Charlotte from @charlies_wanderings shares her experience of the Bali retreat in March 2018!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?
I especially loved the idea of a girl community. So far I had never truly experienced that so it got me very curious.
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
I especially gained a lot of confidence in regards to what I am able to accomplish by myself. I learned how to take photos in manual mode without messing everything up, learned new tricks in Lightroom, learned new ways to pose from the other girls on the retreat and learned that sometimes it is okay to turn down an offer cause it’s important to stick to what you stand for!
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
It changed so much it’s insane! I went on several crazy trips with @goalsbykate who I met on the retreat and we are gonna keep on travelling together. Before I never really got what I needed out of a holiday but meeting likeminded people like on the PangeaDreams retreat truly changed that! I found my buddy to go sunrise and sunset chasing with!
WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?
Definitely the hike up to Mount Batur!
DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?
It did! Don’t expect for your life or Instagram to magically change, it will still take a lot of work and dedication and most importantly time! But at least now you’re not alone and you have your mentors to ask questions to. Ever since the retreat I have been working twice as hard and try to implement everything that I learned in what I do and post.
WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVOURITE AND WHY?
I loved the one about contacting brands and hotels and would have loved to learn even more about it! I am currently enrolled in a course on how to monetise your Instagram to have a passive income.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO GIRLS CONSIDERING JOINING A RETREAT?
Do it!!!!! I have learned so much in that one week and I met my travel soulmate. Don’t let nerves hold you back! Being scared means you are on the verge of making the right decision!
