Okay, so don’t judge too harshly. Don’t worry – I’m not one of those flashpacking types! Neither am I the sort of girl who would rather do one month of luxury travel instead of six months “slumming” it in various countries. Quite simply, no traveller has lived until they have spent a night in an Indian sleeper! All the same, I don’t enjoy calling people for the way they like to experience new things. At least they are getting out of England and seeing the world. If anything, I see their point of view. So, even with the nagging fear I’ll get excommunicated by the community, here’s my case for a bit of R&R.
As daunting as the idea of travelling alone may be – everyone should experience it at least once in their lives. You might think that you’d never have the confidence to set off out into the world alone, but once you’ve taken that first step, you’ll realise how much you control your own destiny.
There have been a lot of reports in the media about Ryanair splitting up passengers who do not pay for an upgrade. This is my recent experience.
I have flown Ryanair many times, and although I am ranting away about them, I will most likely fly with them again. Why? Because they are a budget airline and I am a budget traveller. I like cheap flights to great places. I love a great deal, and if you know how to handle them properly, Ryanair will give you just that . . .cheap flights.
So it seems a common thing for every travel blogger out there to round up their year with a post about where they have been that year. However, for me this was done in November which is when I celebrated a year of travel therefore I was left wondering what I could now say about my year of travel. Then as I was eating the leftover chocolates from Christmas, it occured to me! I have learnt so much in the past year of travel and there are so many things I want to tell you about. So I have decided to write this post about what travel has taught me giving examples of things that have happened in the last year.
On the 26th November 2016, I boarded a flight at Manchester Airport. On the 27th November, I landed in Seoul, South Korea. Today marks one year of travel and what a year of travel it has been! One year on and I am at home again. Not to stay but on a visit and to drop off my Camping Car after a summer in Europe before heading once again on a long haul flight.
I was asked by my sister-in-law if I ever got homesick. Well what you are going to read about my year of travel will make you understand why I don’t. With people all over the world welcoming me into their lives and making their house my home. How can I?
Travelling is an adventure in and of itself, but some explorers want a little more from their travels than sitting on a beach for the majority of their holiday. After all, if you work at a desk for 40 hours a week, it makes sense that your idea of a break from work is a chance to stretch your legs and move your body at least a few times while on holiday. So if you’re looking for a holiday where you can get in touch with your inner adrenaline junkie, here are a few things you should consider.
