How Travel in My 20s Changed My Life


When I was in my late teens, I had a longing to go to The United States of America. TV soaps from the USA showed it as an exciting place full of fun, adventure and beauty. To me, it was the centre of the world!

That is how my travels started. At the age of 20, my sister and I packed our bags to go to Hollywood and New York. It ended up being a 26 state 3-month road trip. Continue reading “How Travel in My 20s Changed My Life”
