  1. Lovely! Such a wonderful adventure ahead of you. I’m an avid traveler (30+ countries in my 26 years) so follow my blog for travel destinations and advice. I just started it yesterday but I keep posting – so many great adventures to share!!! Let me know what you think about it!

    • Wow, 30+ countries?! That’s amazing! I’ve traveled quite a bit but nowhere near 30 yet! Hopefully, I’ll get there in the next few years. I know it’s hard to pick but out of all the places you’ve visited, what has been your favorite?

      • That’s a tough question! I like different places for different reasons! A few trips I absolutely loved though: 1) Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia, Argentina – we trekked the glacier for 4 hours. It’s blue, we had a clear sky and warm day. The photos I have there are unbelievable! 2) Harbin ice festival in China – near the border with Russia, it’s -30C there! Imagine real sized buildings completely made of ice and more. 3) Cabo Polonio in Uruguay – this is a hippie-feel beach with no electricity and with remote access. Best to go in a full moon period. The sky at night has been the best ever! Full of stars and can easily see the Milky Way. Truly breathtaking 4) Atacama desert in Chile – so many options in terms of trekking, visiting natural springs, sand boarding, etc. What I loved was the contrast in scenery. In one view you had the desert plus snow on the Andes in the backdrop. Incredible! I would suggest traveling alone to some of these and going on nature trips – it’s so refreshing and it’s time you dedicate to up yourself! Hope you make it to these! Which trip is next on your list?

      • Wow, all of those trips sound amazing! The next trip on my list is South Africa. Have you ever been? I’d also love to visit Morocco soon too. I was in Spain & Portugal over the winter holidays, but I didn’t have enough time (my school’s winter break is super short, unfortunately) to visit Morocco too, despite being so close.

      • Unfortunately not! Africa is a continent I have yet to go to! I’ve done Europe and Latin America a lot and a bit of Asia 🙂 any advice I can give you there let me know! I can’t wait to read about your travels! Yours was such a great blog find!

  2. A fun and challenging list! Your wish to ride in a hot air balloon put an idea in my head 🙂
