Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
― André Gide
It’s crazy that I want to travel the world when I haven’t explored my own backyard yet. Hoping to change this by taking baby steps. I first heard about ‘Hanwell Zoo’ on twitter and decided to check their website for more information.
I don’t believe in having new year resolutions because I always break them. I love having a goal or setting out targets for myself. They are termed as positive changes because the word itself motivates me to keep working hard and achieve my goal.
My dream is to travel and explore, what’s yours?
2017 started off with an adventure and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. I never would have guessed that my dream of visiting Paris would come true. This year has truly been magical and I am so grateful for everything that has happened. What are you most grateful for this year?
Patience does pay off and hard work does bear fruit.
I was travelling with my friend and this being a day trip, we booked the 5:40 Eurostar to Paris Gare du Nord. Paris greeted us with rape seed fields, graffiti walls and cold weather.
My first trip to Paris was nothing less than an adventure. From getting lost for 3 hours (we had reached our destination but due to language barrier thought we had to get another train and that took us away from the main city) to getting soaked in rain, including my camera. But, even after losing valuable time, we still managed to fit in a lot of places.
The journey from London St Pancras to Dover Priority Station took about 1 hour 35 minutes and costs us £79.80 (2x return tickets on javelin at any time). Once at the Station, the steep walk to Dover Castle is about 15-20 minutes. There’s also a bus service available but we decided to walk to the castle.
