About Me

Welcome to Go With Geets!

Hiya! So you’d like to know a bit about me hey? I’m flattered! Here it goes then… My name is Geeta and I recently got married, quit my job and am currently travelling through Portugal. Sounds intense I know, but it wasn’t quite as drastic as it sounds, trust me.

Let’s start from the beginning…

I’m a 28 year old fashion graduate who’s always loved traveling and exploring new places. Last summer I married the guy of my dreams (Fabio Virgi). Cheesy? I know…

By profession Fab is a self employed Marketing Consultant and Travel/Tech blogger. After marriage I constantly found Fab having to schedule his life around me and my busy work routine. Enjoying the “traditional married life scenarios” together sounded like a dream, and travelling, what travelling? Free time was a blur in my daily routine and tiredness became a norm.

Enough was enough and it was just before Christmas 2016 that I finally decided I didn’t want to continue living with everything I desired so far away in the distance, so… I quit my job! Nothing lined up but the option to explore Portugal with the one I love was right there in front of me.

What happened next…

Being an “independent woman” the thought of making such a drastic lifestyle change was going to be daunting. Not knowing the language and having to be supported was not the ideal plan I had in mind but hey, the idea of having my cake and eating it too sounded even more appealing.

What do I mean? Spending time in my marriage and exploring a whole new country without the initial fears of any financial burdens, I’d be crazy not to accept! Fab’s career choice was definitely accommodating for this situation and let’s be real, I’d have to learn the language sooner or later. Inevitable side effects of marrying a Portuguese guy, lol…

Where am I now…

So as you can see I grabbed the opportunity with both hands which brings me out here in Portugal — Sines to be precise. A small city along the coast of Portugal living in my in laws apartment, just me and Fab. With a New Years resolution of nothing else but be inspired by new places and explore a whole new world around me.

That said, my blog will follow my journey through living life the unconventional way. Hopefully encourage you all to live the way you’d like and inspire you to explore a world beyond your own back yard. There’s so much to see in the world and I want to see and share as much of it as I can. At the end of the day life is all about making memories…
