As I am on a little backpacking trip this month, I thought I would do a couple of travel themed posts!
Travelling opens your eyes to so many amazing experiences. I wanted to share some of my absolute favourites with you.
Swimming with whale sharks in the Philippines. I am terrified of the sea, especially deep water, so I basically just clung to the side of the boat hyperventilating for like 10 minutes (glamorous right?). But when I finally forced myself to swim, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my whole life. They are huge but so beautiful and peaceful. I have a tattoo of one now to remember it.
Horse riding in the sea in Bali. I used to have a horse when I was younger and I adore them. Unfortunately I am allergic so I got a pretty bad rash afterwards but it was 100% worth it to gallop bareback on the beach.
Beer bike in Budapest. My friends and I went to Budapest for one of their birthday’s a few years back and the beer bike was absolutely hilarious and so much fun. Random people were hopping on and off and at one point we were having to hand people beer in the street because there was SO much of it! It’s actually really hard too, you really have to put a lot of effort in to get it moving.
Crazy Shark in Cyprus. I am pretty afraid of the sea so this was one of the first times I really challenged that – it was a brave holiday for me! It’s basically an enormous inflatable that you sit on that gets pulled along by a speed boat and is hands down one of the most fun things I’ve ever done.
Quad biking in Cambodia. I saw real water buffalo including little babies bathing in the rivers and got to go all through the little villages. Then we got to watch the sunset and it was so beautiful!
Joe’s Garage in Portugal. When I went to Portugal with a group of friends one of them told us that this was the best bar they had ever been to in the world. I definitely thought it would end up being disappointing with such great reviews to live up to but I can confirm now, that it is the best bar I have ever been to in the world.
Snorkelling boat trip in Greece. This was my first ever snorkelling trip and it was so fun! We got to see so much beautiful landscape and there were loads of cool fish. It lasted all day and was such a fun day out.
The Panda’s in Edinburgh Zoo. Panda’s are one of my favourite animals. This is because my cat is called Panda and it reminds me of my cat, who I adore. When I went to Edinburgh I finally got to see a panda in real life and they were every bit as amazing as I’d hoped they would be!
I’d love to hear some of your favourite travel experiences!
