Who Am I?
Thanks for stopping by. My name is the Lady “M”, or The Tea Time Adventurer. Does that sounds like a strange name to you? Don’t worry a lot of my friends and family think so too. It all has to do with a crazy idea I had while in London!
Since graduating from college, I have been known as the crazy know-it-all lady who who always talks about travel, sports, and fashion. I am also a workaholic. As much as I wanted to travel like my friends and seemingly everybody I followed on social media, it was not a realistic priority for me. There would be plenty of time for that later. I was more concerned about getting a well paying job, saving money and setting myself up for the future.
Fast forward 10 years; I didn’t like the person I had become. As cliché as it sounds, when tidying up one day, I rediscovered a list I had created in college. It both saddened and angered me to see that virtually nothing had been accomplished. What was I working for?
Reevaluating My Priorities
I was tired of always being cautious and worried about money. I needed to rekindle the hopeful, adventurous spirit I had harbored as a student.
After taking a long look at what I wanted at this point in my life, I changed careers and started to travel. In 2018, I made it to Greece and the U.K.
My secret was to find a new work-life balance and find a job that I didn’t feel ‘stuck’ in. Life, after all, is not just a money and numbers game.
So Why Tea Time Adventurer?
I had wanted to blog for so long about my mistakes, and knowledge I’ve gained over the years working in the hospitality and aviation industries. I kept making excuses as to why I couldn’t do it in place of standing my ground and going for it.
While drinking tea at Kensington Palace in London, I made the executive decision that this would be the trip to start writing about. I pulled out a notebook and began planning out possible ideas for what my blog could include and my first posts I could breath life into.
When I came home, I bought my domain, came up with the design, and slowly starting putting together this website. It seemed fitting that I would be thinking about never ending adventures during tea time.
So What’s Ahead?
As the blog continues to grow and develop over the years, I will too. I don’t know what’s in store. That’s what makes it exciting. The possibilities of life are endless. Discover and always dare to dream.
