Though I may have started this year vowing to travel less far and wide, in a fortunate twist of events I’ve actually ended up spending far more time ‘in the air’ than anticipated. Since landing an anchor position with TravelXP I have dashed in and out of the UK so regularly that when I am at home I find myself savouring every possible moment spent catching up with my friends and family.
There is something about Paris that gets me every time! It’s one of the countries I’ve visited most frequently in the last ten years and though it’s often declared as the city of love I have travelled, more times than with, without my significant other.
I recently traveled to the quaint Italian destination Rappallo for the wedding of two of our closest friends and whilst the trip itself was very much a holiday, we had the most amazing few days exploring the area.
The city of Salzburg in Austria was one of those places I had heard of but knew very little about. I didn’t really have much interest in visiting before heading there for work but from the very first first hour of being in the country I knew that Austria would be one of my favourite places. It caught me by surprise which, let’s face it, is always a great position to be in when travelling!
Last month I turned another year older and to celebrate switching a digit in my age I travelled to a destination that has been at the top of my bucket list for years, Cappadocia.
There are few hotels in the world that manage to beautifully connect modern invention with treasured ancient tradition but the Kelebek Cave Hotel in Cappadocia has managed it quite perfectly!
Travelling the world as part of my job is nothing short of amazing, there’s no bigger work perk than one that allows you to travel. It can however be, as with all professions, a little taxing and just as there may be a ‘How to get through a working day as an accountant’ Handbook, here’s my personal guide to mastering travelling as part of your living.
Another year older, another year wiser? It’s one of those obvious cliches that rings truer each and every year people wish me a Happy Birthday.
Babe, what are you doing Monday? My gal Amy asks me a few Friday’s ago, ‘nothing’ I answered, ‘Why?’. Fast forward 72 hours and we’re both on a plane to Ibiza……..for just one night!
