Whether you start early, or start late, there is no escaping that wretched “Travel Bug”. You will be hooked! And I, like many before me, was hooked from the moment I sat down in my 34G seat of my Hawaiin Airlines flights – on my way to spend my 21st in Las Vegas, and all on my own (well, I did a Contiki tour, so technically I wasn’t on my own)!
I remember my first glimpse of “foreign land” so vividly! We were descending over Pearl Harbor to land, and my eyes immediately began to well up with tears. I was so overwhelmed by not only the beauty of the Hawaii’n shoreline, but by the fact that I was experiencing International travel! While I love to travel with my partner and groups of friends, I really have to say that it just doesn’t compare to the feeling of travelling by yourself. I know it may be cliche to say “you learn so much about yourself”, but you really do. Travel gives you a form of self-growth, that you really can’t experience any other way. I hope to travel and experience so much that the world has to offer, and I hope you enjoy my documenting of it here.
