I’ve been very lucky to have parents that took me away on holiday every summer to loads of different places. However I still wouldn’t say I’m “well-travelled”, but I’d like to be. Most of those holidays were your classic sitting by the pool, being shoved off to Kids Club in the hope that mum and dad would get some relaxation time for at least a few hours (they didn’t; sorry mum, dad, I was never good at separation). A few of them, as I grew older, were more exciting. There was more exploring involved, and we even started going on snow sports holidays which was a nice change of pace.
Last summer I (last minute) went inter-railing through Europe with my friend from Uni. If anyone were to ask me what my greatest moment/achievement/experience of my life was, it would be that. I found my taste for travelling when I was there, and it really was a self-finding experience but on a more chilled level than you expect. It wasn’t as if I found a whole new me, but I definitely learned a lot and improved on myself because of it.
After that experience, I now want to visit so many more countries and places. So I made my travel bucket list! It will be forever growing no doubt, this is just the start of my journey, but I’d love to share a few of the places off my list that I hope to visit soon.
