December was a crazy busy month for me, so I never got a chance to really reflect on 2019.
If you asked me to describe 2019 in word, I would probably say “mehhhh”. But when I really think about it, yes there were many lows, but there were also many highs.
Just to name a few achievements (which I still can’t believe myself), in 2019, I had my first two press trips, worked with quite a few brands and successfully organised my first event for my other platform Black Travel Creators (check us out on Twitter and Instagram).
I’m also blessed to have been able to travel a few times last year. I revisited a few countries I had previously been to and I was able to cross off a few countries off my travel bucket list.
This time last week, I celebrated my birthday in Portugal on a solo trip.
A few years ago, when I first started solo travelling, I kind of gave up on the idea of getting any good pictures of myself while travelling. I’m hella shy and awkward, so I’m not really a fan of asking a stranger to take a picture for me. And the few times I did, let’s just say that you won’t be seeing the pictures.
Fortunately for me, I met bae (AKA my tripod) and since then my photography game has been upgraded.
