Photo Diary: A Recap of 2015

I think I can say with confidence that I’ve been pretty lucky this year. I have managed to visit 7 amazing cities, crossing a number of places off my travel list in the process. Somehow I have managed this while maintaining a full time job and tending to my savings. Prioritising my travels over more frivilous self indulgences like flash clothing and fancy dinners is important. Exploring colourful cities and sampling crazy different culture in every corner of this weird world comes first, at least for now…

Us Brits take for granted how lucky we are to be able to zip off to anywhere in Europe at a very low cost. Thanks to budget airlines like Ryan Air & Easy Jet, in the last 12 months I have managed to visit Spain, Hungary and Poland for less than £100 (return).

Despite being rather costly and failing to stay out there as long as I’d hoped, my trip to Canada was hands down the best experience of my life so far. I fully intend of revisiting that beautiful country as soon as I can afford it – if they’ll have me back!?

2015 has undoubtedly been my favourite year so far, which means 2016 kinda has a lot to live up to now…

Up next Vietnam! What you got for me South East Asia?…
