AUTHOR - MENTOR - WANDERLUSTER
I am a huge believer in synchronicity and the part it plays in our life journey. Hence I have a few stories to tell about how I have ended up living such an eclectic life with multiple passions in my late-50's.
My mission is to empower others to reach beyond their perceived limitations and live outside of the box.
Plus, I have a story (or two) to share...
Paula Johnson lives an unconventional life based in Tauranga, New Zealand.
Born an adventurous spirit - always seeking, exploring, creating and dreaming through her vivid imagination as a child, she's carried these traits into adulthood. Currently a website designer, crazy cat lady house sitter, and author, she has also embarked on the journey of Memoir Mentor!
Paula believes synchronicity's are nudges from the Universe, and if we are open to feeling them (intuition) and then following them with our heart (our head will stop us) life can be an amazing unfoldment of opportunities and experiences - that's certainly how she's been living her life for the past three decades!
Wanderlust: A strong desire or impulse to travel & explore the world
I was 31 before I left my home shores of New Zealand on my first experience of overseas travel. Travelling alone, I did three Contiki tours, encompassing 5 weeks around Europe, 10 days in Britain and Southern Ireland, a week in Egypt and 3 days in Canada. This was more than enough to have the travel bug burrow its way deep into my soul.
There was a large gap of 15-odd years in which I only managed to get to nearby Australia for a couple of holiday's. Then things got really interesting when I had the opportunity to accompany a friend to Vietnam, Cambodia and Bali on a 7 week whirlwind trip.
Needless to say those 7 weeks opened my eyes, my heart and my soul to even greater depths of experience which changed my life forever which you can read about in my memoir Silent Warrior - Transformation.
Travel feeds my soul like nothing else. To experience that gorgeous feeling of waking up somewhere new and unknown; exploring new cultures and landscapes; developing wonderful connections and lasting friendships with people from all walks of life; for me, this is one of life's greatest treasures.
