A thirst for travel brought me to a scary crossroads in my life. I had never intended to travel alone, however, plans fell through, my boyfriend at the time wasn’t enjoying travelling and I was left to go solo. Even the thought of going on my own shot a nervous jolt throughout my body…but, if I was to wait for the right time, to wait for someone else, I’d have never taken the plunge. After finishing an epic 4 months travel in Southeast Asia I was determined to make it to Australia and see all it had to offer. It’s hands down offered me the best experience of my life. So the next time you’re inspired to go on a trip and can’t find anyone to go with, do yourself a favour and bite the bullet. What have you got to lose?
