This episode is about:

Answering the question 'How to know if travelling is right for you?'
Travelling is right for everyone – Travelling is what you make of it.

Find out your travelling style

My travel style is a short term planner and going with the flow
Since I started travelling, so many and exciting opportunities have come to me

Travel is 100% about self-discovery

I learnt I’m really confident
I learnt that people liked me – this was a really silly belief that I had before I went travelling
I learnt to be really independent – I am the youngest child and was always
When I first went travelling it was so scary. But within a few days I became confident

Finding you style and what makes you feel good and what travelling means to you, that is what travelling is.

Self-discovery starts in the planning stages

Decide what type of traveller you want to be
Know what you like and don’t like
Remember you are on a journey. A journey of self-discovery
