Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey. - Pat Conroy
Apart from a few individual pictures of interesting people I took on my holiday, this is my very last holiday post. I love the fact that even though it ended just over a month ago, I've had all these memories to share with you up until now. More than I love fashion, I love travel.
I love going to a new place and leaving everything I know; being thrown out of my comfort zone and forced to discover a whole new way of life. It really puts things into perspective, making you realize just how small a part you play in the grand scheme of things. There is so much more to life than what we know, so much more.
I know travelling is expensive but honestly, if you search hard enough and maybe even sacrifice shopping for a period of time, you will find that it's not as expensive as you think. When I went to South East Asia, I wasn't staying in luxurious hotels. I was staying in hostels (sometimes awful) with other backpackers and we were having the time of our lives discovering places for what they really were! It wasn't about luxury, it was about reality. This way, many backpackers get to travel to multiple locations for long periods of time on a budget. Do your research and you may be surprised by what you find. Also, remember that I'm always only an e-mail away for any travel advice.
If you're at a place where you really can't afford to travel, I bet that there is so much in your own country that you have not discovered. You will learn so much if you step out of your comfort zone everyone once in a while because there's a lot to explore on your doorstep that you've overlooked. I have so many places still on my bucket list and I really am going to have to shop much less and save much more as I grow up to keep on taking on the world one country at a time.
The pictures above were taken at Constance Ephelia hotel, Seychelles. It was absolutely stunning but the food was awful. If you ever go to the Seychelles, I'd assume that you like to eat good food on your holidays. For that reason, you might not want to stay at Ephelia. I loved every single thing apart from that though.
Did you notice the picture of the two spiders suspended in the air? I saw that and had to do a double take. I'm still confused!
Thankyou for reading my blog and following my journey, it means so much to me.
