28 Reasons I’m Moving To A Tropical Island in 28 Days!??
Have you ever dreamed of moving to a tropical island to live? Yup, me too, and I’m about to do it!
Here are 28 reasons why I think it’s time to “live my island dream”!
- Selling everything I own to move to a Tropical Island when all my friends are (long) married and having (more) children, and I’m here still single, is exactly the kinda thing I would do.
- Bali, Land of the Gods, has around 20,000 temples and shrines that date back to ancient times – a place of worship for the Balinese. They attend these temples to pay their respect to the Gods and Spirits of their ancestors. I’m craving a spiritual awakening so bad right now, so Bali sounds like the perfect place to start.
- Have you seen how expensive coconut water is in Australia? I figure it’s just cheaper to move some place where I can drink them every day for next to nix.
- I love Adelaide, but it’s time to move on to the next adventure. It’s time for more personal growth, challenges and experiences.
- I’m more open to new relationships when abroad. Age, culture, creed, none of it seems to matter as much when you’re living outside your primary social structure. I seem to make the most wonderful connections with people of all ages and backgrounds when I travel. As the World’s #1 tourist destination, my culture cup will runneth over.
- The average temperature range in Bali is 26°C-28°C. I’m not a huge fan of Winter, at all. It crushes my spirit, dampens my soul, so I’ve decided to skip it for a couple of years.
- When people say, “I just wanna quit my job and move to a warm tropical island”, I can smile with complete understanding ?
- I get to wear Havaianas Every. Single. F*ckn. Day.
- I picked Bali out of a hat of Tropical Island destinations I most wanted to live in.
- I want to learn some fun swear words in a new exotic language.
- Adopting a pet coconut crab named Richard is high on my list of things to do.
- Fake tan is so expensive and hard work. Living in sunny paradise seems much more economical and easier!
- I like the idea of learning the name of every single person in one country. Katut. Wayan, Made, Nayoman … Done!
- Saving is easier than spending. I’m an avid saver as it is, but with lower cost of living than here in Australia, and my new philosophy of living a simpler life, and not needing to buy all the materialistic goods; and saving to contribute to more important causes that help others will be easier on a tropical island!
- The stunning natural beauty of Bali reduces stress and made me feel completely at peace and ease with self. It’s what floats my boat right now.
- Mountain trekking, snorkelling, surfing, amazing sunsets, white water rafting … the adventure junkie inside of me is already beside herself.
- Unlimited massages. ‘nuf said.
- The stories I will be able to share with the Grand-kids (ok, well at this rate, they might be someone else’s grand-kids and not mine, but hey), to say I’ve lived on one of the most amazing islands on the planet, seems worth it.
- I’m about to launch a new website (www.meganjayne.com.au) and blog and need inspiring material. This seemed like a great way to get some.
- My friends can’t put up with me talking their ears off about travelling anymore, so I’m leaving to find new people to annoy.
- My passport is looking a little neglected. It needs to be brightened up with a few more stamps.
- I finally get to use the lessons I’ve learned in overcoming many adversities to help others. It’s time to share my message. It’s time to make a difference.
- I’m “un-becoming”. I’m breaking my own rules of what I “should” be, how I “should” live, what success “should” look like. I’m un-becoming all the crap that I’ve told myself up until this point in my life and moving toward a more authentic, more aware self.
- Because my parents don’t think I should.
- On my way back to the airport during my New Year’s visit to Bali, my taxi driver (who confessed to being a medium/psychic) said to me, “Miss, you will meet your husband in Bali in one year time”.
Excuse me … best reason to sell my home and all my possessions, yet!
- Endless trips to Monkey Forest.
- Why move to a tropical island in less than a month? Because I can. Because I want to. Simple.
