Episode 113. "I was incredibly romantic because all my ideas about working and becoming a professional and building my career, they were already a little bit torn apart by me quitting my first job.” ~Zselyke Kecskés
This episode is a love story, an old-fashioned romance with a quirky meet-cute, all filtered through the lens of decidedly modern challenges: WhatsApp courtship, COVID complications, and digital nomadship. It’s the stuff of Netflix dreams – with a dose of reality that only serves to make the story more relatable.
The heroine of this adventure, Zselyke Kecskés, is a multilingual digital marketing specialist for small business. Her decisions may appear scattershot on paper. Girl goes to a mountain meditation retreat. Girl meets boy. Girl and boy spend intense days together. Girl travels 30 hours to be with boy one week before starting a new job.
And that’s just where the story gets exciting! Listen closely.
As Zselyke’s journey progresses – from Hungary (the country of her birth) to Chicago (her current location) – the main drivers of her life become apparent and begin to make complete sense together.
Wanderlust and belonging are competing forces on paper. The push to get out vs the pull to settle down. And the two apply not only to travel but to jobs and relationships as well. But beyond the incredible travelogue that Zselyke’s story provides (especially in the time of pandemic-paused roaming), her life experiences are a reminder that the two work well in tandem if we allow ourselves the space to let them play out.
