“If travelling was free, you’d never see me again.”
Twenties is the age of learning, discovering new things, self-exploration and deciding what we want to do with our lives. It is during this time that we learn how to live life.
Back-packing in Europe is one of the most fulfilling and satisfying experiences ever. You visit some of the quaintest places on Earth, meet different people, share your stories and make good friends. And if you’re lucky, fall in love with a firang too. You can do everything in this age that you can’t do later once you’re older and grumpier so what are you waiting for?
