How can you afford everything?
„How can you afford your travels etc.?“ That is definitely one of the questions I get asked most often. From the outside my life may look like that I always sit in a tropical place drinking a cocktail…
…but of course that is not the case 😉 Behind everything there is a lot of hard work!
Already in high school I’ve always worked really hard. When I was only 13 years old I started working as a babystitter. Later I worked three times a week in a bakery. I had to be at work there at 5 am. Hence, I could never go out. Or when I did I had to go from the club straight to work 😀 However, by not going out very often and working a lot I’ve always been able to save quite a high amount of money. Some of which I then spend on flights etc.
Because my big passion has always been traveling! Other people save their money for an expensive chanel bag or Louboutin shoes… in my case it has always been traveling. I don’t put much attention to expensive designer clothes, I always buy my cosmetics in a drug store, I don’t own a car, my rent is quite cheap, I buy my groceries at Aldi etc.. Overall, I’m a super economical person.
On top of that I am also very lucky having many friends around the world. Hence, I often only need to pay for flights. Being a travel blogger of course I also get invited by hotels sometimes. Hence, in that case I also only have to pay for the flights.
But even then there is a lot of hard work behind it! Because of course the hotels wanna see nice pictures and videos. Hence, even when I’m on “vacation” I often stay up until 3 o’clock writing blogposts, editing pictures or videos etc. And then waking up early again and hopfeully looking fresh in front of the camera 😛 Of course I love my “job” (it’s not my main job but a very time-consuming and fun side-job). But you can’t make something out of nothing!
Therefor, I can really recommend everyone to work hard towards reaching your goals and fight for your dreams! Even when it means starting with work at 5am and selling rolls 😛 I always enjoyed doing it because I knew why I did it 🙂
One often speaks about “luck” when good things happen in your life. I also see it that way and I’m extremely thankful when I get to experience such wonderful moments. However, I would rather say it is the “fortune of the hard-working” 😉 Because I believe that you can influence your luck up to some point. Hence work hard for your luck 🙂
