Attending “Live The Adventure #LTASummit”- Was it the right decision?

Attending "Live The Adventure #LTASummit"- Was it the right decision? - Fronam's Diary

Attending #LTASummit with Louis Cole

Last year, @funforlouis announced that the Live The Adventure Club was organising a travel summit for like minded explorers to achieve their biggest travel dreams. 

I’ve always wanted to travel and explore new places since I was a kid and this passion keeps getting stronger and stronger as I age. 

When the tickets went on sale, I purchased without blinking my eye lids. I was so excited to have scored the tickets but then reality kicked in? 

I’m not a you-tuber neither have I travelled much compared to people attending the #LTASummit. You can imagine how petrified I was (anxiety levels went straight to 200). I was overthinking to a point where I had made up my mind of skipping the event. The thought of me being the only one at the summit without a channel made me sick (not forgetting that I haven’t even explored my backyard let alone travelled the world).

After contemplating for the longest time, I took the plunge. I grabbed my bags and embarked on the Live The Adventure journey.

 “If its terrifying and amazing, then you should definitely pursue it”. –  Erada

And so the adventure begins……. 

 

They decided to put the London gang in one room (L-R: Rayman Mufasa Krishan Clark-Varma Tim Chung). I’ve met some of the nicest and most hardworking people on this summit.

My dance partner Ashleyyyyy and yes we had a rave. You think i’m lying? Check out the #LTASummit videos especially Louis’s and Alfie Deyes 

An afternoon of sports activities. Taking our own sweet time 

My first time trying Falconry and the expression says it all. The owls are so heavy but what an experience it was to hold this creature. You certainly don’t wanna mess around with them especially when it comes to food. How many of you have tried falconry?

We climbed (which looked like mt everest especially when you are so not so fit) the hill and enjoyed the beautiful views (the relief on Stephanie’s face says it all. You should have seen my face, I was knackered).

It’s surreal to think that we were staying at the same place as Louis, Raya, Dave, Kristen, Siya, Josh, Nadine, Vagabrothers and Carrie were staying, eating breakfast and dinner at the same table as Dave. From singing songs by the fire to raving to the woodville music. From expressing our fears to sharing our dreams. From learning tips and tricks to diving into virtual reality. From listening to crazy embarrassing stories to chatting till 4am in the morning, the list goes on and on.

For me, The Live The Adventure Summit was all about living in the present moment, making the most of what I had available (I realised how little we need to survive), making new connections, exploring and making memories along the way.

I was in a different world with a peaceful mind, living the adventure away from the hustle and bustle from the city with almost a non existence wifi connection which was the best thing that could have ever happened –  “a blessing in disguise”.

The whole trip was full of first time moments for me and had I not decided to attend the #LTASummit I would have missed out on the best opportunity life had thrown my way. However, the fire within me to travel and explore kept the spark going and that one small decision to attend the Live The Adventure summit proved to be the best decision ever. 

I am not the same person anymore. There’s definitely something that’s changed within me. I don’t know what it is. All i know is that I wanna chase my dreams, work hard towards my goals and make every single one of them possible because I know I can.

It’s crazy that one small decision that we make can change the entire story, our whole journey. Sometimes, we make those decisions because we think its right but there are times when fear, anxiety or doubts takes charge of those decisions and we succumbed to these fears.

It’s time for you to Live The Adventure!

    This trip definitely changed me also, I was not much of a Youtuber anymore, just a travel novice, everyone inspired me to go bigger and better now!

I couldn't help but stare at my #dreamhouse 🏡💖 dreaming of spending chilly winters by the wooden fireplace 🔥baking pies and drinking tea ☕️ while gazing out of the window 💭
Hey a girl can dream right ?☺️💖✨

  • Beaconsfield is a beautiful town with spectacular houses full of character and architectural perfection 🏘
But what caught my eye were the gardens. It's like every house has a forest 🌲🌳🐿 as their front/back garden and it's all maintained and taken very good care of 💖
I love exploring new places on foot and by getting lost 🚶🏻‍♀️which means I need to take breaks either to fuel up 🥘🌯which happens 99% of time or to just take in some fresh air 💕
  • Exploring new #cornersofmyworld is my favourite thing to do especially when it's this beautiful 😍

What's YOUR favourite thing to do?
  • Everytime I have holidays booked and wanna go exploring, I come down with a flu 🤧

Don't think the universe is on my side ☹️
But sometimes I refuse to give in and there are times where my body refuse to co-operate 😨

It's a tough world we live in, I tell you 😂🤣 So for now I'm in snuggled in my duvet all comfy watching the storm go crazy outside destroying my flower pots 🍂🥀🍃
  • The cold winds are creeping in just like @richmond_council does every now and then on my feed ☺️
See if you can spot the dog hiding behind the flowers 🐶
