So, as anyone who has read a few of these posts would know, for the last few years my partner in adventure has been my boyfriend, Ben. We’ve been friends for about eight years and together for about 3.
Well, as of yesterday we are no longer together. We’ve shared some amazing memories – many of those travel related! – but having been Ben’s first girlfriend, he’s decided to spend some time alone and figure out what exactly he wants to do in life. I totally get that, though I would be a liar if I said it didn’t hurt!
That said, I’m really excited for the opportunity – albeit one that has sort of been thrust upon me – to do a lot of things that I’ve always wanted to do but have never seemed to link up easily with Ben and I’s plans. Of course travel is very high on the list – I already have a trip booked to Africa! – but there’s a few other things too. I just moments ago submitted my application for a legal internship I’d been umming and aahing about for weeks, and as nerdy as it sounds, I am actually truly excited to have more time to work on a research paper I’ve been undertaking as part of my studies!
As for the travel plans… I really feel like the world is my oyster right now! The only problem is picking my next destination from a plethora of incredible places – I welcome any suggestions!
