this inspiring post at the gorgeous The Bottom of the Ironing Basket it has made me want to share my own thoughts on travelling (sorry house don’t be jealous it can’t be about you all the time!).
I swear by the motto The World Is A Book And Those That Don’t Travel Read Only A Page. Thanks to my parents who took my brother and I around the world for 6 months when I was the impressionable age of 18 I got a taste for travelling that I may not have otherwise taken an interest in. Although I couldn’t even drink in some countries (not that that stopped me!) I was old enough to catch the travelling bug and knew that if I wanted to go back to the places I loved and explore new places I’d have to work hard, save harder and then just DO IT!
Years after that trip I picked up the book 1000 Places To See Before You Die and decided then and there to make my list and plan a trip each year some big overseas and some small interstate, solo and with friends, anything just to pack my bag and go off on an adventure. Travelling is so exhilarating. Memories like New Years in a different country. Being in Rio de Janeiro for Carnival. Driving thousands of miles across Australia. Eating seafood daily in Tasmania. Living a childhood dream and visiting theme parks with my brother in Queensland. Cruising the seas onboard the Oriana, Superstar Virgo and Sun Princess being treated to 5 star luxury 24/7. The latest, indulging in fresh figs every morning in Ibiza picked fresh from the tree. It's all the little moments that makes your trip memorable and there's a big wide world out there waiting for someone like YOU to check it out!Pin It Now!
