It seems to be my habit to book a big holiday well in advance. Some people book an international holiday a few weeks out and that makes me very anxious. By the time I get on the plane I need to know I’ve got flights everywhere I need them and most accommodation sorted.

The upcoming European adventure was no different. I booked my tickets right at the very start of November last year, nine months in advance of the actual trip.

The countdown is now at 6 weeks. At this time of day in 42 days I’ll be at the airport, checked in and enjoying an overpriced beer at the airport, doing some serious people watching. I mean, have you even travelled if you haven’t fallen in love from a distance with a handsome stranger in the airport? The answer is no. Try it. You sit there and you spot a gorgeous man and from there you imagine you are off on a romantic global adventure.

In my head I’m going to take beautiful travel photos and record hilariously witty but gorgeous vlogs of my travels while I’m away. Travel and landscape photography is not my strong suit and I’m such a lazy vlogger but I’ll do my best in between eating delicious local foods, getting naked and hopefully making the acquaintance of lovely handsome strangers.
