Finding contentment in a new place

Uh oh, it's going to be one of those centre aligned days...

I feel so bloody content right now with life that I could burst! I had that moment the other day when I was sat in my new apartment with the breeze coming in and having my new laptop and Kenya internet connection working and some music from the street playing and I was just like 'Yep, this is going to be fine'

It took a loooooooong time to decide to leave my comfort zone. I then had a long notice period where it was easy to forget that I would soon be leaving the magic circle of comfort and heading to Kenya. 

Leaving home was the worst part, I almost clung onto my sofa shrieking 'Nooooooooo! I like my life, why am I changing it??!!' but once I left the house and started the long journey to Kenya, nothing was going to stop me being here.

I went from a crowded train to Manchester Airport...

To getting a motorbike taxi across Mombasa for around £1...

 In conclusion: Leave your comfort zone and find a new level of comfort in new places and you'll be surprised at how much fun it can be!

  1. Hey Katie! How are you? Looks like you're having an amaaazing time! I'm very envious. It's bloody freezing in Korea now and I'm longing for the summer :( Currently planning a trip around South-East Asia at the end of this excited! I hope you don't mind me asking, but how did you get your job at i-to-i? I think I'll be moving back to England at the end of my contract here and would love to get involved with TEFL over there somehow!
