We can all agree that seeing the world is a high priority on most of our bucket lists. We all want to explore other cultures and soak up new cuisines, landscapes and histories. But, sadly, in this day and age, travel can cost an arm and a leg just to get the flights we want. Then, frustratingly, little things like extra baggage, leg room and a window seat can often pile on the extra unnecessary fees we really could do without.
Tread lightly – she's watching. If I make one wrong move here I'll be sleeping on the sofa with a pillow for comfort for the next two weeks. But I'd like to think no negativity can come of this little write-up, to be fair. I just sort of want to use this space to express a few things – from a man's perspective. But, if it wasn't for this vocal challenge, I'd never dare to cross the threshold of the Viva community to begin with. But I'm here. So, you'll have to deal with me for a short while.
