And 17 hours and 32 minutes to be exact but who’s counting right?
I was 8 years old and flicking through my baby book with my mother, when it came to a page titled ‘When I grow up I want to…’. Without hesitation, I ran to get a pen and began to write, in my childlike scrawl, ‘Travel the world and be a rockstar!’
Well, I’m now 27 and whilst I’m not a rockstar, to my utter disappointment, I am about to tick off that other childhood ambition of travelling the world!
So I packed in my teaching job, roped in a travel buddy (who didn’t need too much persuading) and booked the flights. No turning back now 😉.
With 25 days to go and my anxiety bubbling away, preparations are in full swing.
First on the list: travel tattoo ✔️The plan is to get all the continents filled in. 😃
Moving onto the daunting mission of condensing my 2 wardrobes, very large chest of drawers and 4 suitcases of clothes (too much clothes? Who me?) down to a 60l backpack has been difficult to say the least. However after 15 attempts and being brutal, I think I may have cracked it… Can you spot my favourite book and film series? 😉
We of course have a brief outline of things we’d like to see and do along our route. Speaking of our route:
- Thailand (island hopping)
If you have any hidden gems or must sees please let us know!
Must dash, just had the urge to see if I can squeeze that one extra dress into my rucksack…
