Solo Female Travelling

My mother recently went travelling to Canada, on her own for the first time in my life. My Dad isn’t big on travelling and doesn’t like to fly, so in the past, mum and I always travelled together. The two of us have been to Europe, Canada, America, Fiji, Australia, Hawaii and many other amazing places in our trips abroad and loved discovering new places.

With the hubby into his technology and gadgets and being that we now live out of this new space, we chill, eat, drink, work, cook and play from this living space and guess what?
