Making Travel A Lifestyle

Exotic destination get away
Over the past few years, unfortunately like most budding travel pioneers, I have not been able to be involved as much as I would have liked to due to the obvious obstacles.

In 2015 after years of saving I finally purchased my apartment then the following year my mother was diagnosed with cancer and sadly passed away two years later the most of 2018 and 2019 was dedicated towards my family grieving and attempting to bounce back from a such a huge loss.

We were able to go on a family holiday last year to scatter my mother's ashes in Jamaica and spend time together reminiscing about her.

Throughout 2019 I have had several life changes, one of which was a new job and while I was in a trip to Denmark for work reasons, I thought (note to self), why am I not doing this more often, travelling for pleasure and not work?

Travelling is such a fantastic enriching experience, and it has always been my intention for it to be a more regular part of my routine. Of course things like life gets in the way, but it's never too late right?

So while I would love to go to those far away once in a lifetime destinations there are many places on my doorstep that I have yet to venture to such as Paris and Amsterdam and with the amount of money I have spent on shoes, bags and nights out in the past I can't keep pleading poverty, when I don't get to the countries I feel I deserve to be at.

Here's how I'm transforming my life to incorporate elements from my most recent vacation.

In my "perfect world", I'd like to take 5-6 mini getaways a year but time and work constraints 3-4 getaways around the UK or Europe would be manageable and one big holiday possibly two if I spend wisely and properly utilize bank holidays I think I can cram some amazing experiences into 2020.

If you are also considering how to have more travel experiences into your life, I would suggest that you think about all of your what destinations you would like to go to and why.
Holiday planning

Of course, take into consideration if you can afford it and if you can fit it around your work and life commitments, but do not overthink it otherwise you will not end up going anywhere.

Remember you work hard and deserve some adventure, culture and perhaps a bit of pampering.

Of course we 'shouldn't wait until we go on holiday to create memorable moments. The trick is to establish a life that you don't have to take a break from.
Flying plane
I'm a true believer in the fact that travelling broadens the mind, so the more you travel is the more you can appreciate home and what it has / hasn't done for you. Its an education as well as invaluable experiences and amazing memories to look back on one day.

Where are your dream travel destinations and why?
