The Travel Bug

Once upon a time the thought of putting on a pair of walking boots, grabbing a backpack and venturing off into the unknown was something that I would have absolutely hated, plus at that time I’d never owned a backpack and certainly would not have been seen in a pair of hiking boots! In fact the thought of travelling anywhere but to a 5 star all inclusive resort never even crossed my mind at all.

But times have changed, and I mean really changed because in this past year I have been bitten by the travel bug and all I want to do is see the world. I want to feel the sand between my toes and snowflakes on my cheeks, I want to learn new things and watch the sun rise and set on different continents.

I absolutely LOVE the fact that people have this misconception about me, and I find it quite funny when I talk like this, and often get the whole “You wouldn’t last 5 minutes backpacking” Or “I can’t see you staying in a hostel” It’s funny really how other people believe they know you better than you know yourself.

True, I love the nicer things in life, nice holidays, nice jewellery, designer bags, and nice hotels, but since meeting Luke I’ve definitely broadened my horizons and my mindset has changed, and I would absolutely LOVE to get a backpack and see the world!

That is probably a regret of mine, not travelling before settling down and having a mortgage, a house, not to mention a full time job, and now a puppy!!

Instead I will have to be content with booking nice holidays, and fitting in as many breaks as I possibly can – at least that way I get to stay in nice hotels, every cloud really does have a silver lining!

If you haven’t managed to check it out already, here’s the link ➡️ to my travel destination list, I have so far ticked of Seychelles and New York, I’m now wondering where I can tick off this year.

What’s on your travel/bucket list? I’m looking to add to mine, and so far have added Cuba and the Galápagos Islands!

  1. I have the traveling bug too. I just want to see EVERYWHERE.

    Seychelles would be incredible! Right now the man and I have a goal of spending one night in every state eventually. We only have 6 ticked off but we are heading to Arizona next week… so almost 7. I’m sure we’ll meet the goal when we are 80!

    1. Well with all the travel bans we might have to up it to 85 😩😂 what a nightmare everything is right now. Hope you are keeping well xx
