Well here's a little story time for you about how I discovered that I want to travel more. About two years ago, when I just finished high school, I went to a uni that I despised. I basically went through a really rough time of feeling depressed by doing things that were only making me feel unhappy. I had panic attacks nearly every day before going to university, so I quickly decided that it was time for me to choose me. I decided to quit that particular uni and give myself a break from all things related to uni. I decided to take a half a year to feel like me again. To feel happy again.
During that half year that I would like to call my 'gap year' I discovered that I live in such an amazing town with gorgeous architecture and great history. When I was younger I never really seemed to be impressed by my hometown, Amsterdam was better. Amsterdam had better architecture, I was amazed by Amsterdam. - I still am, but what I'm trying to say is that I started to appreciate the little things in my hometown The Hague, like you can see on this instagram picture, which was the Monday after I decided to quite uni.
Now that I finally am starting to notice and appreciate pretty things like architecture and history in The Hague, I feel like I want to see the history and architecture in other countries. I want to soak in as many different cultures, historical buildings and tales as I possibly can and it all starts today.
It all starts today by officially writing down all of my travel bucket list destinations, to fulfill my dreams. Some destinations on this bucket list are because of family history, others because I am impressed by the culture, architecture and history.
