Now that the silly season is over, and the new year has begun, the time to start holiday planning is upon us!
Around this time last year, I decided to bite the bullet and embark on the adventure I had been dreaming about for as far back as I could remember! - I was excited, scared, hopeful and anxious. I wanted to see as much as I possibly could in a short-ish period of time, meet new people and learn about cultures that were completely different to mine. I wanted to visit new cities and stand in the exact same places that people who molded life as we know it, had stood before me and I wanted to eat local dishes that were rich in strong, authentic flavours.
The morning I decided that I was going to do this, I must tell you, it...
After one whole week of being back in the country FINALLY my brain is working again and it’s time for me to do a holiday re-cap.
Truthfully going overseas to me was scary. So many people brushed it off like I was being precious or over-exaggerating when I said it, but for me it truly was.
I was scared because help wasn’t a phone call away and if anything should happen, my lifelines were going to be on the other side of the world. I was nervous because for so long I’d been working towards this and I didn’t know what to expect or how it would all play out - all of this might I add was my anxiety.
So in true me form, I decided to do a big project plan. Before I left I decided that I would build an entire file around each city...
Well guys the day I’ve been working towards for seven whole years has finally arrived - I AM OUT OF HERE ️ but before I depart I want to share a little story with you to kind of explain why this day is such a significant milestone for me.
Like everyone my life has been filled with many ups and downs, but if you had told me five years ago that I’d be standing here today at the international airport about to fly to London by myself, I would have told you that you were crazy and there’s no way I would ever be able to do something like that!!
Five years ago almost to the day I went to my grandmothers house to spend some time with her, which I truly did make the effort to do at least twice a week.
