Essence of “yolo”

ohh..you only live once

Bonjour from Paree! I haven’t posted in aggges due to working 70+ hours a week, months before my holiday, and since leaving in June, have been flat out enjoying this “gap” travel time in Europe.

I don’t even know where to begin.. I have hands down had the time of my life, starting with a 29 day topdeck tour, met friends for life, partied with them as if we’d been best friends forever..and made memories to last me till my nursing home days..so cliche, but so effing true.

here’s a quick snapshot of my favorite memories… I’ll just post photos,and captions..In no particular order..

Bear with the photo quality,all taken with my phone..

Currently in my second month of travel and loving it! This is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.

xx ciao for now

Overall, one of my favorite memories has  been skydiving over the swiss alps, hung over with a good friend after partying all night with marines,then getting one hour of sleep before getting up…

A trip to remember ( on a budget)

28 Apr

Howdy howdy, long time no post. 🙂

I’ve been so busy working and saving for this long awaited holiday I’ve been fantasizing about since year 10.

So I’ve been earning every penny the hard way- working two jobs… and here I am 5 years after high school, also completed uni and about to embark on this trip.

Since i’d like to be travelling for 5 months i’m considering couch surfing for some of the trip as I really want to stretch what little savings I have- I’ve read and heard mixed things but overall good. I’m interested to see if anyone who stumbles across my blog has tried couch surfing? Where did you do it? and how did you find it?

I can’t wait to meet so many new people!
