Looking back on an incredible 2015 – My BEST year yet

 In Reflections
This time last year I was mid way backpacking through Australia, celebrating the coming of 2015 at The Falls festival in Byron Bay. 
I remember sitting on the sunshine laden grass hill looking over the circus tents and glitter covered festival goers and thinking to myself, what do i want from 2015?
My answer? To be happy – really happy. From the bottom of my heart kinda happy.

After spending my college years deteriorating under the pressure of my perfectionist nature, I had finally found freedom through travel, and in that happiness. 
2015’s challenge was to maintain that feeling.
I remember posting a photo on Instagram quoting ‘In 2015 I want to travel more’, which i also remember thinking was absolutely ridiculous and rather ambitious.
But here I am at the end of 2015 having had a year beyond my wildest dreams. In the last 12 months I have boarded 21 flights and explored 12 countries, 13 including Copenhagen in which I landed today, over 81 days.
I have worked with some incredible brands during this time including: GoPro, STA Travel, AirBnb & Contiki, all of whom felt a distant dream at the beginning of the year.
I have created 18 YouTube Guides racking up over 161,000 views, and reaching 50,000 followers across my social media.
To think I hadn’t even thought to pursue a travel blog this time last year is crazy and shows what hard work and passion can do if you channel your energies correctly.

‘If you can’t find your purpose, 
follow your passion. 
For through your passion
you will find your purpose’

The growth of my brand this year has been steady, frustrating at times but I knew from the beginning that the blogging world is a very unpredictable one.

This held true when, in October, I linked into my hotel wifi in Jasper and was bombarded with messages, emails, Facebook notifications and Instagram followers.
I had been featured in The Daily Mail Online (view article here) The Metro Online (view article here) Elite Daily (view article here) The Daily Star Physical Paper and subsequently numerous newspapers and online publications all over the world including Stuff NZ (view article here).
My page views and followers doubles in the space of 48 hours and finally my hard work started paying off. 

A feeling I cannot even put into words.
Even so, you can lose followers quicker than you gain them, so there was no complacency in the exposure i had experienced, only motivation to work harder.
Now, going into 2016, I have honestly never ever felt in as strong a place than I do now – emotionally, physically and in my career.
I am surrounded by the most inspiring, beautiful bunch of people and I have made incredible friendships all over the world.
‘Take responsibility for everyone 
and everything in your life right now, 
for the energy you’ve radiated 
has attracted alike energy’
In 2015, I maintained that happiness.

I feel contentment that I’ve never before experienced.

Travelling has shown me whats important in life. 

It puts life and decisions into perspective for me and this earth continues to amaze and inspire me.
I want to thank every single one of you that read my blog for your support and for joining me on my adventures. I hope I have inspired to have some of your own and I hope I continue to do so.
And to everyone I have been blessed to meet and share these incredible experiences with – i have love for you beyond words.
Mollie xxxx
