I always was one of those who people who have had itchy feet. I just can’t help it. I can’t sit still. There is something about travelling that just seems so perfect to me. I love the feeling of the unknown and the fact that being on some of form of transport for just a couple of hours can lead to a whole new world. Travel means adventure and growing up as a bookworm meant that as soon I was old enough, I wanted to go and see the world and see all the things I had read about for myself.
Travelling for the first time without my parents to Normandy in France, I remember being terrified and feeling rather homesick at the same time. However as the ferry crossed the rocky waters to the French coast, I started to feel more and more comfortable. Growing up as I travelled more, the fear of travelling started to fade and the fear of being in a hotel room by myself started to disappear. I started to enjoy the moments when I was walking along in a country all on my own and I could just take in the foreign food, culture and language and marvel at the feeling I had in the pit of my stomach, my dreams were finally coming true.
Since then, I have never looked back. I embrace opportunities to travel, whether this around London, Europe or around the world, I treasure every chance. I love travelling so much and I can’t wait to see what the next year holds when it comes to being far away in an unknown land.
Happy World Tourism Day! I hope you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to give my blog a follow if you did,
