Start Here…

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

Let me just start with a little bit about me, my name is Kate and I have caught the travel bug (guilty!) But, where did this all begin? My passion first ignited from a trip with my family to a beautiful villa in Crete named Villa Maria Kreta. There was one thing that really stood out about this villa aside from the beautiful décor, amazing pool and to die for views and that was a canvas.

Now, you probably are going to think I’m mad as to why a canvas would be of such significance on this holiday but these words really stuck in my head and have now, completely changed my life!

So, I was about 17, still studying and didn’t really know what I wanted to do with myself. This canvas spoke to me, the words said “Adventures are the best way to learn” and I really thought to myself, what am I learning being stuck in education when really I hated it? I was a sucker for school and was never really fond of any of the subjects I was studying, unlike some of my friends who had really settled, I just wanted to get out of there ASAP. And, of course, don’t get me wrong – education is important, but to me, it seemed there was so much more to life than that and my heart needed to wander!

On this trip I grew a love for this country especially the sandy pink beaches, the rich culture and the mountainous villages and decided I wanted to action those words, so that’s what I did, packed up and left everything behind to explore the world – blogging my experiences of all the amazing countries I visit! And so far, it really has been a life changing experience however cliché that sounds…

So in this blog I’m just gonna tell you a bit more about my experiences, provide some information on the places I’ve visited, and also give you all some tips if you decide to travel to some of the amazing places I’ve been lucky enough to go to!
