My name is Akea Brown, and I am 25 years old. I am new to the travel blogging community and have desired to travel for a long time. My desire to travel began when I was in college. At the time, I was suffering from depression and a lot of changes took place in my life that I had no control over. I would constantly seek God and get lost in books, nature, and movies like Eat Pray Love (yes I know its cliché) to help keep my sanity. It was during that time that I began to really soul search and ask myself all of life’s deep and pressing questions. Since then, I have grown a lot as a person and have developed a passion for life.
Like many, I had a timeline set for myself……you know the usual “go to college, graduate, go to law school, graduate, get married, have kids, and so on.” But God had others plans and mine didn’t go as planned. Actually, I graduated college in 2012 and have been working in the corporate world since then. It sounds bad but in hindsight I am glad things happened the way they did because now I have matured spiritually and my perspective of life has improved tremendously with the help of my church family. I no longer have a timeline for where I should be at this point in my life and I am more open to God’s plan. While I am still working towards law school, I made a decision to enjoy life NOW before I am forced to work like a Hebrew slave. Sorry, I can have a weird sense of humor sometimes. 🙂
So I created a bucket list and set a goal to start living out that list even if it starts off as one trip a year or in my own country. I created this blog to give more details about what traveling means to me (from a beginner’s standpoint), how I developed a passion for it, to document my adventures, and to share daily revelations God teaches me. Through my travels and adventures, I hope to take my experiences with God to another level and to become a well-rounded person. So here it goes!
