So to help feed our NEED to travel, this weekend we visited the Destinations Holiday & Travel Show in London. Having prepared ourselves to come back with pockets stuffed with rolled up brochures from the show we set off on our way Saturday morning! This is our first travel show we have been to and had been given complimentary tickets from Titan Travel (cheers guys!) – we wasn’t 100% sure what we would gain if anything, but we were in for a treat…

If any of you haven’t yet visited a travel show before then from our experiences it’s definitely worth your time. Not only will you be tempted to just book any flight and see where you would end up, but you’ll have gained inspiration from hundreds of travel agents and tour guides. We have learnt a lot about where we want to go and how we go about making that become reality. After filling out dozens upon dozens of competition forms, even we are starting to feel lucky we’ll hopefully win one of them right? πŸ˜‰

We found there was so much to see and do along with a great amount of variety. We even managed to find ourselves sponsoring a tree that’ll be planted in our honour, thanks to the Woodland Trust – How awesome is that?!

A visit to the travel show wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the β€˜Taste the World’ stands where we were able to try out some of the World’s incredible flavours and sensations. This included us trying for the first time: Reindeer Sausages, Thai Curry Crickets, Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants and more! There were a few moments were we looked down to see what we would be eating and hesitated, but mind over matter and we did it! πŸ˜€ – can I just say, the reindeer sausages were just incredible!

One important thing we have learnt from the travel show is that the majority of stands have reduced prices. Now whether you are looking for a simple holiday or a once in a life time experience, this is definitely a major plus in anyones book. We will be going back to this show next year as it was so good to us, and hopefully it’ll be just as good to you!
