What does travel mean to me?
My parents taught me (and continue to teach me!) to savour life. Every whine was met with a gentle rebuke: I complained about the swell of my calves and I was told I was lucky to be able to walk.
Since travelling around the world, through some of the very poorest nations, in 2010-11, I saw first-hand how lucky I was. I believe that life is measured by what we can get out of it. And I want to get as much from it as possible.
Time is ticking… don’t waste it.
