I wanted to take a minute to write to you and give you a bit of an explanation for the obvious change in my blog (the name if you needed me to point it out haha!). Introducing: The Path Unbridled.
After deciding to rebrand this space earlier in the year, I felt unsure if my old blog name, “The Modern-Day Dreamer” still embodied the new direction I wanted to take. I contemplated this for several months and decided it was time for a fresh name. Sadly, this is one place that completely stumps me. Yeah, I’m terrible at naming things, to be honest. Thankfully the internet and my amazing sister offered some great input. To put this in perspective, I think my sister has named 99% of our family’s pets growing up. She got all the clever-naming genes.
The Path Unbridled encompasses everything I am going for in my blog. It feels perfect to me.
I fell in love with the word “unbridled” as I was going through a million equestrian terms. Not only does it contain a word relating to my favorite way to experience a place (on horseback, of course), but its meaning embodies what my blog is all about.
I want to see more animals in tourism with an unbridled freedom. Even better if they are in the wild. My mission for this blog is to increase awareness and inspire tourists to see animals in a responsible way.
I believe animals should be enjoyed AND treated with love and respect in tourism.
Combined with the term “path” it is a beautiful representation of what my vision is for the future in tourism. I foresee a new way of thought tourists will have for seeing animals and incorporating them into their travels. My hope is for a future where people will be intentional and conscientious about the animals’ well being, not just the selfie.
In short, I envision a path unbridled. Unrestrained. Uninhibited. Uncontainable.
Join me on this path, we’re headed somewhere beautiful, I just know it :)
