January 2016, I embarked on my first ‘road trip‘ with my cousins and my adventurous uncle. I had travelled to India to visit a dear friend (who was ill) and to spend the New Year with my family in Mumbai. Travelling solo meant I had no one to tell me what to do and what not to do. Best feeling ever when you can make your own decisions and do whatever you want. A freedom that is rarely bestowed upon some asian girls and boys for that matter.
2017 is proving to be (so far) a year of “first time” moments for me. I have been living in the UK for 15 years now but never been to Brighton (I hope i’m not the only one).
You may remember from my previous post that I was in Lewes for the LTA Summit and considering Brighton is just 30 minutes away, I decided this was the perfect opportunity to tick Brighton off the #bucketlist.
From visiting the famous Brighton Pier that everybody talks about to eating Fish and Chips to visiting the Royal Pavilion were some of the things I wanted to do. Do you think I managed to achieve this?
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.
