I think it certainly helped me grow and be more accepting and tolerant of others and lead to a deep respect of the world and our environment.
As I've got older the inevitable responsibilities of being an adult set in, the travels have become less but perhaps more meaningful. After a travelling hiatus of over 4 years (apart from family holidays with my daughters) mostly due to some terrible life events. In summer this year, after reconnecting with my childhood friend Gemma Nicholl we found ourselves at similar stages in our lives and through our mutual love of travelling decided what we needed to get over recent trials and tribulations was a trip. We looked at anywhere and everywhere. There were no rules. After a couple of months of deliberation we decided to go back to the classic, drive through France in my campervan. On reflection even though I'd done this trip many, many times I could never think of a time when I didn't love France and Northern Spain. I was itching to go back, Gemma had never been to France so it was a done deal.
So, to get this travel page rolling here isFrance 2019I hope you enjoy!
