It’s coffee and chat time! Explore, Discover, Learn! I am a born traveller, with growing up in the Canary Islands to travelling Australia solo for a year to then working on-board cruise liners and living in South Africa. I have been very fortunate to have been able to see much of this beautiful world, but as every traveller knows, it’s never enough. Once the travel bug bites you, you will be on the hunt for your next destination for life.
When I met Gareth travelling, we decided to settle down in the UK. Don’t get me wrong, I love our apartment and I love living in Leeds, for me this city has it all – but sometimes I really feel like I could buy a van, deck it out with some boho vibes and just drive – never look back! Have you ever felt this way?
This world has so much to offer and I will never stop exploring it and seeking out new and exciting adventures. I vowed to Gareth that each year, we have to go somewhere new, somewhere we haven’t been before and cross it off our (long) list. If you didn’t know already, I have recently got married in Greece. Everyone has been asking if we’re having a honeymoon and the answer to that is 100% yes but I wish I could tell you where we’re going, but I don’t even know. Gareth is surprising me and it’s a place that neither one of us have been to before, I shall keep you posted on this!
I mention living in a van a lot and everyone asks me – do you mean a motor-home? Nope! I don’t. I just love the simplicity of a normal van that I can call home for a while. You might think I’m crazy and that’s ok, a lot of people do think this haha! But I’ve lived the hippie life before, granted it was just for 2 weeks in Australia but I had the best time. Showering on the beach, cooking from the van and not having a care in the world. Your only plan in life was getting from A to B. Obviously, you need to make money and if I won the lottery tomorrow this would definitely be my plan.
Although I’m very happy with city life right now and travel as and when I can, I’ll never say never to that hippie life dream. It may even only happen when I’m 60 plus, but I’ll be fine with that. If you’ve not travelled much yet but you’re desperate to, what are you waiting for? You only get one life, make sure you live it! Go and travel this world.
If you’re on Twitter – come on over and say hey.
