The most wonderful thing about traveling is you develop an open mind and a fantastic appreciation for diverse lifestyles. You get to immerse yourself in different cultures, languages, food, art and lifestyle. It makes you realise that the world is such a big place. The problems and challenges that seem so big in your day to day to life, become so small when you travel and see how massive the world is. People have to go through so much more. They face difficulties that we cannot even imagine. We always need to be grateful and thankful for what we have, and the lives we lead.
My favourite travel memory is visiting the Vatican City in Rome and the Louvre in Paris. It was so beautiful, it brought me to tears.
My favourite shopping places are Hong Kong, (the designer stores are fantastic) Istanbul, (you can pick up the most beautiful lamp shades, mosaic candle holders, unique pieces of jewellery, among the clothes and shoes) Italy (fashion, fashion and more fashion), Dubai (perfumes, handbags and beautiful home-ware) and Bangkok (gorgeous dresses, however if you put on a little bit of weight, they won't fit you anymore. Dresses are made to very small sizes).
My favourite relaxation spots were Switzerland and Santorini. Switzerland for the peaceful surroundings, the mountains and the long walks that you can take while you breathe in the fresh air. Santorini for the beautiful beach and warm people.
The country I am most obsessed with is Italy. Having visited Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples and Sorrento. This is the country that I would love to go back to. (To see Milan and Tuscany) The delicious food (for some reason, the gorgeous girls can eat A Lot and still stay so tiny and lean), people (what warm people, they just greet you on the street as you walk by), fashion (insane fashion!), art (it's so amazing how all those sculptures and paintings remain preserved), buildings and streets... they fueled my creative soul and made me feel so alive.
