Just got a little bit of an update for you this week, more than anything else.
I’m happy to finally be able to announce that I will be embarking upon a very exciting adventure from September to December of this year. That’s right, Kane and I have decided to go travelling!
Where are we going, I hear you ask? We’ll be in South East Asia for 5 weeks, New Zealand for 1 month and Australia for 1 month.
I’ve wanted to go ever since before university and – if I’m honest – I’ve been holding on, waiting for the right time to go. I needed to save some money first as being a Uni student left me penniless! Then I got a job and moved to Milton Keynes and one thing led to another and here I am months later.
It’s been two years this July since I graduated from university and it’s about time that I did the things that I want to do before I get too old or too comfortable.
I’m one of those people that always uses ‘life’s too short’ as a mantra. I don’t mean to sound morbid, but you could die tomorrow. You never know what’s around the corner so you need to live your life while you still can and that means that happiness, hopes and wishes come first!
I’ve already talked it through extensively with close friends and family and the question I get asked the most is – aren’t you scared? Correction – I am absolutely terrified, but as my bathroom wall states:
In the build up to the date that I leave, and hopefully while I’m out there as well, I will be doing a series of travel-related posts. I’m hoping you will find these interesting whether you have plans to go in the future, have already been or don’t ever want to go but still find people talking about it fascinating!
I really appreciate all of your support and I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
(Would you go ever travelling or have you been? Do you have any tips? Thanks so much for reading ‘I Spy Trends’ and I would love to read your comments below. Katie-xo)
