I hope you are all great after an amazing Easter weekend!
We had a really great time and five amazing days visiting my family in England! Even though I was technically going home, the whole weekend felt like a holiday. I felt so excited all last week in the build up to going away and it was amazing to have long, fun filled days together without having to think about responsibilities or work. We went out for lunch, watched the rugby with friends, ate amazing food, caught up with family at our big party on Easter Sunday and had long walks in the countryside. It was so much fun!
And it reminded me of the main reason I love traveling – because it is good for the soul! Having a packed out work schedule, a long to-do list and a whole load of boring responsibilities can sometimes mean we get stuck in the day to day stuff and forgot to make the most out of life. Having an exceptional and beautiful life is something I am always working for and traveling reminds me of how important that is. So just in case you needed a little reminder or wanted some inspiration to go traveling, here is my list of why traveling is good for the soul…

Traveling opens your mind to new cultures, ideas and ways of thinking.
It allows you to build amazing memories with new people and places.
Traveling gives you the freedom to make the most of every opportunity and fill your day with exciting new experiences.
It can push you out of your comfort zone, boost your confidence and help you discover all the amazing things you can achieve.
With all the incredible experiences and challenges you are faced with, traveling helps you to get prospective and give you inspiration on the kind of life you want to live.
Traveling teaches you to live in the moment, enjoy every experience to its fullest and let go of negativity from the past.
Traveling lets you chill out and take a break from our crazy, fast paced lives…
which can give you the head space you need to reflect on your life and feel inspired to make some positive changes for the future.
And it teaches you to trust your instincts, your ability and your ambitions and goals, which leads to a full and happy life.
I decided pretty early on that I wanted my life to be adventurous, beautiful, exciting and interesting and traveling is one of my favorite ways to do that. I hope it does the same for you!
