Why I Travel

Hello everyone!

 

This post is another one for a swap on Swap-Bot, which can be found here.

 

I’m fortunate enough to come from a relatively well-off family, so while living in England, traveling was a huge part of my life. I grew to love it from a young age – I would pack at least 2 weeks in advance due to the excitement. The plane trip there was also just as exciting for me – I would always take the window seat, so I can see the plane take off and look at the different landscapes we pass over (when we weren’t flying at night or through clouds). I loved seeing how different the scenery and cultures were and would imagine what I would be like if I grew up there instead. We would usually go to a new country every holiday, as well as having our yearly skiing trip in the French Alps. Sadly I lost most of my old photos when my hard drive crashed a few years ago, but here’s a photo of us at Disney World Florida in 2002:

My passion for traveling hasn’t changed except that I can no longer do it as regularly, as I now live in South Africa. It’s very expensive for us to travel anywhere due to the poor economy. I have an entire bucket list of countries I want to visit one day (or visit again because I was so young the last time). I can’t afford to travel much now, but I plan to move to Denmark in a few years and then traveling will be easier again. I do often go to different places within my country though. On a few occasions we have gone overseas since living here as well. I have also paid for my own trips to Portugal (sadly those photos are also lost) and Denmark.
