#WeTravel - Rachel

Rachel, UK

“One of my first holidays I remember was to Spain with two of my childhood best friends and their mum when I was six. I remember wanting to buy every flamenco dress and I remember I cried because I got spaghetti bolognaise on my white one. I also picked a flower to put in my hair and it turned out to be a chilli plant so I had chilli all over my face too.

My ultimate destination would be to the Galapagos Islands to see the birds and all sorts. I’m a huge animal lover, and I’ve always wanted to do one of those volunteer programs where you help the animals that have been attacked or abandoned.

I’d never considered living in other countries, but I think being here in Canada has opened my eyes quite a bit. I’ve slipped into the way of life so quickly and met so many great people which I didn’t think would happen so soon. I think the next year will really determine what I’m going to do.”
