Travel & Tourism Student


Hi, my name is Sam; I am 17-years-old now and am studying for a Level 3 diploma in Travel and Tourism.

I first travelled abroad at the age of 9 on my first foreign holiday with my family to Murcia in Spain. A few years went by having ‘stay-cations’ in the UK and I caught the travel bug in 2017 with two amazing trips during that year – the first to Sicily in Italy and the second to Madrid in Spain.

I follow several travel blogging agencies and websites like Lonely Planet and Beautiful Destinations which gave me some inspiration to visit places around the world. I know I am a ‘foodie’ and will sample new foods that interest me!

This year I visited Prague with my Grandma in May and am planning on visiting Murcia in Spain again in the summer, Berlin in Germany possibly in November and Amsterdam in The Netherlands next February – so a busy few months for me!

Anyway as a new writer for Jackie, I hope you find my first blog interesting and it entices you to visit Madrid.
