traveling alone
I spent my small savings, boarded a plane for London, and planned to make friends along the way. I ended up crying in a crumpled ball outside of an American Express office in Paris.
The list is based largely on where I thought was cool.
It wasn't just that I was getting a chance to see something incredibly rare and beautiful, a pair of birds with an amazing conservation story. It was also that I was instantly utterly besotted with them.
thought catalog
It can be easy just to do what everyone else wants to do rather than follow your own desires or dreams. If everyone else wants temples and you want museums, go to the museums. Keen to try local cuisine rather than pizza like your travel pals? Do it.
