Hello! I’m Yasmin and I’m glad you made it here. In case if you were wondering how to pronounce UURYA, let me enlighten you. It is pronounced you-ri-ya. Pretty neat I’d say. It is derived from my birth name, nURYAsmin. I added the extra letter “U” for the fun of it. The meaning of this astrological abbreviation UURYA, is truly an individual who is constantly moving and is always seeking new encounters – like me.
For many years, I’ve been toying with the much-glorified notion of being able to travel the world to open my mind and expose myself to the unknown and leap from the common comfort of what I’m used to. After years of slaving 8 to 10 hours in small cubicles, enduring non-adjustable low-temperature air conditioning, eating lunch at the same spot every day, and commuting in relentless traffic for hours, I finally left it all behind and started this blog in 2016.
I’ve always loved storytelling, traveling and sports. Its what inspired me to start this blog in the first place. As my blog evolves, it won’t just be a place for you to find inspiration or encouragement through travel and sports, but it will also be a place where you can seek advice or perhaps guidance to start living the life you want.
I’ll be sharing my knowledge and life lessons that I’ve learned in my quest to travel more while earning remotely. And in doing so, I’ll be as forthcoming as I can of the possible conflicts or struggles that I face.
