No matter who I am speaking to, wherever I am in the world… when I tell them that I am a solo traveller I always get looked at like I’m crazy! I also always get the same response “But your so young!”, “Your so brave!”, “Your so crazy!”, “Aren’t you scared walking around on your own”, “That’s not safe!”… these statements really annoy me and to be honest I get most of these from my family whenever I tell them I am going travelling!
I always get asked by people on social media who see my photographs, “what camera do you use?”. I love photography, it is a huge passion of mine but as it is only a hobby of mine I try not to spend too much money on my equipment. I have three main cameras that I use to take pictures with and I use them for different locations. These cameras are; DSLR Nikon D5300, Gopro Hero 4+ silver edition and my Samsung Galaxy S8 mobile phone. First off i will talk about my Nikon D5300 and the different lens i use with it.
When traveling around the world one of the most important things to get right is the type of luggage you take with you. I personally think this can make or break your experience. For example, I visited Thailand last year and as I was only planning on staying in one place I took a large hard shell suitcase with me. This turned out to be a terrible choice because as soon as I arrived in Thailand and waited to collect my bag in the airport it turned up missing a wheel! This meant that it was not able to stand up straight and fell over all the time! I also decided to visit an Island called Koh Samet for a few days before I left, lugging this suitcase onto a speed boat and around the island was not an easy job! So now i have multiple different bags for a variety of trips and I would like to share these with you and hope that this helps when trying to decide what bag to purchase or take with you!
