There’s no doubt in my mind, if I had my dream life, I would travel 24/7. The growth I’ve experienced and lessons I’ve learned while travelling to different countries and witnessing different cultures has been monumental. I have every intention of seeing more and more the older I get. So far on my bucket list I’ve got a few places lined up: Peru to see Machu Pichu, Ireland to see the green landscapes and historic stoney walls, Cambodia to see the ancient temples.. I could go on. One thing is for sure, anytime I am travelling to another land I make sure I bring along some key essentials. I decided to write up a list for them here with some of my latest picks (Affiliated).
When Steve and I had our first date almost six years ago, one of the things that stuck out the most from our first conversation was how much we both loved to travel. We also realized that ‘the way’ we loved to travel was the same, we both loved to see as much as we could and we would rather spend our money immersing ourselves in the culture of a country rather than spend money on an all inclusive trip to lie on a beach for seven days (not that theres anything bad about a little R&R.. and believe me, you offer me an all inclusive trip? ILL TAKE IT!). Since being together, we’ve had opportunities to travel here and there but one thing is for sure, we aren’t rolling in dough so we have to make sure we plan our trips accordingly and budget. And so begins the section of my blog dedicated to travelling the world (when you’re just the average joe who wants to see and do everything like us) called “Wanderlust”.
