Hello, welcome to Live Large Voyage! My name is Beth and I am a travel addict
Travelling and exploring new places has always been my passion. Ever since my first major trip to Australia at the ripe old age of 8, I developed an intense desire to see as many new and different places as possible.
I currently spend most of my days writing essays, reading books (+ at the occasional party) as a third-year student at university. However, aside from that my spare time is mainly filled with either planning my next adventure (+ convincing people to join me) or I’m off exploring a new country.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Oscar Wilde
I just had to include a cheesy quote! I deeply relate to it though, as I don’t believe we should just settle and get by in life. This is something I am often very guilty of and it is easier said than done. However, there are so many opportunities out there and so much of the world to see. As the famous line goes, the only one stopping you is you!
Travelling to new places is a time where I feel I am truly living, it constantly inspires me to work harder and to make sure I stop just ‘getting by’ in life. This blog is one way I hope to pull myself of this routine and inspire others to just pursue whatever makes you happy in life.
Travelling is an activity I believe everyone who has the fortune of doing so should go for! It has so many positives and can further you as a person in many different ways. However, to me personally, travelling is:
- A chance to escape and have a break from ‘reality’ – away from stress, pressures and personal struggles
- A time where I feel I am the best version of myself
- An opportunity to meet new interesting people and witness cultures different to our own
- The building of tolerance and acceptance towards different types of people. Becoming more open-minded.
- The realisation of how big our world actually is and how many opportunities there really are out there
- Motivating and inspiring – knowing with a bit of hard work I can continue to see so many wonderful places
As most people who love travelling can probably relate to, once you’ve visited one place, you just want to keep exploring! It installs a curiosity where you want to keep challenging yourself!
Therefore, I have set myself a mission to explore every corner of the globe – 11 countries down 184 to go!!
What does this blog offer?
