I believe that the times I have shown the most growth and potential have been when I have been surrounded by new places, people and situations. Many of these instances have been whilst I have been travelling which is why I’m so determined to continue exploring and pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

It really is that first small step that you take that will lead you onto your next adventure however big or small. By making travel a focus I allow myself to start to take small steps towards my dream of exploring. I am determined and motivated to make travel a priority in my life because my life is about travelling! Planning, writing, expressing and saving are all examples of small steps I personally take towards achieving my goals.

It’s true and something I’m still working on doing. Until you experience other places and people you may not even realise the things that are dragging you down. It could be something as obvious as not liking your work or just simply wanting to get out more but other things aren’t as clear until you see it from a different point of view. Sometimes the energy and attitudes of people around us can impact on how we think about things – this can be positive and also negative. It isn’t until you step away from your situation that your able to look back and reflect on things. I am slowly starting to do this and going some place completely different to my ‘normal’ everyday life allows me to take some time to consider and evaluate my thoughts.

Learning is the biggest reward of growth in travel, I have found that when you’re in a new environment the natural thing is to learn – places, names, culture, customs, language, new foods, festivals, climates, attractions etc. the list goes on about all the opportunities for growth you can get from travelling!

Of course it’s all well and good me saying all this but if you don’t actually go and do it then you’ll never know the potential growth you might have. I’ve found myself always working to save to go and travel because I enjoy new challenges and learning about new places. Its scary going somewhere out of your comfort zone but in my experience its been the best decisions and really rewarding.

If you really want to maximise the potential for growth while travelling, go solo. Sounds scary right? Plan, be sensible and don’t worry. The media makes the world seem like a scary place, as long as you are aware and have some common sense then the opportunities you come across when going solo are endless! You’ll be able to plan your own routes, go at your own pace and really take some time to reflect on yourself.

THE VIEWS. The awe-inspiring, jaw dropping, serene views you can witness when traversing the four corners of the globe. Wether it’s a paradise beach straight out of a getaway magazine or an incredible cliff face overlooking a forest backdrop, you can’t help but travel for those views. That sense of feeling that theres so much more out there. The kind of view you can’t take your eyes off of; right up until the sunsets, still transfixed as a blanket of stars covers the night sky and on till the morning sun stretches its sunbeam arms over the horizon.

I travel for those views. Some travel for the view out of a balcony window overlooking a bustling city full of life and some travel for the infinite blue skies. Where ever you travel to you go for a different view that you wouldn’t find at home, to discover and explore. But most of all, to just see more than any screen or photo can ever do justice.

My passion as an explorer compels me to keep viewing the world and discovering new places. I hope to inspire others to go out and see more passing on my infectious passion to travel. I hope these posts help to provide some sort of motivation for you to break free from everyday life, even if just for a little while. Creativity is contagious, pass it on!

Here are some that I have looked upon:
