This beautifully sums up my thoughts on travel. Always explore and learn about the place you’re visiting and go live a life full of adventures!

Macau Tower first opened in December 2001 and since then has become one of Macau’s best known sights and a focus of its skyline. The tower stands at 338m and has something for everyone, from shopping and cinema to dining with an incredible view and extreme thrills.
The Observation Deck is up 223m and offers a 360 degree view of the area. From here, you can see all of Macau Peninsula, Taipa, Coloane and across the Pearl River to mainland China. It’s a great deck for snapping photos, and for the milder thrill seeker, you can walk along the glass floor, looking WAY down to the ground below.
For the more adventurous thrill seeker, head up to the Adventure Deck at 233m. Here you can walk around the edge with Skywalk. Plunge towards the earth with SkyJump or try the Guinness World Record holder for highest Bungy Jump. For the truly extreme, there is Tower Climb, where you can ascend to the very top of the tower.
If you prefer to leave the thrills to someone else, head to the 60th floor for a buffet with an incredible view at the 360 Cafe. Here, you can watch the bungy jumpers go sailing by as you enjoy your dinner!
Growing up, every time I would see a map or hear stories about other people’s travel adventures, I would dream of the day I too could get out into the world and see it all for myself. Now, all these years and countries later, whenever I see a map I still stop to take a look a dream about where I’ll visit next.
As my travelling grandma used to say ‘Travel gets into your blood.’
I’m pretty sure mine starts in the heart and makes it’s way through my body with every beat.
As always, my goal for 2017 is to travel and check more countries and experiences off my life to-do list.
Happy New Year! Wishing you all a 2017 full of travel and new adventures!! Xo
This is one of my favourite travel quotes and as I’ve just set out on a two week Asian Adventure it feels fitting. As much as I love reading about travel there really is no substitute for actually getting out and seeing the world for yourself. It really is a remarkable place!
Growing up, I was always excited to go to Grandma’s house and see photos and hear about her latest trip. She saw the world and inspired me to do the same. A lifelong teacher, she always told me that travel was the best education you could give yourself and encouraged me to go explore and learn about different cultures and appreciate the similarities and differences found along the way. Only while immersing yourself in someone else’s way of life do you realize how alike we truly are. Thank you for instilling this love of travel and need to constantly be educating myself and Happy birthday! I hope everyone up there enjoys your travel stories as much as I always did! Xo
