From date nights in Paris, Rome and Dubai to partying in Greece with the girls, I can say I have always been passionate when it comes to travel.
For me, I think travel broadens the mind and gives you perspective. I have been on family beach holidays around Europe all of my life, and I am very grateful for those experiences, but as I grew older I wanted something more. I want to immerse myself in new culture, I want to find little caves in the middle of nowhere, eat local street food, ride in the back of a tuk tuk and see views from the top of the highest mountains. I want to be a traveller not a tourist. I have the wanderlust bug, the type that has you itching to get away again and again.
People my age are settling down and having children. And thats fine. But it’s not me. Not yet anyway. I feel I have so much more to do and see in life than be tied down to a mortgage or worrying about silly things that I can worry about when I’m 60 years old. I used to think to myself ‘what is wrong with me, why can’t I be normal like most people, get a house and a dog and live my life the way its supposed to go’ but actually.. What is normal? How is life supposed to go? Are there actually any rules or are we just copying each other because we are scared to be different? I have plenty of time to do those things and will be ready once I have seen more of the world we live in, sharing experiences with my children to inspire them to chase whatever dreams they have. Because at the end of it, we all die anyway. So I’m going to just live the life I want.
2016 was the year I learnt to ski in Megève. I also visited Geneva, Budapest, Dublin, Ibiza New York and Boston Massachusetts.
Places I have visited that you’ll be able to read about soon:
- AMSTERDAM (THE NETHERLANDS)
- BILBAO (SPAIN)
- BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS
- BUDAPEST (HUNGARY)
- GENEVA (SWITZERLAND)
- MEGEVE (FRANCE)
- NEW YORK

How many places have you seen? Even better, why don’t you find out the percentage of countries you have visited by clicking here. I found this website really interesting as although I feel I have travelled to a lot of places, it only calculates to 20.83% of Europe and 4.76% of the Middle East! This just makes me want to book and see more countries in the world.
