The reason why I’m sharing my travel pictures is to connect with others, and help anyone who wants to do the same.
Of course I want it to look aesthetic, that’s what insta is all about but there’s always a purpose to it.
I’m grateful I’ve been able to travel, although I know it’s nothing compared to others. I have a tonne on my bucket list but for me it isn’t about ticking off countries. It’s just to make it accessible for others, for those on a budget but still want to travel far, or for female solo travellers but are too afraid for their safety or even their family’s opinion to do it (a big topic I want to talk about sometime). Or even treating yourself to some luxury. It’s okay to want these things whatever you’re doing in your life. And these are the things I want to talk about and share.
This isn’t about showing off all the places I’ve been to. I really haven’t done anything special at all. I just love travel so much and I might as well make it useful to others at the same time so it has more worth than just for me.
I’ve been writing my whole life but haven’t found something I wanted to share with others as easily and as comfortably as travel so here we go :)
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I VOLUNTEER? // You always have the choice to extend your volunteer work, or you have the option to visit and explore other countries. Some volunteers stay longer, some continue to volunteer at other locations & others take the opportunity to venture off to travel to other places.
I always tend to find great deals while I'm overseas, which is why I buy a one-way ticket before I leave. I never know where I end up next, so this gives me the flexibility to move around.
I found a great deal to Split, Croatia last minute & booked a flight over after volunteering. This has to be one of my favourite places I've ever been to, any Game of Thrones fans out there? 👑 I don't usually like to visit the same place twice, but I would consider coming back here to stay for a little while. Anyone know of any great charities in Croatia? What are some causes or charities you personally support? #givingtuesday#volunteerabroad#travelanthropy#splitcroatia#iamtb#tlpicks#globe_travel#beautifuldestinations#gameofthronesfans
Found a forbidden broken pier and thought why the hell not? It’s not like there was a barrier with chains saying no public access. Oh wait there was 🙊
We met Firhaana, an amazing local who kindly showed us the island and took us around Speightstown which I first thought was called Spicetown so naturally, I loved it. She pointed out that there was a police officer right there and he hadn’t cared that we just climbed over the locked gate and walked onto the pier. It’s SO chill here, I love it!
We told her in London, we’d get arrested just looking at the gate 😝
If you read the Belgian comic book "Adventures of Tintin," you should find this castle quite familiar. The house of Captain Haddock (Tintin’s friend), Marlinspike Hall, was based on the central tower & two wings of Château de Cheverny. This chateau used white color for exterior walls and grayish blue color for the roofs. When walking around the château, you can see over 100 hounds that still lead the chase just like the way in 17th century.

What type of traveler are you? Hard core planner, stick to the itinerary or make it up as you go?
Besides logitics, I've become very much a go with the flow type traveler. I found it can lead to the most magical moments. Plus, i never have to worry if things don't go as planned. There's almost always something cooler around the corner anyways.
I woke up early on this morning to see the Royal Alcazar Palace but really wasn't up to waiting in line 😬 so i wandered back over to this park where i had taken a nap the day before (really i just waiting for people to leave so i could take a picture of the cool bench) ugh they never left 😬 but it payed to come back early for i had it all to myself with magical lighting to boot 🙌
