Most Memorable Travel Experience
“My two favourite places to have travelled to more recently with friends have been Switzerland and Amsterdam. Switzerland was a completely different to any other location I had been to as we went in January when it was covered in Snow and were able to go up into all the mountains which had amazing views. Amsterdam is my favourite city I have visited so far, featuring all its canal systems and lively squares and I was able to go on the highest swing in Europe!”
