I caught the travel bug when I went to Barcelona for a day trip. I was 17 and in the middle of a package holiday .... which was to be one of my last! Three years later I embarked on a month-long Interrail trip around Europe taking in 8 countries and 17 destinations on the way. After leaving uni, I backpacked round the world.
Now in a stable, 'normal' job, my travelling is somewhat limited. Plus I am now married with a child, so travelling takes on a completely different perspective ! I still love visiting new places and new countries, however with limited funds (and a 15 month old in tow) we are learning to appreciate the British Isles much more. I still get frustrated that there is so much world out there to see and am now planning long distance trips for my silver wedding anniversary, rather than in the next 6 months!
