A decade of Birthday Celebrations around the world

Turning 22 in London, the city where the tradition was born

Looking through some old photos, as I have entered my birthday month which is October, I realised that this year will mark a decade of my tradition to celebrate my birthday around the world. It all started back in 2005 when I took my trip to London, to visit my best friend Agra who was studying there at the moment. She had organised my Birthday party at her house and we had a few of our high school friends attend as most were still in College those days, studying in London. This is when I got the birthday travel bug, a tradition that for personal reasons, I keep very close to my heart.

Memories are precious and the people who have shared these memories with me during all these years are even more special. Thank you for being in my life, you know who you are!
