What’s your favorite country to travel to and why?

My favorite so far has probably been India because it was just such a different experience and everyone there was just so friendly, and it was quite overwhelming but in a good way.

A lot of people were apprehensive about me traveling pretty much by myself, but it turned out to be the best experience because you learn so much about yourself and you learn to rely on yourself and your own company and get comfortable with yourself. I think everyone should experience it at least once in their lifetime.

I used to be really self-conscious about doing things by myself which I think everyone has a little bit of that embarrassment, but then you know, when you are relying upon your own company, you have to get over yourself a little bit. You can’t be thinking: “Oh I don’t want to do that, it’s a bit embarrassing”, “I can’t do that or ask that” You have to really become stronger and more confident within yourself.
