You know those moments where you feel like you need to pinch yourself really hard to check you aren’t dreaming? Yup, today that’s what I’m talking about.
Travel has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done in my life. Hands down. I don’t regret any of the time and money I’ve spent on travel and sincerely believe it has changed my life so much for the better.
When it comes to ‘pinch-me’ travel moments that I’ve had, these aren’t necessarily once in a lifetime moments or things I’ll never experience again. They’re just times when I was incredibly happy with where I was and what I was doing at that time. Moments that made me feel on top of the world and unable to wipe the smile off my face. Times that I look back on and can’t help feeling fabulous just thinking about them.
