When I packed my life into a bag in 2011 and jetted off to South America with no plan, trekking the Inca trail was the only part of my trip I'd arranged before leaving home. I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. A trek that you need to secure a booking on three months prior to arrival? That must be something - and it really was. A majestic place one must experience to believe!
Another winter flickers past. We’re about to turn the calendar to September. Did you set new years resolutions? ...Eight months ago? Or perhaps your rolling your eyes at the fact I even mentioned them. Statistics show that most people give up their resolutions 2-3 weeks into the New Year and only 8-10% of people actually follow through with them. That seems quite a high number if you ask me.
I remember boarding the plane with no idea what I was doing. In February I'd booked the flight. A few short months later I'd packed my life into a small bag and completely turned my world on its head. I'd convinced myself I was just going on a travel journey, this turned in three and a half years away.
