This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. It is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

Sir Winston Churchill.

This quote resonated with me because I've just ended a massive chapter in my life - but it's certainly not the end. 

My 25th birthday marked a significant turning point for me because it was when I realised I was chasing a career that I didn't want, in a city that I didn't like. When I started university in 2011, I didn't really know what I wanted to do, but law seemed like a smart choice, plus I always love a challenge. After finishing my last exam I boarded a plane to London to meet my twin sister who'd moved there 6 months prior. London was where I was going to make it big - I was going to be a lawyer in a top London firm, earn loads, travel Europe and be super happy. But it turns out working 12-hour days in a high-pressure job and eating dinner at my desk every night didn't me happy.

I spent three years hoping my life in London would get better, but life is too short to wake up dreading work every day. So I gave myself an epic 25th birthday present: I allowed myself to resign and leave London. So I'm in search of my next chapter - something new, something that'll make me happy.

Through Daina writes I hope to document my travels, share useful travel tips, develop my writing portfolio and to inspire others to get out do what makes them happy.
