10 Things Travelling Has Taught Me About Myself

Making My Wardrobe Work For Me

This past 3 months have been one hell of a learning curve and it’s safe to say that there’s nothing I’ve ever looked forward to more than going home, feeling the cold, drinking a proper cup of tea and snuggling my puppy!!

Don’t get me wrong, I love to travel but travel and travelling are two completely different things and though this has been an incredible experience, it was definitely a one time thing! I have learn’t a lot about myself though and also found a new tolerance for WEIRD, sand in my bed and questionable food.


Here’s 10 things travelling has taught me about myself. .

10  I am not a traveller (unless I’m staying in a 5* resort that is – amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for the world but I couldn’t do it again!)

    I am irresistible to mosquitoes too! And I HATE it so much. I am always the target out of whoever I’m with, ugh.

    Fab photos! I love travelling but it gets tiring if you’re on the go all the time and visiting lots of new places. I recently did a road trip to France and loved it, but I also felt like I needed a holiday afterwards to get some relaxation time! x

      It really is tiring! I think most people see it as a long holiday but it can be so so hard sometimes and especially when you travel on a budget so the accommodation is roughing it to say the least!

    At least you had the chance to have a great experience even if it would be a bit more luxurious next time! Awesome photos too x

      Exactly! I would do it all again and wouldn’t change it for the world but definitely a one off trip!!!

    Looks fun! I’d love to travel like this <3 Also, we totally have giant flying cockroaches in Texas so I might be able to handle Thailand?

    I traveled for three months across Asia years ago and was increasingly less appreciative as it went. It was before Internet and cell phones, and the stress of getting to a new country, getting money, getting out of the airport, finding a hotel, finding a place to eat was just exhausting after a couple of months. And this was after I had lived in Africa for two years, so I was quite used to being in a foreign place with few luxuries (like running water and electricity). A week or two of travel, however, is extremely stimulating.

      YES! I’m so glad that you can relate!!!! It is lovely but it’s just not the same as having your comforts around you!

    This list was not what I was expecting – but it was honest and offered some great insight, which makes it even better 🙂 thanks for sharing!

      Glad you liked it hun! I always like to be totally honest as I think a lot of travel bloggers only portray the best bits of travelling!!!
