In recent months I have kind of neglected my ‘what I would buy/spend my time if I won the lottery’ but no more, my series is back and is back with a bang. I am here to inspire all you dreamers and optimist out there. The good thing about dreamers is that we’re always positive and optimistic about the future, we only hope for the best and see the best in everything and everyone. Sometimes it can be a good and bad thing. But sometimes there is no point in dreaming if all it’s ever going to be is a dream. We should all try and pursue our dreams no matter how big or small they are because anyone can achieve anything in life if they try hard enough, right now I’m working my hardest to try and pursue mine – I’m writing to you guys. It’s better to know that you tried rather than to give up and not try at all because in the end you could be living the life that you have always dreamed of. You could be living your dream. However if you never try you will always be wondering what if and you’ll never be truly happy. Do you want to be living someone else’s dream or yours? Although, life does not always go the way that we intend we have two choices; we can either take control and start living our lives or we can just let thing pass and exist. What are you going to do?

Last year I did one of these and it was very popular so I decided to do another one and make this an annual thing. With 10 weeks to spare I have decided to dedicate this post to Europe, we are going to go to as many places as possible. Last years post included a range of different places but this year I discovered just how beautiful the continent of Europe is and I thought that I might give you a few places to add to your travel bucket list and hopefully inspire you! I love discovering new places, learning new languages and experiences other cultures, it would be a dream for me to travel  the world.

If we are going to spend an entire summer travelling around Europe we need to travel in style and what better way to travel than by private jet! A whole plane to yourself and your loved ones that fits your schedule, it doesn’t get any better than that. My number one choice of private jet charter would definitely have to be Private Fly. Although I haven’t tested them out myself I have done my research and they have some of the best reviews, I can trust that if you ever book with them you would be in great hands. And you get to choose your aircraft too! The high life is truly amazing.
