I've never been travelling. This makes me sad to realise. I've been to Paris once for a weekend & I went to Portugal on holiday with my family about 5 years ago but that doesn't even count. My sister & I planned on going to Australia for six months a few years ago but then she got her dream job at home & it never really panned out. I think it's down to a number of reasons:

1. I like time to myself. I'm not the kind of person that can spend a lot of time in the company of others before I want to kill them. I would get about 3 days into my trip & require alone time immediately. Or I would get home & realise that I now hate everyone I travelled with.
2. I am scared of having no money. I know there's only one time in your life you can blow all your money on backpacking or interrailing and that's when you're young, but I need to pay for like, rent & food.
3. I don't like being dirty/without my makeup & hair dryer. Hostels, backpacking, etc sound horrendous to me. Any time I have stayed anywhere it has been a hotel with a nice hot shower and clean sheets & towels.

And that's why I've never been travelling. I feel that now it's too late for me as well because I will never in a million years be able to afford it unless I win the lottery. Plus I'm moving across country this year so it won't be any time soon that's for sure. I think that's why I'm so obsessed with looking at pictures of different places around the world. I feel like I've seen relatively little of the world around me which is sad for someone who's so in awe of it. So if I do win the lottery, the first thing I would do is pack a suitcase, grab some good friends (who will not put up with any of my dumb shit) & head straight to the airport. And these are some of the places I would go.




Paris (again)



Who's with me?


  1. I'm right there with you on all three of those points! I've been over to Europe twice in my life, but it was with family and I was definitely not doing the hostel backpacking thing! I enjoy looking at pictures of faraway places. Maybe we'll both win the lottery and get to travel! haha
