Hmm Travel.. I think I live for this. I love getting lost in strange places and hearing foreign languages. Many of my trips were done solo. I really don’t mind travelling alone; I actually quite enjoy it. I believe we will get to know ourselves better when we are alone in a totally new place outside of our comfort zones. I also find it important to be self-content.
I’m one of those people who can live cheaply to save up some money, then spend it all on my travels. I’ve been to more than 30 countries in the world; so far in Europe, Asia, North America and Oceania. South America, Africa and Antarctica are still on my list.
You probably have some highlights or spectacular moments during your travels. Here are some of mine:
Living in London
It was a bliss to be able to live in London, if we are talking about traveling. Flight tickets come much cheaper with more airline competitions. Most (if not all) airlines will have routes via, to, and from London. Within 6-7 hours, you’re in New York or North America. In 3-4 hours, you’re in North Africa. In 1-3 hours, you’re in any cities you want in Europe, be it with a flight or a train.
I have been quite lazy writing my travels. But here are the things that I recommend to see based on my experiences:
- The nature, people, and music in Iceland
- The ruin bars and the phenomenal city of Budapest
- Tiny villages on the Swiss Alps
- The warmth, food, fiestas, people and the culture of Madrid, Spain
- Barcelona’s Roman area and random house parties
- Wine & Champagne tasting at a French vineyard
- Norwegian Fjords
- German beer and wurst sausages
- Exploring the old city of Florence by bicycle
- Getting lost in the narrow streets of Rome
- How old stones, modern glass, and metal structure can blend so beautifully in Berlin
- Being frozen in Prague (I went in winter, -20 C)
- Stockholm, Swedish archipelago and villages
- Galicia (North West Spain) and how people are extremely welcoming there
- Campervan trip in New Zealand
- And of course London, my favourite city in the world
Moving to Australia
Since I moved to (and now residing in) Australia, I don’t travel that often anymore due to the distance. But now when I travel, I usually go on a longer period, visiting more places at once. Simply because plane tickets are way more expensive from here, and not to mention the vast distances.
These are the places that are high on my “to-visit” list
