Globally, 2017 has been a bit of a dumpster fire but personally it’s been a pretty good year. Especially when it comes to travel. I got to visit four new countries, met great new people, and had some amazing experiences I’ll never forget. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite moments with you.
You know that saying, “I was so hungry, I could eat a horse.” Well, I was. And I did. During my time in Slovenia actually. And no, it wasn’t that weird. Yes, I would eat horse meat again.
“I’m trying to get to Comino.” “You can get there from Gozo.” “I don’t have a ticket. I need a ticket.” “It’s ok. Just go, the gate is closing. Go.” I was still half asleep from the hour long morning bus ride so I just followed the crowd. I followed the crowd off the bus. I followed the crowd into the terminal. I followed the crowd onto the ferry. I followed the crowd to Gozo. And that’s how I found myself accidentally island hopping in Malta.
Whether you go carry-on only or you check a bag, if you’re taking a long haul flight you’re also going to want a smaller cabin bag to tote all your in-flight essentials. Getting this right can mean the difference between a comfortable flight and being miserable.
