These were the kind of places I would read about in books or see in movies but couldn’t believe were real. My first trip to Europe was when I was 9 years old, on a Family trip to England, Scotland, France and Greece. It was the first time I had really been out of Africa and my dream of seeing these magical places with their old buildings and dramatic landscapes was finally a reality. This curiosity grew into a passion and need for travel in my life and I longed for the day when I would finish school and head off and see the world with a huge backpack and my best friend. I did exactly that and traveled for 6 months around New Zealand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Fiji.
I have since traveled to many amazing corners of Europe such as the Czech Republic, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Ireland to name a few but I am always drawn to the warm buzz of European cities that I always dreamed of as a child, and the dramatically beautiful Mediterranean Coast that is so different from the tropical waters of East Africa where I grew up.
