I live to travel, and aim to visit as many countries as I can across the world, so far i'm up to 50 which I think is pretty good but there are many more to go!
Having caught the travel bug during my university days, I have since visited over 50 countries across 6 continents. I enjoy combining my trips with attending major sporting events; from FIFA World Cups at Brazil and Russia to Major League Baseball in USA, I absolutely love the atmosphere at these events.
Favourite places I've been
There’s almost nothing more American than eating a hotdog while watching a baseball game at a ballpark. Learn the words to “take me out to the ballgame” and sing them out loud during the break at the 7th innings!
Omiyage or 'travel souvenir' is big in Japan and each region specializes in some forms of food items which make ideal souvenirs. From Tokyo Banana to Niigata sake, they make excellent gifts for friends and family back home.
Although there are other (faster) methods to cross the Bosporus in Istanbul, sipping çay on a rocking ferry while marvelling at the seagulls with wonderful Istanbul skyline as backdrop is still the best way to travel between Europe and Asia.
