I decided last year that I would set myself a challenge. I want to travel to 30 countries by the age of 30.

I was bitten by the travel bug when I was 19. I am now 28, and so far, I have travelled to 29 countries.

I use the ‘been’ app to keep track.

I intend on writing travel blogs on each country/city I have travelled to, so watch this space.

I am also thinking of setting myself another travel goal. The seven wonders of the world by 40.

If you have any travel goals, I would love to hear them!!

Enjoy your adventure and return safely,
