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.
I’ve always loved traveling, sports and telling stories about them.
The problem was, I was working long tiresome hours for someone else’s goal. I was pouring my heart and soul into something I didn’t love and wasn’t spending enough time to find what I really love doing.
Although I travelled once in a blue moon while being fully employed, I was merely travelling to run away from the office. Today I travel to understand different cultures, eat authentic local food, kayak on the wildest seas – all on my own terms. No rush, just slow travel.
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.
At the end of the day, this blog is really about my quest to living a fulfilling life. It may be my ideal way of living but it’s okay if it’s not yours. Everyone is welcome here.
