However, I know that those routes aren't for me, at least at the moment and so I'm going to take some time out to do the things I love, especially travel. Who knows the world might end in December 2012, so why not do whatever makes us happy? :)
If I can encourage some other people along the way to follow their dreams, or discover their new favourite place then all the better!!
My first recommendation would be to make a list of what you want to do and start checking off as many things as possible from it (no excuses!) I made mine on http://www.my50.com/ and it's a great motivator.
On a happy note, summer is well and truly here, but typically we're stuck inside studying (or trying to). Even so, it means less time until I can start my travels again, and also an excuse for a new wardrobe, on a very modest budget might I add. In the meantime, however, I will be writing about my recent travels and posting photos and tips as much as possible.
