*Sponsored post in association with American Express®. I’ve always had a passion for travel; I love planning a trip and researching accommodation and things I’d like to see there. At 23 I travelled around the world for 5 months, fell in love with New York, Vietnam and New Zealand, and my love for seeing the world escalated.
