Before I moved to the UK, I was pretty adventurous when it comes to travelling even venturing as far as Syria (we are talking 20 years ago here so not something I would recommend to do in the current political climate).

But then I developed a serious aversion to flying and that combined with small kids and two more hindrance than helpful husbands meant holidays were restricted to visiting family.

Once I started flying again in 2015, I rediscovered the joys of travelling and now I get itchy feet if there isn’t at least a couple of flights lined up on my airlines apps. I might not go to exotic places just yet, I’m still not a great flyer but I am working my way towards it.
