There Are So Many Thing's to See in the World!

In today’s LEGEND LIFE STORY interview I will be sharing my interview with Kim Wilkin. Kim is the person behind the blog and youtube channels The Abundant Traveler.

After her first stint of traveling which saw her living in Europe for 5 years after University Kim has continued to travel as often as possible, focusing on food and wine and day adventures with a bit more luxury. She still considers Europe her second home, and is building a life where she can live part of the year in Austin, and part of the year on The Mediterranean.

She is passionate about traveling, and eats up the exotic, 2nd & 3rd world countries. She has visited more than 63 countries on 6 continents with her favorite countries to date being Botswana, Vietnam and Nepal. Next on her bucket list are Namibia and Colombia.

As a blogger she is focused on sharing her stories to inspire women especially those over 40 to travel the world, see new cultures, dance in the streets, trek through unknown territories, lounge in luxurious locations, and experience the exotic.

In our interview we talk about what are some of her favorite destinations, her most memorable travel experience, her most adventurous and what is still on her bucket list or she prefers to call a wish list.

We also talk about why she thinks everyone should go traveling, what to do if your are feeling unfulfilled by your current life, what living a legendary life, her best life means to her, her advice to other’s over 40 who may be viewing turning 40 negatively and three life lessons she has learned in life.

I hope you are as inspired by Kim’s story as I was. You can learn more about Kim by going to her website, Facebook  and Instagram .
