I want to write. And that is why I am here again, reintroducing myself in 2014, 3 years after I started this blog. Back then, I used this mainly as an avenue to find myself. It had no theme, no categories, no rules, no boundaries. It was meant to be a personal journal after all. From there, it molded itself into a travel blog. And it was a good ride, joining travel communities, exploring the country and nearby lands (the Philippines is a gem, by the way), taking upside down photos in every single island I set my foot on – all those things. I still get e-mails from people in other parts of the world complimenting my stories, photos and whatnot. It is them, actually, who inspired me to get my ass back here, trading sleep for a Great Perhaps.
And in this search for the Great Perhaps, I feel there is a need for a Great Shake Up. This blog. My perspective of the world. Life in general. We are going to break the walls we built around us in the past years. They are old after all (things get old so quickly these days). We are getting on a boat is what I’m saying, and we’ll push it to the sea, and we’ll see where it goes.
I guess we could say this is still a travel blog of some sort, although this time it’s more like a life travel blog. Or something. Hell, I really don’t know. And, perhaps, that’s the point.
“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you’re afraid of, going out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that, that’s what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s really special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”
Vida is a restless, universe-loving, forever-child with a very short attention span. She is mostly enthusiastic about travel, adventure, technology, fitness, and lately, life hacks. Most of her days are spent on tech partnerships in a telco, and most nights practicing capoeira (or yoga, or boxing, or trying some other unheard of art of movement). She likes experiments, little projects, and writes too, sometimes, at vidasioson.com. And if you're interested, sh... Hey, look, a flower!
