How 'Girl Travels Planet' Began
I'm going to be completely honest with you, I was terrified. I had a rubbish start to the year 2017 and I decided I needed to get away on my own. Glass of wine in hand on Sunday 12th February 2017 I booked a flight leaving Tuesday 14th February 2017 to Bangkok, Thailand. It was probably the most spontaneous thing I had ever done and those that know me will tell you, I plan most things weeks if not months in advance.
The moment I got off the aeroplane in Bangkok and hopped in a taxi to my hotel, everything changed. Any fears that told me I couldn't travel on my own, or that I needed to go away with a friend drifted away. I wandered the streets in Sukhumvit, explored market stalls on Khao San road and ate weird and wonderful Thai delicacies with a new outlook. I knew this wouldn't be a one-off trip and that I would be travelling like this more often.
By Christmas 2017 I will have visited 6 countries and 8 cities most of which alone! On this blog I want to share with you my experiences and tips and hopefully inspire more people to travel the world solo or otherwise.
