The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. – Eleanor Roosevelt
6 years ago, I stumbled upon this quote and it continues to resonate with me ever since. This quote is still on my Instagram profile. Like every other typical millennial, I have an insatiable appetite for travel, food and new experiences.
5 years ago, I created my first blog on WordPress with the goal of expressing my thoughts, sharing my experiences and improving my writing skills. Of course that failed along with multiple attempts afterwards, since I was just that lazy. One of the biggest roadblocks I faced was that, I often put too much thought into what I’m trying to say as I write. I’m not a good writer, but I want all my thoughts to be perfectly put into words.
Back in November of last year, I was in Japan. I had portable wifi, some downtime and a crazy idea – why not just blog on my phone? I always wanted to share my travels and leave some sort of footprint in the world; even if it’s a tiny one. I knew it wouldn’t work unless I just start typing and let the words pour out. To my surprise, this blog lasted 5 months without being deleted and ‘Explore with Kenneth’ now has 19 posts, been through 2 trips (Japan and LA) and followers that I greatly appreciate for following me through my adventures.
Moving forward, I’m thinking about bringing ‘Explore with Kenneth’ to it’s next chapter. It will continue to be active and I’ll be sharing my experiences even when I’m not travelling. I also have a couple of other ideas as well, but you’ll have to wait for those :). Thank you all so much for reading and I will always appreciate any thoughts and/or feedback.
