Not my usual type of blog post but an important one nonetheless. I wrote in my bio that I would share the highlights and lowlights of my travels, so here it goes.

Back in December I took my first overnight solo trip in ages. Last year I was reflecting on how I haven’t really traveled on my own. I’ve done day trips across the UK and to Paris which I really enjoy, and the only time I can think of where I went away on my own was to New York City. I was living in Canada and went for a few days in December to soak in Christmas in NYC. It’s a fond memory but that was about ten years ago. And when I was reflecting last year on a solo trip, I was thinking the more long haul, ‘I took a year off to travel’ type countries. Far away, new culture, new friends etc.

Living in the outskirts of London and being a train away from central, London staycations were never top of the list for me. That was until the pandemic hit and travel plans were constantly changing or being cancelled. We decided to try a London staycation in June 2021 and loved the experience so much that we did it again at a different hotel the following year. I’ve mainly done Airbnb for travelling and have stayed in the most unique, cosiest, sketchiest, scenic accommodations, so when it came to finding the right type of hotel in London, character and quirk was a must for me.

Now that my OCI (overseas citizenship of India) card has come in, I plan to make many more trips to India. This trip was for a friend’s wedding so while Goa was never really on the cards for me, it seemed like the perfect excuse to visit.

I very recently posted about my day trip to Paris as it’s one of my favourite cities to visit. Every time is different, and this time I went with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We visited Paris a few times when we were younger so the tourist bits were all done. The plan was to roam different neighbourhoods, eating and drinking whatever we fancied.

I absolutely *love* England. I’m really starting to explore the country and all the quirky accommodations that come with different destinations. I’ve wanted to go to Dorset for a while now as I’ve seen lots of photos. Durdle Door, the most photographed landmark that’s part of the Jurassic Coast, was just as nice as I imagined.
