This view changed my life. I climbed hundreds of steps in Hang Múa, Vietnam, to see it. Looking out over the landscape, I knew travelling would always be part of who I am.
Sat in a chemo chair in 2014, I decided to make every day an adventure. I promised myself I'd find awe-inspiring moments, not wait for them to find me. I couldn’t plan ahead, so I created a travel wish list.
Travel gives me space. It gives me hope. It has expanded my horizons in ways I didn’t think possible. And, for that, I am grateful to the booking engines, tourist boards, tour operators, airlines, hotels and, most importantly, the people in the sector for making that possible.
Uncertainty is everywhere at a time when we can go nowhere. Lives threatened. Jobs at risk. Attractions closed. Hotels empty.
When I became Exec Director of Think Travel & Wanderlust, I wanted to help the industry that gave me hope at a time when I couldn’t find it for myself. That is what, faced with a global pandemic, I'm determined to do.
Our suitcases are empty, but our memories are full of the unforgettable travel experiences. So let's share them & fill our feeds with colour & hope. Join our #WishIWasThere campaign by posting a memory & tag us, and your fave travel brands.
We can't travel, but we can travel with kindness.
