By all accounts I’m a pretty young guy who has lead what a good number of people would consider a privileged life. I am not about to deny it. I consider the ability to travel and see the world as a luxury that not everyone has the time or money to do. I’m not in a position to travel indefinitely but if I could I would! I’m happiest when I’m on the move and I feel so relaxed when just literally slotting into the world and watching every bit of it zoom past me; taking it all in at my own pace – preferably with a cold beer and good company.
It was July 2010 when I first entered the massive country that is India. I was only there for a short while; just over a week, but the country left a lasting impression. At the time I didn’t enjoy it much, however, upon reflection, I think India is one of the those countries that, when you look back on your time there you do actually want to return and experience just a little bit more of its hugely diverse culture. Something I don’t think I appreciated as much as I should have.
Everest Base Camp. The first of many camps leading to the highest mountain on Earth. The trip that got me there was easily one of the most amazing periods of my life. It sealed the deal with my love affair of travel and it has most definitely helped shape me into the person I am today. It’s something I look back fondly on and one that I constantly wish to relive.
