The title of this post sums up my feelings pretty well. Because, once upon a time I was too scared to travel the length and breadth of the country. Now I could hardly recognise the girl before, because travel consumes my every thought and not a day passes without a burning desire to visit a beautiful city, island, Temple or taste a different culture.
|Phuket - Swimming in the ocean is one of my most treasured and sacred joys.|
I yearn for Thailand and its beauty, I dream of unlocking Fiji once more (this one will be saved for when the time is right), I ache to explore the unknown, ticking off continents, countries and mapping my heart around the world and collecting stamps in my passport.
|Fiji - Meeting friends along the way - Si-Mon chopped down coconuts and gave me my first taste of fresh coconut water.|
Just a few nights ago we planned our next big adventure travelling to Vietnam and Malaysia in Spring
2016. Travelling back to Asia was not a difficult decision to make - because there was no competition in our hearts. Thailand gave us just a tiny taste of such an incredibly spiritual and truly heart-warming continent.
|Kanchanaburi, Thailand - The Bridge on the River Kwai was truly spectacular.|
With a girly retreat booked in September to Morocco, and a winter break to Iceland over Christmas, I am so fuelled with passion and excitement for travel. Something I never thought I would find myself saying.
|Ocean Beach, New Zealand - Beaches are beautiful even in winter.|
But, that's the thing with life, it surprises you in ways you didn't think were even possible.
I feel as though I am unlocking the adventure I have always dreamed of.
|Ayutthaya, Thailand - Travel is ultimately peace and tranquilty for me.|
Travel is love, and to love is to live.
