A little about Marvel in Travel
About 7 months ago, I decided to create a space where I could write about places from around the world. Not because there was anyone to read about them in particular, but because I had so many things I wanted to write about, and wanted to do so and be able to reach others who shared this unstoppable wanderlust with me. And so Marvel in Travel was born.
It started as a WordPress Blog under the name www.marvelintravel.com, I then decided to create an Instagram Page (@marvelintravel) so I could have another space for photographs, and to give the blog a chance to reach even more people, and so it did.
After months of work and dedication, I started to receive positive feedback from people from all over the world, including a writing job offer for a travel platform in India (how awesome is that?) To be honest I had no idea this could escalate so quickly–given that I’m still studying and have tight schedules. Today I’m so happy to have started because that means I get to do the very things I love, and share them with those from around the globe, who find traveling the world as fascinating as I do.
This summer was interesting, exciting, different, cultural, exhausting, beautiful, intense, eye-opening, and every other adjective that can fit into experiencing 12 different countries in 30 days time.
From wandering around the halls of Musée du Louvre, and marvelling at it’s paintings and sculptures, to been 1,600 feet high in the Swiss Alps. From road-tripping all over central Europe, flying over its mountains and cities, and sailing through its rivers, to sitting in silence and staring at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, and praying in front of Pope John Paul II’s tomb.
From visiting the white cliffs of Dover, mysterious Stonehenge and miraculous Bath, to exploring Canterbury, London, Bampton, and Shakespeare’s house in Stratford, to wandering around Rome and Florence and sailing in a yacht in Capri. From assisting to a gypsy party in Budapest, and sipping wine in Bordeaux, to eating tapas and paella in Madrid.
This summer gave me experiences, and lots of stories to tell now that I’m back home for college. To start, I made this short video with footage from places around Europe, and it serves as an introduction to Marvel in Travel as well, given that not many people I know, know that I’ve been working on this, and plan to share it on my personal social media platforms.
Here I leave you to the video and hope you like it!
This is a bit of what happened this summer…
We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything. -The Observer
