Sister Story - India

Name: India Rose 

Age: 19

About: I have a desire to travel and I LOVE the outdoors, nature, writing, new places and meeting people with completely different and inspiring mindsets.

Why did you decide to travel? I was on the beach in Abersoch, Wales and the Sun was shining, I felt so happy and thought this is what I want to do for a year, at least explore the earth and discover the unknown.

Where do you come from? Liverpool, England.

Where do you want to go next? Bali then NZ!

What is your number one tip for travelling? Don't think about it, just go, follow your heart.

What has been your biggest challenge to overcome? Stepping out of my comfort zone each time I move to a new place.

What do you miss about home? Hugs from my family.

What have you learnt about yourself? I don't need a lot to be happy!

Favourite Quote? "All that glitters is not gold, all who wander are not lost." J.R. R Tolkien

Favourite new thing? (i.e. food you have tried, skill, tradition, place) Sushi. Found a love for rock climbing which I had never tried before! As well as appreciating hiking and discovering new places much more.

What advice would you give to other girls wanting to travel? Remember it's ok to go solo. I also didn't realise how much fun hostels can be! Originally I wouldn't stay in a hostel in Australia now I'm so happy I finally did, you meet the most interesting people with all different stories and adventures to share. Always keep an open mind! ...and just book that plane ticket!
