We gaze into the horizon after travelling thousands of miles, and we think to ourselves “so this is what it looks like when the sun rises half-way around the world”. Travel anywhere and you’re often greeted by breathtaking, stunning, awesome — my limited vocabulary has been exhausted — views. And this moment is only complete with… a shot for the ‘gram.
Travelling with your other half, be it for the first time or just another of the many yearly trips, is all romantic, exciting, and full of hopes and dreams for a prettier IG feed. However, a couple trip can also turn from a fairytale into a nightmare that is beyond the 'gram, if you take it too easily that life on the road 24/7 next to each other will be the same as that of your routine lifestyle back home.
This is Jerelyn — the next best thing to do after she quit her job? Book an Anywhr trip - for 11 days, on a solo luxury getaway. As usual, we're omitting the details of Destination X. However, as you might imagine, with an 11 day, luxury booking at our disposal, we were thrilled. Off she went to a destination that in her own words, was 'beyond her wildest imagination'. Expecting to go somewhere in Asia, she (and her curious friends and worried parents) would never have guessed her surprise European island destination! And we wouldn't blame them, for this island away from its more touristy mainland is pretty much locals-only.
You’ve either got your paper qualifications or you’re in the midsts of mugging for them, but are you ready for life? The schools and parents can only tell (nag) us that much about the ‘real world’, but this one life is for you to live with wild abandon. Before drowning in the usual adult talk about savings, insurance, and signing those nuptials, this is how every 20-something year old should be spending their youth.
Travelling can get tricky especially when you don’t have the right things to make life easier and I know for a fact that being a student traveller means that you are not seasoned enough to remember exactly what to pack. Besides, your itinerary is most probably going to be a spontaneous and action packed one. So, I am sure you don’t want to be missing anything when you are out there.
