My name is Nancy and I’m living my dream of perpetual travel, just for a year. I’ve convinced my love to come with me too
As a child of immigrant parents who risked their lives to come to Canada, it is important to me that their sacrifices were worth something. Growing up, my parents only had one dream, and that was for me to go to a good school and have a respectable career. Every generation should live better than the last. It would have been a slap in their face for the hardships they endured if I didn’t live to my potential.
For most of my life, turning their dreams into a reality was my only goal. Their dream became my dream. Financial stability was all that mattered.
By working hard and living below my means, I was able to achieve that goal. The journey was long, and the self-discipline was tough, but that moment when I reached my dream was such a rewarding feeling.
Once I got to that destination, I forgot to recalibrate. When you spend your entire life on one priority, it’s easy to forget that you can have others.
This is the reason why I am devoting one year to pursuing my dream. I call it my one life changing year because I’ll come back with a wider perspective and a nourished soul.
Where am I going?
Travelling, just for a year. I’ve quit my job, sold my stuff, and convinced my love to come with me on this journey as we travel around the world. We won’t have a physical place to call our own, as home will exist only in our hearts.
I’m glad that you are here

What does enSquaredAired mean, and how do I pronounce it/spell it/get rid of these big question marks in my head?
Let me break it down to you. en-squared-aired is a play on words. My initials are NN (hence, “N” squared). Because I love to dream, adding in “aired” made perfect sense.
I know, it’s confusing. I did not realize this name would be so hard to spell and say, but it’s too late now!
