Since Covid-19 has absolutely buggered all of my travel for the upcoming months, I thought it was a good time to reflect on some of my favourite trips over the years.
If you don't know, anyone with a location-enabled phone probably has a storied location history stored on Google maps. Every time your phone makes a handshake with a location, Google logs it. Terrifying privacy implications aside, it does create a very cool, very accurate timeline of your travel.
So post your timelines and let us know what your highlights have been, and where you're looking to visit next!
Mine is fairly accurate from around 2012 onwards. Sadly lacks my trips to the north of Scotland and Ireland as a kid.
I feel like over the last few years I've done a huge amount of travel, and yet looking at this there is still so much world still to see. Biggest highlight for me has probably been my two months in Tokyo. What an incredibly warm and welcoming people the Japanese are.
Also absolutely adored my recent trip to Sydney. It felt a lot like my home of Glasgow, albeit with a lot more sun.
Next on the list for me is a toss-up between Thailand, New Zealand and South Africa. I've got a great friend in Johannesburg who keeps inviting me to crash on their couch, Thailand is mainly because I love the cuisine and NZL is because every Kiwi I meet is a bloody legend.
Also definitely need to hit up Argentina some time soon.
