Since the age of about 15, each time a birthday or Christmas rolled round, I would ask for contributions to the travel fund! As a youngster, after trips to Australia, Hong Kong and Thailand with my family, I soon realised that I had been badly bitten by the travel bug. Since then I have succumbed to wanderlust, the very strong or irresistible impulse to travel. Since my first trip to Korea aged 17 (the first place I went on my own), I have returned to Korea an additional fourteen times, I've made about ten trips to China, I've been to Japan twice, Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand twice, America and I've been all over Europe too. The opportunity to visit another country, to open my eyes and mind to another culture and language - well, that's the best gift I could receive. Image – Flickr / imkelsi
