I am a Traveller – Friday Life Motivation.

Travel! It has been such an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember – I am a traveller.

Does Travelling Mean You Are Running From Something?

When people hear that I have been actively travelling for 10 years they usually react in one of three ways.

This reaction leads to a great conversation for both of us and I hear of all the travelling desires and adventures they have planned out. I love discussing a passion such as travel with someone. (more…)
