Sister Story - Megan

Name: Megan 

Age: 22

About:  I have been working to save money for this trip for a while, when I return home, I will most likely work again to save up for my next big adventure! 

Why did you decide to travel? I have always wanted to see as much of the world as possible. It’s too big and beautiful to miss out on. 

Where do you come from? Wales

Where do you want to go next? Possibly inter-rail around Europe or Canada

What is your number one tip for travelling? Be flexible and go with the flow. It’s good to have a plan but sometimes things happen that can’t be helped so don’t stress and take it all as it comes. Enjoy it! 

What has been your biggest challenge to overcome?  I’m quite a quiet person so coming out of my shell a bit more was quite hard at first especially with all the new people you meet every day

What do you miss about home? My dogs! And family of course. Oh, and a sunday roast! 

What have you learned about yourself? Before i came i spent so much time working to save up the money that it made me desperate to get away because i was so stressed. I’ve definitely learnt to slow down and take in more from life. 

Favourite Quote? Not all those who wander are lost. 

Favourite new thing? (i.e. food you have tried, skill, tradition, place) Favourite new place would be maybe Queenstown in New Zealand or Byron bay in Australia. 

What advise would you give to other girls wanting to travel? Try and find someone or a good group of people to stick with, especially in the bigger cities or on nights out. Take a good moisturiser and conditioner. Showering or being in water and sun every day will take its toll.
