My Travel Story

by: Megan Horobin Start Date: Aug 31, 2016 - End Date: Mar 2, 2017
Hello , I'm Megan. I'm 18 years old and I'm about to start studying at University. I suffer with severe mental illness' and have from a young age. There are times when I feel that this life is not worth living anymore , and due to this feeling I have tried to take my own life on more than one occasion. As well as this , I have been sectioned many times , and although they're nothing like they used to be or like you see in movies , they're still not a good place for a developing teenager. I try every single day to better myself and to help myself get better , and hopefully one day I will. Luckily for me I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years. He has such a brilliant perspective on life and is the sunshine of all my days. He picks me up at my lowest and is always as understanding as he can be. He tries his best for me everyday , and I am so grateful for him. An aspiration that him and I have shared ,  is to travel. Not just to fulfill the wishes of family members , both living and dead , but to educate ourselves on the many cultures that grace our world , to wonder at the views and beautiful animals. We would like to travel the entire world and the destinations listed are the rough copies , however , we have a list of places we are going to visit (see photo). My illness caused me to lose the last job I had , therefore I cannot afford to travel where and whenever we'd like. That's why I am pleading for anyone to donate , to help me make his dreams come true as he has done with so many of mine. Travelling is a brilliant and amazing way to broaden horizons and change perspectives , even if for a short time , and this can lead to a slow but sure recovery. I want to be able to believe that the world is a beautiful place , even though it has been ugly to many. I hope you can empathise with my story , thank you for your time.
