My first adventure was something of a miracle, meeting a complete stranger online to backpack Europe with and it couldn't have been better! Since then, I just haven't been able to stop. I've been lucky enough to travel with only backpack on my back and in true comfort so I've got some experience and knowledge behind me on different travel styles in the 21st century.
I've set foot on 5 of the 7 continents at only the age of 23, however have roamed some of those much less than I would like! With a map on my wall and a globe on the bedside table though I'm sure I'll get to tread all over soon.
Leaving school I had no intention to go anywhere other than 5* resorts, drink fantastically delicious champagne and be the epitome of class in all aspects of life. Three years on, aged twenty one, I am very different to the person I used to be. I’ve thrown away the heels and donned the hiking boots. Sure, I still frequent the champagne bar (when it’s free!) but I’m less concerned about how I look and more concerned about how I feel. For all the girls out there who always say ‘I can’t’ – You can. The only person stopping you from achieving your dreams is yourself. I have skydived, surfed, trekked, swum with massive crocodiles, kissed a komodo dragon, been shot at, tackled tumbling falls and raging rivers, camel raced and sipped cocktails in over a dozen countries. When it comes to stepping out of your comfort zone; I know my stuff. It doesn't matter how you do it; in a 5* resort or camping on a beach. Trust me, trust yourself, hit the road, it will change your life.
