WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?

I was feeling a bit lost about the travel blogging scenario in Pakistan and was discouraged by all of all the barriers. I saw that Sidewalker Daily recommended Pangea as an answer to all my queries, and it surely was! I was excited to meet different bloggers from different parts of the world and how it was hosted by the women I followed religiously. Plus, I was so excited for all the awesome content I would be creating.

WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?

  1. It’s vital to love yourself

  2. Pick your own pace and set your own standards

  3. Women are the most awesome creatures on earth!

HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?

I feel more focused now, like I know where I’m headed. Real life examples stated by Carly and Lauren have helped me believe good things can happen for my blog too. I just have to put in the right work and attract the right things.

WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?

The amazing, beautiful, and kind-hearted women I got to meet and call my friends for the rest of my life. They made this trip so much more worth it!

DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?

I learnt how to take my own pictures from Lauren. I learnt how to support one another from Tracy. I learnt how to be a kick-ass Instagrammer and be happy & cheery from Carly. I learnt how to say I love you to myself from Deddeh. I learnt how to shoot, edit, and explore from Sam.


WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?

My favourite workshop was how to create a viral campaign, the art of self love, building a dedicated community on Instagram, hotel and brand collabs, and blog SEO 101.

IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO GIRLS CONSIDERING JOINING A RETREAT?

Do it!! You will be scared at first, excited next and then you will be happy forever! Pangea Dreams is worth every Penny!
