2017 had a lot of ups and downs, but as we close the year off in hopes of a better one next year, it’s time to reflect on the experiences that made us happy. Here are my top nine travel experiences I had in 2017.
I lay on the examining table at the hospital in the Galapagos Islands. The doctor said something in Spanish. His face gave nothing away. My translator Eduardo leaned in. “The doctor said ‘This is going to hurt a lot.’” The doctor’s assistants moved in to hold me down. I covered my mouth with my free hand and prepared for the worst.
You are (20)16 going on (20)17, baby it’s time to reflect.
The wonderful year of 2016 has come to an end. It was a big year, full of brand new adventures. I jumped into travel writing, I took my first solo trip and learned how to used my vacation days to travel. You could say it was the first year in a journey of a lifetime.
While the amount of time off depends on what country you work in and the company you work for, vacation days are essential for any traveller that still works full time. While it may be the dream for some to be a digital nomad or a full-time traveller, for others, it’s just not possible. Especially, when you love your job, but still want to travel.
Thanks for checking out ‘Travel Favourites’, a collection of posts, Instagrams, news, links, products and other great stuff I’ve gathered to share with you each month.
I am so happy to announce that I have finally jumped in with both feet into my travel writing dream. I ~officially~ launched my website earlier this month after YEARS of wanting to do just this. I’ve been putting off my dreams for a whole host of excuses, so NO FEAR right?!
