A Lifetime of Experiences



I have had experienced many great things in my life and through my travels over the years and I thought it was worthwhile sharing my favourite experiences and achievements here with you.
Sometimes it is worthwhile to take a step back and look at what you have already achieved rather that worry about the future. It keeps you grounded and you can see how far you have come.
Every little experience you have in your lifetime adds up and contributes towards the person that you become, so it is important to treasure these moments and pat yourself on the back for achieving them no matter how big or small. I hope that some of the things on this list inspire you to go out there into the world and create your very own list of life changing and amazing experiences!
