Adventuring in Peru with my pal Freya has reignited my love of travel…not that it was ever particularly buried. Being away from reality is perfect for putting things in perspective: countless bus journeys through the Andean highlands have given rise to moments of clarity about the future, past and present I never thought I would stumble upon. The poignancy of taking a trip that my family would so love to be taking together has surprised me. A strange ambivalence of revelling in independence whilst yearning for a period of past.
