Hi gapyear. Do you want to know what my secret is? I'm a mermaid, and if you sent me to the Cook Islands I'll be able to bring back for you some black pearls. All you need to do is get me there!
I haven't got any amazing travelling secrets or discoveries to share with you as i'm still saving my money to start that chapter in my life properly, so i'm going to tell you about my genuine biggest, current secret.
My best kept secret is the ability to capture the place I am in through photography and writing. I have been a member of the site since the year 2000 when I was in school dreaming of taking a gapyear before university.
I have been traveling since I was born. My travels really started taking off when I turned 19 and for the next 6 years I have traveled all over the world. My best kept secret is my fearlessness. I turn into a different person when I travel.
I thought it would be fitting to share some things I've learnt from travels, some the hard way. Instead of giving you just one best kept secret, I thought I'd give you 20. Who knows, maybe you'll use one or two of these!
Ok, so it's probably about time I come clean about this anyway. I love writing, I love writing about travel, but, and this is a big BUT, I have never actually been 'travelling'. I'm just another one of those armchair travellers.
Fickle, jaded, wasting precious time, One, last, spin - left a mountain yet to climb. Of course, money isn't everything - but to leave it's what I needed; A penny left, a bottom reached and a person left conceded.
I have a secret to share. A secret that could possibly change your outlook on life and the way and the way in which you live it. For centuries people believed that man's biggest fear is to die - it's not.
Let me make you my best kept secret - it's called a Captain Cook Cocktail. All you need is a little gin, some cherry liqueur and some orange juice. Shake it all up and you've got yourself a best kept secret.
My best kept secret is (at somewhat of a discovery to me!) completely aligned to the Pacific's best kept secret, the beautiful Cook Islands. Apparently I'm a bit of a dancer and we all know those Pacific Islanders love to dance.
Only three people in the whole world know my best kept secret - and to everyone else, my predilection for curling up on sofas, obliging walls and cross-country trains with a dog-eared notebook and biro is a total mystery.
I'll tell you something. My mum and dad, both in their 60's have never been abroad, ever! Not that they didn't want to. They didn't have passports and couldn't leave the country without explaining why, where and how long for.
To win Gapyear.com's adventure of a lifetime to the Cook Islands, I'm going to reveal my best kept secret. I am currently studying in Oslo which means two things: 1) great clothes 2) not so great prices.
I can't start a fire with two sticks. I can't play any musical instruments. I can't catch a fish with my bare hands (although I'm not half bad with a fishing rod). But I can take a damn good photo of a cat, if I do say so myself.
Having just returned from an epic trip I've been having a serious case of the post-travel blues. When I found out about this competition I was possibly more excited than when I booked my round the world flights back in 2011.
My favourite part of travelling is coming home. That's not to say that I don't passionately love venturing out into the world; I love that more than I could ever put into words. I love it all; new people, new food, new sights, everything.
So, I'll let you all in on a little secret... Everyone is good at making friends, you do it every day, sometimes intentionally, sometimes unintentionally. But who can say that they can 'make' their friends, quite literally.
As a newbie to London Monica is constantly coming across new sights, new sounds and new things to see and do, but, more importantly, always finding new places to eat and drink. She shares her experiences here.
This is an example of Macca's best kept secret. He reckons it will get him to the Cook Islands. Except he's not allowed to enter. And this is an example. And he kind of comes across as a bit lazy!
