Clara H 2010 Travel Adventures in a nutshell.
This is the post I have been working on, searching through my travel photo archives, picking out the best pictures that best represents my 2010 travel adventures. I spent a good time reminiscing while looking at them and found some really cool pics too. Photo heavy post but un-related to nails. Hehe. I DO have a life outside of nails guys :p
First, at the beginning of the year my hair went from this…
Big regret -.-”
But anyhow, even though with much lesser hair, I went on to have much more fun in Phuket and Krabi where I drove a manual old school 4WD (with no proper handbrakes, I was quite nervous on slopes actually) for the first time in my life. Did zany things, roasted under the sun, island hopped, snorkeled, rode on horses etc. Quite a ride actually!
And then came my Australia trip. I was there for a month and was pretty amazing. What made this trip so different from the rest of the trips is that i went alone. At this point in the year, I lost a ‘friend’ and a was in a complicated and flailing relationship so i decided i needed a break from it all. I did however, meet up with some friends who happened to be there the same time i was, what a coincidence! I did make sure to be covered with the best international insurance, I knew I was going to travel alone so I had to be prepared!
I booked my tickets 3 days prior to the trip so it was pretty last minute for a month long trip.This trip was life-changing for me, it altered my mindset and made me realize i had so much going for me and how blessed i am. One thing I did that i’m particularly proud of was going on the Great Ocean Road trip on my own, the scenery was mind-blowing and being there alone is a feeling that can’t rival any other. I highly recommend traveling alone and especially doing the tour while you’re still single. Then again I’m a pretty spontaneous person by nature (I’ve booked last minute tickets to Japan while I was Bangkok and took the flight the next day after I landed back in Singapore. It was winter in Tokyo so imagine the scuffle packing winter clothing haha) I was in Brisbane and Melbourne for the whole month. You know what they say about last minute events, they’re the best
Shall end this post with one of my personal favorites. I love the photograph I’ve taken during sunset on the way back from Byron Bay
Much love xx
