Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known -Astronomer Carl Sagan
Travelling the world and experiencing new places has always been a dream of mine. As I sat waiting in an airport lounge earlier this year, I promised myself that I would make a conscious effort to travel more. To visit amazing, new places and not just the tried-and-tested holiday spots. Unfortunately for a single, something-twenties girl with an overprotective family, this is easier said than done.
I come from a very strong culture of ‘Saving‘ where trips around the world are considered frivolous expenses. Thankfully, that attitude is slowly changing (albeit at a more glacial speed than I would like). So I decided to get smart and figure out some travel options that my family would approve of. I didn’t have to worry though. While I was ruminating, the Universe was conspiring.
A few weeks after I made this big decision, the perfect travel opportunity fell into my lap. Some family members were travelling abroad and invited me to tag along. Plans were impulsively made and details sketched out. Now, in less than seven days, I will get on a plane to Bangkok and I couldn’t be more ecstatic.
My stomach is currently a perfect cocktail of emotions and I’m loving every second of it.
Buon viaggio a me 🙂

Do you have any trips or vacations planned that you’re really excited for? Or is there something that you would like to cross off your bucket list this year?
