My Travel Story

by: Ingrid Manta Start Date: Nov 14, 2017 - End Date: Mar 13, 2018
Exactly one month ago, I celebrated my 39th birthday and while I was blowing the candles I wished I could achieve all my dreams (event the craziest) by the time I hit 40. 
This trip was one of my wishes. 

I have always dreamt of travelling and seeing the world, and 6 months ago one of my friend and I started planning this amazing round trip of 17 days to Dubai, Sri Lanka and Maldives.
It is a one in a lifetime trip!! Something to absolutely live for!
Our plane tickets have now been booked and we are supposed to take off on the 1st January 2018. 
But unfortunately something very unfortunate happened in my friend's life and she might not be able to join me on that trip anymore.
The idea of cancelling is ABSOLUTELY NOT an option. It would be totally devastating.

 I am very much decided to not give up on my dream, carrying on with the trip and possibly travel SOLO! Which is a little crazy, I admit it.

To make things even worst, 'my friend' might not be able to refund me her part of the cost.
The cost of all accommodation will now be fully on me.
This is going to be financially challenging (in other words: outrageoulsy expensive!!!) to come to terms with 
I  have already maxed out a couple of credit cards.
But the funny thing with credit cards is that one day you need to repay it!! :-) 
I might just be broke for the next 10 years!  lol 

Until now, I have been too proud to ask for some help but LIFE has thaught me one thing lately: 
Ask for what you need and you might receive.
So here I am asking you.

If you are willing to help me achieving my dream and contribute to my beautiful trip, every single penny would be welcomed. 
I do not wish any Christmas or birthday gift this year...
All I want for Christmas is to find 400 of you willing to contribute only £5 (the equivalent of a glass of wine) to my travel.
That would be absolutely fantastic! A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.
I realise that most of you will just read this and not feel concerned at all, and really I am not blaming you.
However, to all those who do care about me and feel like being generous and helping me funding my dream, a BIG THANK YOU!!! 
You absolutely rock!!

Forever grateful,
