For the past month, I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect getaway. I hadn’t been on holiday for more than a year and I was in dire need of one. After a number of lengthy discussions with a friend who lives in Europe, we decided on a gem of the Mediterranean, Greece. Without any proper plans, we booked our tickets to meet up in Athens the following week, booked a night’s stay at a hotel and off we went. No itinerary, no organised plans. Just a travel partner, a plane ticket and a hotel reservation. It was crazy, spontaneous and potentially hazardous. It made my anxiety level shoot up with it being my first time getting on a long-haul flight to (almost) the other side of the world but I did it anyway. This little young organised Malay girl was off to her first crazy spontaneous adventure.
