Travel Adventures Stories on Culture and History + Travel Guide
Travel, synonymous to a journey of some length between two or more geographical locations has often been undertaken for many different reasons. Some may travel for the sake of taking a break from their routine, monotonous 9 to 5 lifestyle. Others may do so to check-off their travel bucket list, yet some may just want to capture moments for an #instapic. For some, it means freedom. Freedom to find oneself amongst a different environment, a different country, a different culture and the opportunity to immerse oneself in that unique cultural experiences. There is also the adventurous kind, who pursue the unusual and exciting journeys. Amongst all those who travel, there is a selective group who have great appreciation for experiences without guidebooks or itineraries who showcase themselves pursuing an off the beaten path lifestyle. For whatever reason one chooses to travel,and wherever one travels to – Travel changes you.
Travel had and continues to shape my perspectives on life and how I see the many cultures that I am so blessed to get in contact with. Having caught the bug to explore for as long as I can remember but decided recently to document my travels of late into a blog, sharing my adventures with all my readers.
The Cambridge English Dictionary defines “adventure” as:
“an unusual, exciting, and possibly dangerous activity, such as a trip or experience, or the excitement produced by such an activity”
I like to call my travel experiences as “adventures” because they truly are an adventure for me. The excitement that goes into planning, choosing where to go and the excitement of the unexpected…is truly amazing and make lasting memories. I have learnt from each experience and each experience in-turn makes me a better traveller.
As I learn through my adventures, I share my experiences to various destinations in the articles I write and offer ideas to plan your journeys. Travel need not be expensive or break ‘your bank’! Within budget, you could always find the right accommodation for the right price without compromising on comfort and safety. Planning a holiday beforehand is therefore crucial. A well-planned itinerary in a predetermined budget range will do wonders to a meaningful and memorable holiday. My sincere wish is for my articles to aide your independent planning of an awesome adventure – design your adventure your way, for a meaningful vacation and for your well-being.
There is no denying that I am all about independent travel and well-being. My well-being is important to me at all times, even more so when I travel and away from the comfort of my home. For my own comfort of travel and peace of mind, I am totally reliant on my travel accessories – never leave home without them! In addition, I design my travels my way so I will have free time for spa, downtime to watch the sunset and much more without the pressures of ticking off a list of must see sights or let the days roll-by without venturing out. It’s about balance. I gladly share this knowledge with you through my articles.
So, my vacations are designed from the multitude of information available. It is this multitude of information gathered and subsequently filtered to design a meaningful, enjoyable and memorable holiday that I share with you. My articles give you almost all the information you may need to visit the places I have visited, to support your travel planning in designing your travel your way. However, this does not mean that I have not used travel planners before. I have and they are an invaluable resource. I have learnt from them and I use the experience to design my own. I have also used package holidays where the weight of planning was taken off of me! The benefits of using package holidays are many and it should be a go to resource if it suits your circumstances. Take a look at this page for ideas.
Finally, if you have any questions about any travel or should you require a travel itinerary, look no further. I will be delighted to do one for you by combining my expertise, local knowledge and contacts with local agents of your holiday destination. I can create bespoke itineraries for solo and couples over 50 who are seeking to make memories of their own. You can get in touch with me via the contact page
For now, come and join me in my adventures across the globe.
AFRICA | ASIA | EUROPE | NORTH AMERICA | MIDDLE EAST
Although the adventure in me has taken my family and I to many places around the globe over the last twenty-five years, I must admit that I have visited just over thirty countries so far. I am yet to visit all the cities and all the countries this beautiful world has in store. There are 193 countries or the 195 as some may say or even the 197 – whichever way you look at it. – I intend to visit each and every country before I fall off my twig.
Join me as I explore One City, One Country, One Journey at a time.
