“One of my favorite luxuries in life is travel. Jet lag and lost baggage aside, it’s an incredible way to learn about other cultures, meet new people, broaden your horizons… and do some amazing shopping!” ~ Amanda Hearst
I’m actually not as much of a shopper as many of my friends. I don’t get a thrill from buying clothes, shoes or handbags and I don’t wear make up, so that rules out some of the popular categories. But I do love shopping for souvenirs on holiday, or browsing in second hand shops, especially those with lots of retro or vintage items.
My biggest spending indulgence is the travelling itself, the trips to explore another new place, culture and cuisine. Whether it’s a road trip, train journey or flight, the costs of travel, accommodation, food and experiences quickly add up. But the price is worth it for all the wonderful memories made. And I feel very fortunate to be in a position to be able to afford to travel, when so many people cannot.
Is travel one of your luxuries in life?
Whilst I’m not a huge fan of long-haul flying, I do love to look out of the window at the land or sea far below, or to watch the sun rise or set over the horizon.
