My Freedom Story: Sabrina of Just One Way Ticket

Thursday, October 09, 2014

Freedom can come in many forms- the freedom to travel, to work anywhere in the world or simply the freedom to be. The cost of freedom can come in many forms as well. That's true in the case of Sabrina of Just One Way Ticket, who has worked as a freelance graphic & screen designer, tour guide, German teacher, babysitter, photographer, author and a few more she dare not mention. Here's her story:

What's your version of freedom?

Doing what you love. Every day. Uhm... and sleeping in.

Share your back story.

I used to work as a screen designer but in the end I just realized that woking full time was not my cup of tea. I started traveling long term in 2008, not knowing that this was the beginning of a new life. After 14 months on the road I knew that I wanted to travel for the rest of my life. I never returned to my old routine. Instead I developed new skills on the road. First I worked online teaching languages, later I started my travel blog My blog picked up after a couple of months, luckily nowadays, I earn enough from blogging to continue my travel lifestyle.

What steps did you take to achieve freedom?

It's all about priorities. Freedom was traveling for me, so traveling became my first priority. I worked double shifts, saved money, quit my job, rented out my apartment, got a new passport and left my country with an open mind. Actually I've written a blog post about that, the post even won an award for inspiration. You can read it here: 8 Steps to Freedom - How I quit my job and traveled the world

How long did it take for you to live free?

Freedom is a state of mind.

What was the biggest challenge you've faced?

Building an online business and not earning any money in the first months. It was tough but it taught me how to live on a very small budget which was actually not bad at all. I actually enjoyed.

  1. I can relate to that! I also left my job. I became an international model so I could travel the world. I travel the world since I'm 12 with my grandmother. And now I do it by myself! I feel so much better. I felt trapped before. Now I'm happy and I encourage everyone to do what they love.
