Appreciate your own company

Travelling opens you up to meeting so many different kinds of people that it allows you to see things in a different light. Watch how someone else handles a situation and learn from them. You wouldn’t meet that 80-year-old Australian surfer and learn his ways of living back home in Manchester, would you? Meeting a variety of personalities will allow you to think outside of the box and challenge your own ways of thinking but travelling isn’t always about who you meet. It can be spending days alone with your thoughts and really thinking about how you are coping without your family and friends back home and really learning how to adult. And there’s nothing like plunging head first out of your comfort zone to do so.

Top Things To Do In Manchester

My first visit to the city of Manchester in United Kingdom was in April 2017. Getting out of Piccadilly Station that day, having just spent two hours in the incredibly efficient and fast Virgin trains plying every few minutes between London and Manchester, I had no idea that I was about to take my first step into a city that would soon become my home. It was a cold, windy and wet day but outside the station, Mancunians, as the city’s inhabitants are lovingly called, milled about happily, seemingly oblivious to the weather.
