I’m a huge fan of travel themed jewellery, especially the friendship style bracelets. Because I’m very active, I find that typical chain jewellery just doesn’t last, the chain breaks and then I end up losing them. I recently walked by an expensive jewellery shop in Greece and the store assistant was like “you need jewellery to remember your trip!” And I was like errrr got anything made out of string?!? So when I was recently contacted by ‘Life Less Ordinary’ to advertise their coordinates bracelet, I jumped at the chance!
When it comes to blogging and travel writing, it seems to be a big thing that people don’t want to talk about the bad experiences, everything has to be about how wonderful travel is, you HAVE to visit here etc etc. But in reality it’s not always the case, you’re not going to love EVERYWHERE that you travel. Now I don’t want to be mean, there are many different things that can affect a visit, but first impressions are first impressions and in this post I share 5 disappointing travel destinations from around the world.
After travelling to 40+ countries, I’m often asked where my favourite place in the world is. I find it hard to give just ONE place, my usual answer is ‘I liked here, here, here, here OH and here’! But it’s time to try and put them in an order once and for all…although I can guarantee that it’ll probably change with new adventures, but for now, here are my top 10 world-wide destinations!
I’ve become obsessed with sand dunes. They are one of my favourite types of landscape and I find it hard to put into words why. Sand dunes are often in quite hostile environments, being in places that are very hot and offer little or no shade. They are exhausting if you try and climb them and have the power to make you feel so tiny. They create huge ‘mountains’ which is crazy when you think that they are literally just piles and piles of loose sand with no solid centres. Yet they are beautiful and FUN. I collaborated with some other travel bloggers and compiled a collection of different sand dunes around the world!
It wasn’t until I really sat down and thought about it, that it occurred to me just how emotional airports can be. Just think about experiences that you might have had. I know that I personally must have experienced what feels like every emotion on the spectrum! It fascinates me to sit at an airport and wonder where people are coming from or going to and what their stories are and now I’m going to share with you some of mine!
Since I became an ‘immigrant’, I was intrigued to find out if any of my ancestors had emigrated/come from anywhere other than Great Britain…has travel always been in my blood…literally!! Ancestry DNA recently had a sale so it seemed like the perfect time to find out!
It’s been 17 YEARS since I first travelled overseas! I’m 1 country away from setting foot on 40 different countries worldwide and today I thought I’d share some of my travel mishap memories! It’s a known fact that travel isn’t always glamorous, but you know what, even during the minor inconveniences I wouldn’t change my travels for anything! Everything in this list helped me grow or challenged me in some way. Things can happen when you travel in your home country too not just when you’re overseas. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it!
