The Style Traveller Best of 2018 Round Up!

Here at Style traveller HQ 2018 has been yet another seriously busy year of travel. The start of a new year is perfect time to reminisce and appreciate all of the incredible experiences that the past year has brought.

Flaubert wrote ‘Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world’. It certainly does, there is rarely a day when I don’t think about how lucky I am and by no means do I take my life and job for granted. I see each trip as an opportunity to see the world in a new light, learn from it.

Bonnie Rakhit This Morning Show ITV aug 18

Over the past 12 months I’ve managed to clock up over 30 destinations, taken 25 flights, been featured in 14 magazine and newspaper articles, nominated for 2 blog awards and got invited onto the This Morning show on ITV to be a presenter of the Holidays of the Rich and Famous segment. (pictured above)

I managed to tick off a couple of bucket list destinations off in there too, with visits Cambodia, Vietnam and Peru. I also revisited Rio de Janeiro which is one of my all time favourite cities.

Wow what a whirlwind. Thank you so much for joining me on this incredible journey. Here’s my photo diary of The Style Traveller Best travel moments of 2018…

I managed to sneak in my first of two trips to Ibiza in May, for opening weekend. Ibiza is one of my favourite destinations in the world, not just for the partying but more for the spa and holistic side these days. As well as a trip to Mykonos and Monaco.
