It’s The People That Make Travelling Special Not The Places

I have done a lot of travelling in the past few years. Since the end of 2012, I have been abroad in some form or another.

People Make The Places

Of all the places I have travelled to since 2012, New Zealand is my favourite. It is a long flight from the UK, it took me two whole days to get there, but it is worth it.

However, I never experienced this with New Zealand. I loved all the places that I visited!

As beautiful as New Zealand is, I’m not sure how much I would have enjoyed without the friends I made over there. I spent a year living and working in the country, and made some lifelong friends while there.

The Takeaway

One of the downsides of social media is that it has led to people treating travel as a tick box exercise. While I understand the allure of wanting to visit as many countries as possible, this isn’t travelling for me.
