Posts Tagged ‘World Nomads’

Sometimes I know I’m delusional.. other times I like to believe that unrealistic dreams can come true. But for them to have any chance, you must take the first step.

For some it’s winning the lottery, losing weight, getting married, starting your own business .. for me.. it’s to travel the world on someone else’s money. Each of these requires a starting point.  Purchasing a ticket. Committing to a regime. Allowing yourself to be open to opportunities. Taking risks.  For me it’s a little bit of each of the last two.. being open to opportunities and taking risks.

So after putting myself out there to be critiqued by others (this blog does that) and opening myself and sharing my dreams..I put a wedge in the door on December 17th and submitted my entry in World Nomads 2012 Travel Photography Scholarship.. the prize… a trip to Oman with the opportunity to work alongside Australia’s own and world reknown photographer, Jason Edwards – How could I NOT enter..

Competition has now officially closed… which means that my entry in the World Nomads / Rough Guide travel writing Scholarship competition is OFFICIALLY entered.  eeek!!!

I’ve always dreamed of being a writer that people respond to and enjoy.. but secretly I’ve also been too afraid to put myself out there for judgement (just another one of my quirks!)…

I don’t expect to win.

Simply remembering a simple moment, a simple joy of one sunny morning amongst the Hill Tribes of Sa Pa and putting it into words for others outside of my immediate circle felt/feels amazing!.

I hope you enjoy..
