Something I have wanted to do for as long as I can remember is travel. I don’t just mean holiday, but leave the real world behind and just be free. Let go of possessions, take a backpack and go. For so many reasons I have put it off and pushed the thoughts to the back of my mind – however I knew that this feeling of wanting to escape wasn’t going to just leave me. After meeting a crazy fellow with the same dream (and trying desperately not to let him get too close so he wouldn’t make me want to stay) we decided to stop working, pack up our home and buy a one-way plane ticket. Finally the journey begins and I am lucky enough to be embarking on this adventure of a lifetime with my best friend – could life get much better?
