This year is a little different from previous years as I’ve graduated from university and the world is now my oyster! Some would say it’s time to take the next step into adulthood, also known as full time employment, however my mind and soul just aren’t ready for that yet. I can’t seem to get my head around working 9-5 everyday for an indefinite amount of time… and how would I manage with only four weeks annual leave per year?!
In February I travelled to Vietnam for three weeks with two of my friends (post coming soon!), and I told everyone that when I got home I would get a ‘real’ job. So naturally I arrived home and hopped on the good old internet to search for cheap flights and deals. I ended up booking a five-week trip to Europe at the end of May…oops!
I will be flying into London and catching up with friends in the UK, before doing a 16 day Contiki tour through England, Scotland and Ireland. I can’t wait to experience the history and culture of these wonderful countries, especially since my last name is Irish! I’m then flying to Dubrovnik to do a sailing trip through Croatia for a week, which is something that’s been on my bucket list for a while. Croatia was one of my favourite countries in Europe and I am so excited to go back and explore it a bit more.
Later in the year I’m considering getting a working holiday visa to the US if I’m eligible (they have them for recent graduates and students), or perhaps Canada or the UK. But, knowing me I will probably change my mind a thousand times! If anyone has any tips or advice on what to do with my life, please feel free to share them with me 🙂
