Top ten lessons learned in travelling the world for ten years

Full disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. ?


Today, July 10th, is my 31st birthday! It is also the day that I decided, exactly 10 years ago, to set off on my travels with no definite date to return “home”. Home is now wherever I lay my hat at the end of the day.

To celebrate this “travelversary” I have created a video that I can truly be proud of, to represent those 10 years, which you can see above.

As you can imagine, this is the long-awaited follow up to my 29 life lessons learned in 8 years post, that has been read almost 2 million times, which I wrote 2 years ago at my 8 year travelversary. These 10 lessons are (mostly) different though, so definitely check it out! To make it much more interesting, I had help to edit it professionally and included the absolute best videos and photos from my entire time on the road!

My birthday request is for you to please share it on your Facebook wall (or on your favourite alternative social media platform), so that more friends can check it out! This present doesn't cost you a cent, only about 5 seconds or so of clicking ^_^ and is very much appreciated! To share it, just click this link and then under the video you'll see a “share” option, with the top social media sites to share it on.

Alternatively, copy and paste this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RtGmqaM3Zo to your wall and the link will be created automatically. I'd really love it if lots of people checked it out, because I think these lessons can help inspire others interested in travel and life lessons in general!

As well as this, make sure to watch it yourself, and let me know what you think of it on Youtube comments, or here below. Thanks so much!!
