I love Paris – that’s one of the truest things I know in my life. So given the opportunity to spend a day there this summer after visiting Disneyland Paris, I jumped at the chance.

Having spent years adventuring with my family and school, it was finally time for my first solo adventure – accompanied by my best friend of course!

Having spent weeks researching, planning and choosing our holiday we eventually handed over £385 each in exchange for ten days of sunshine and happiness – which seemed like a pretty good deal!
Iceland had 1,289,140 visitors into the country in 2015, greatly outnumbering their population of 333,668 (at the time of posting anyway!)

We’ve done it all; beach breaks, camping adventures, city wanders and Disney dreams. However as I grow older, there is less opportunity for me to get away with them. So I took 2015, a year of birthdays and anniversaries, as an excuse for us to adventure across the pond.
As part of my Journalism degree I have an assignment where I have to write a series of 4 blog posts. I have chosen to do mine on the topic of learning to travel independently. I will be posting one of these each week throughout March and will update the links below as I go along.
