My Year Of Travel: 2019

My Year Of Travel: 2019

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.

Here is my year of travel for 2019:

My first solo trip of 2018: Lisbon

My first solo trip of 2018: Lisbon

Natas, sangria, street art and stunning architecture. These are just a few reasons why anyone would fall in love with Lisbon.

I’ve been obsessed with Lisbon since I’d seen my fellow blogger, Maya’s beautiful pictures and vlog (check out her blog).

So when I saw that Ryanair was doing deals, there was no hesitation at all and at the end of January/beginning of February, I finally got to cross Lisbon off my bucket list!

So, did Lisbon live up to my expectations? Hell to the yes!
