Who is Travel and Curls?
Hey, I am Rachel (Rae) and I have big hair and love to travel! I am based in London and as stated previously I left my career within the Criminal Justice System to travel. Since the age of 18 I always promised myself two holidays a year and in 2015 I went on ten holidays, this is when I realised I need to take the opportunity to take a year out from working to travel. I was born in 1991 and have always done what I felt society told me to do. I went to school, college, university and started my career, by this point I felt trapped and always questioned is this what life is all about. For some it may be however I knew deep down this was not the case for me. I love meeting new people, tasting new food and visiting new destinations. I will start my biggest journey on the 22nd August 2016 where I will be going to Australia, Sydney. From there I would like to go to New Zealand and South East Asia. Who knows where I will end up (That’s the most exciting part!) but my aim in life is to visit at least one country in each continent.
Leaving my career was the scariest thing I could imagine however it is the BEST thing I have ever done. Let the travelling begin!
So here’s where I’ve been so far:
B – Belgium
C – Czech Republic (Prague), Cyprus (Aiya Napa x2)
D – Denmark
E – England
F – France (Paris, St-Remy-de-Provence)
G – Germany (Berlin)
H – Hungary (Budapest)
I – Italy (Rome)
M – Morocco (Marakech)
N – Netherlands (Amsterdam x3, Rotterdam)
P – Portugal (Algarve)
S – Spain (Gran Canaria, Costa Brava, Barcelona, Ibiza)
T – Turkey (Bodrum)
U – United Arab Emirates (Dubai)
V – Vatican City
W – Wales
Maybe one day I will be able to fill the alphabet… Watch this space!
