My first trip outside of Europe was when I was 14 to Malaysia. It was here when I contracted the incurable travel bug! I was amazed by the culture, the food and the surroundings of Asia so when I had enough money in the bank to travel that’s exactly where I headed. At 21 I embarked on a tour through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Malaysia. Once I came home I realised I wanted more and after couple of years I was off again, this time to Australia. I worked my way around the country saving up money as I went. I then travelled into Indonesia then back to see old friends in Thailand and Cambodia. As I headed home I stopped off in Germany, Belgium and Holland before coming back to surprise my Mum on her birthday 11 months and 18 days after I left! Around 18 months later I got another itch so I decided to do something different and head to Ghana and volunteer as a teacher. My travels helped me create new memories, meet new people and expand my horizons which is exactly what we try to do at Turquoise.
