Reality Check

‘ I wrote this in on Thursday when I landed back in the UK but I forgot to post it’

I’ve got a completely spontaneous, quite a ramble of a post today. I am currently writing this on my iPad Notes in the car on my way back from Gatwick up to Yorkshire listening to relentless Christmas bargains and cheesy adverts on the radio. I’ve had like a mini epiphany (if that is the right word?) and I just wanted to write down what I was feeling. I’ve been away in the Caribbean for 4 months, I’ve seen a few different islands and met such a variety of people living in these third world countries. And you know when people say ‘travel broadens the mind’, it is so so true! I feel like coming back to this consuming nation, sometimes you forget what really is important, and visiting these places has really opened my eyes and made me realise.

Driving on the M25 feeling like a robot in a Black Mirror episode. Being in the Caribbean while the devastating outcomes of hurricane Irma and Maria were people’s reality, and talking to evacuees and people that lost their homes and businesses, it’s really made me think about what’s important. I know this may be a bit of a deep post for some people but I just think you have to explore as much as you can as I believe it can be a bit of a reality check, and that’s why I love travelling so much. Like don’t get me wrong, I like things and I like to shop but having possessions doesn’t stop me going anyway or doing anything, it’s just a luxury we have and should appreciate. It’s just a completely different world. That’s all.

Never stop exploring ~ Always discovering ~ Meet people and help people
