Over the weekend I have been reminiscing about what started my love of travelling, and what ultimately started this blog.
Three years ago, I took a leap of faith and got on a plane in Vancouver ready to fly to London. With a fellow journalism student beside me, Samantha, we landed in London and explored a city foreign to both of us.
After a few days we hopped on a train from London to Preston, England. Here would be our new home for 6 months. We left the familiar behind us and said hello to a new university, new home, and new life.
This was one of the scariest things I had ever done. However, it was also one of the most rewarding. Before this trip I had never been anywhere alone. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me how rewarding the unknown is.
Through my exchange I met the most amazing people from all over the world. I am proud to say I have friends from the United States, Finland, England and Canada, just to name a few. We were able to travel around England and across Europe together.
Without the amazing group of exchange girls that I met, I wouldn’t be able to say I have explored places on a whim.
Three years ago I made a trip of a lifetime. It pushed me to want more and see more. It pushed me to blog about everything I see, to share it with people who may not be able to experience the same places I have.
I truly believe everyone should push their boundaries, expect more, and travel more.
