Hi virtual world!
My name’s Laura. I’m 21 and a half (or as some would like to say-12) years old. In January of 2017 I quit real life. Yes, that sentence is ridiculous but I don’t know how else to word it. I was studying a prestigious difficult field (geophysics), surrounded by friends and love, had an incredible job-but wasn’t quite happy. So I did what any rational person would do, I dropped out of school, quit my job and bought plane tickets to Southeast Asia. I am absolutely fascinated by happiness-why some of us have it and why others do not. What actually makes us innately happy as humans at our route. That’s why I’ve embarked on this trip, to discover what truly makes us happy and pursue it at all costs. My dream is to travel the world, discovering the ‘route’ of happiness (punny-I know). From nomads, rural communities, big cities, tribes-I want to really see it all and discover what are genuine causes of lasting bliss. So-welcome to my journey. I can’t wait to share what I’m learning with you.
