Perhaps the better question to ask is “What is a trouvaille?” According to Oxford dictionary, it’s “a lucky find.”
We all have those fortunate findings, whether it’s a physical object or a life revelation, when we travel.
The purpose of this blog is to encourage you to move beyond your comfort zone and explore new places, whether it’s trying a different bus route within your own city or traveling to the other side of the world. Along the way, you’ll hopefully come across a trouvaille of your own.
My name is Kylie West, and I’m the author of this blog. Over the past few months I’ve struggled with the idea that my life isn’t quite where I hoped it would be. Shortly after finishing university, I was lamenting that most of my hopes for the year hadn’t worked out. It was around September 2016 that I shut down these thoughts and told myself to take action and make the most of my life, recognizing how blessed I am. I changed my mindset, began saving money, and started embracing my weekends by taking quick trips. I viewed it as a challenge:
How can I take FULL advantage of the weekend? How can I make the most of those two precious days?
Let me tell you, I’m doing it, and I’m proud of it. Here’s my adventure blog, my passion project that I’ve been working on for quite some time. Someday, it will be something much bigger than a simple weekender blog…someday soon, I dream of living outside of the 8-to-5 grind. Until that day comes, check out the posts of a true weekend warrior…my goal is for you to be inspired to live life to the fullest in your free time, too.
