My greatest travel experience was on safari in Botswana. We would do dawn and dusk drives. We saw heaps of giraffes, elephants and hippos. We stayed in these flash tents and I drank rooibos tea for the first time. I also ate a termite for fun. Another travel highlight was the first time I went to Rome. St Peter's Basilica blew my tiny mind. Usually I really hate anything touristy, because I'm claustrophobic and queue averse, but the Sistine Chapel was worth the crush.
Worst / best trip was India with my mate Renee. She took the picture of me and my new friend Mr Cow. We got scammed and had the worst case of diarrhoea I have ever experienced. We were on a budget, so we shared a room. Let's just say it was a real bonding experience. It was pretty tough but we also saw some amazing things and had a life-changing experience. Primarily it made me really grateful for my birthright and to be living in New Zealand. I also smelt like curry.
