel enthusiast!
In this travel blog, I wish to:
- Show my readers how it is possible to live a life full of travel and adventure. And that by changing your mindset and self-perception, you can change the way you live your life
- Provide valuable resources such as detailed travel tips, recommendations, and informative guides to better the travel experiences of my readers.
- Inspire my readers to live a life full of memories and adventures. One of my favorite life quotes is by the famous Irish poet, Oscar Wilde. He said, “I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read on the train” Haha, how amazing! Imagine living a life so full and spectacular that reading your own diary is a source of entertainment. That, my friend. Is a life well-lived.
- Practice what I preach, which is to “Live your life to the fullest, and follow your heart’s desire!” I’m about to graduate from university and enter the “real world” as they say. But who says the adult world has to be scary? No matter what the future has in hold for me, I want to live my life the way I want, and a life with no regrets. Through sharing my travel stories online, I can hold myself accountable to my goals and inspire others to do the same
- Make Your life a little bit easier. I find great joy in making a positive influence on those who I cross paths with in this lifetime. No matter how long you stay on my blog for, I just wish the time that you’re here, you are able to gain some kind of valuable resource or ideas that can go on to change a small part of your life.
When Did You Start Solo Traveling
My first ever solo trip was a 3-month adventure to Guatemala when I was 20 years old. You’re probably asking, “Why Guatemala?” And the short answer is, I wanted to learn Spanish in an immersive environment. And since Guatemala was the cheapest country to do so (I did some research), I booked a one-way ticket there. I ended up loving the country and stayed there the entire summer, living my absolute best life.
After that first solo trip to Guatemala, I caught the travel bug! All I wanted to do was explore the world and see as many parts of it as I can. And as a broke college student, I had to carefully budget my expenses to make that happen. But hey, I did it! AND SO CAN YOU!
