It’s summer soon, and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to being done with university for now, forgetting about exams (is it too soon to be thinking about this already?), long summer days, and lastly, travelling! I want to share my travel experiences and thoughts I have had over the years..
Since a young age, I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel and explore different countries. When it came to university, I wasn’t going to let this stop me, however it would be different this time, because it’s travelling without parents, and of course, watching your wallet and not breaking the bank! As I have grown older, I have come to love travelling more and more, and really appreciate the place, culture and fully immerse myself into the whole experience.
I think you also learn so much when travelling while at university. From learning how to be organised and plan your itineraries weeks before your trip. Or being on the lookout for those cheap flights, and great deals on AirBnb’s or hostels, it honestly becomes a skill once you practice this for a while! As well as meeting new people and learning about the culture’s of the places you visit, the food, the history.
I have made a point to travel whilst I’m at university, because let’s face it, once we start working, what job is going to let you have almost 5 months of holidays in the whole year?! It doesn’t have to be a luxurious, glamorous holiday, you can still travel on a budget, you just have to plan well and spend accordingly! I don’t really know the average spending of nights out here but I’m quite sure, not partying for a month, can get you a flight to Italy. Yes, there are flights for as little as £30! Nevertheless, if you can’t afford to hop on a plane and visit a different country, explore your own country! There is so much this world has to offer.
Here are a few of the places I’ve had the opportunity to explore whilst I have been at university ?
Diani beach, Kenya (exploring my own country!)
Cinque Terre, Italy
Krka National Park, Croatia
