My Travel Story

by: Anya Poznysheva Start Date: Mar 11, 2016 - End Date: Mar 10, 2017
The traditional lifestyle isn’t for everyone. Many people want to go to university, spend years studying, then get their dream job and spend the rest of their life following the same boring routine and making lots of money, all of that just to buy things that they think it will make them happy.
But that is completely different from what I want, achieving happiness is simpler for me, i don't want to make my happiness out of the things i can buy, but out of experiences and friendship.
I am Anya, i am 16 years old and i live in Vancouver. Here i go against the mainstream, almost everyone around me has plans to go to university and keeps asking me where i’m planning to apply to, but my answer is...nowhere. I don’t want to waste ten years of my life studying to prepare myself for a job i won’t want to do in a society i’ll never fit into. Instead, I want to go to Brazil, where i have a friend that shares the same vision i have about the world, and we are planning to travel all around the world without ever having to live ‘normally’. But for all this to happen, I first need to get to Brazil and to do that, i will need some money from you, kind people.
