“I find that when travelling, I take on so many more challenges and do things I would never normally do, it makes me a bolder and braver person. I love making memories I will always treasure”

“Going away feeds my soul, I love finding places that make me want to stop for a moment and breathe it all in. It’s about creating memories that stand out in my mind, an escape from routine.”
