Taking the Leap: My Journey Around the World

Shall I jump for taking risks? XD

Describe a risk you took that you do not regret.

There’s a Japanese proverb I remember from a manga I once read, which says that the regret of not doing something is worse than the regret of having done it. This has always resonated with me and, as such, I seldom regret the things I do.

However, if I were to discuss a particular instance in line with the topic at hand, it would be my decision to travel around the world. This was not an easy choice to make. I had to work two jobs for two years, saving every penny I could, to fund my adventure. Then, setting out westward from Japan, I embarked on a two-year journey around the world. During this time, I never returned to my homeland and I didn’t work. I was living on the edge, with risk always at my side.

But no matter what, I was determined to achieve what I set out to do. I believed that no matter what happened, I wouldn’t regret it. Fortunately, I was supported by many people I met during my journey, which helped me turn my dream into a reality.

Looking back now, I can’t help but think that if I had let fear of the risks stop me, that would have been my greatest regret.

Thank you for reading my story. This adventure was one that taught me the importance of embracing risks and the rewards that come with it.

      In retrospect, I’ve had my share of dangers. I’ve been asked for bribes by the police, been robbed, had my luggage fail to arrive on flights, among other things.

      Despite these challenges, I managed to finish my journey safely♪
      Thank you for your comment.

        Life is always an adventure 🙌

        I have had my luggage not arrive! That’s fun – but I always pack extra things in carry on just for that reason 👍

        Never been robbed or bribed 😮

        Glad you make through safely 😊👏✌️
