Today! There is a very important announcement as Seeing The World In Steps finally made it to ONE HUNDRED CITIES!!!!! This means that I have been to 100 different places in the world! 100 different places on planet earth! I would just like to write something to commemorate this special occasion and moment of my life! Travelling has been my passion and have always been my aim in life! Due to the recent pandemic, it certainly gave me a recharge, a reboot, changing my perception on how these are not easily achievable. In a good way, it made me realise how important travelling is and how precious it is to me! Writing this right now from my hotel room in Paris makes it even more amazing! Let me bring you a little recap of my journey to the big 100!
First Ever City and Country
As far as I remember and this is also a popular story from my parents and grandmother, I was fortunate enough to be able to travel when I was 3 years old. They keep telling me how great it was when we were in Shenzhen, China. How lovely it was to get the sweetest lychee since we were travelling right in the season. With that Shenzhen can be considered as the first place in the world Seeing The World In Steps went to! I will try to dig out a picture, if I even have one.
