It’s so important for us to realise that the only place we will find long lasting, true happiness and acceptance is from within

Lizzie: We are planning to go to Paris. The plan is to do all the art galleries there. We want to just explore, as much as we can. There’s too many people who miss out, they have their bubble and can’t escape it. And any creativity they have is completely buried.
Laurel: It’s nice to be able to think like this, but it kind of causes problem too. A lot of the time we feel we can’t relate to people our age anymore – you know like all they care about is TV shows, and Snapchat.. or what are you wearing today. 
Lizzie: I don’t know what we would do if we didn’t have each other.

Laurel: A lot of people look for happiness outside of themselves- in a job, in a relationship, in material possessions. Everyone is looking for the next thing that will ‘make them happy’, however what we must realise is that these things are all temporary. Once you have that ‘thing’ you desire, it’s usually not as fulfilling as you anticipated, and then it’s on to the next thing. These sources of happiness are external, and I feel it’s so important for us to realise that the only place we will find long lasting, true happiness and acceptance is from within.”

About Laurel
I went travelling by myself when I was 15. I quit college for a bit and went round France – Paris, Lyon, the Alps, then ended up in Amsterdam. And I’m back now to finish my course.

I was just fed up of being in college – and following the day to day routine. So I felt I had to change things up. It was crazy, really amazing, I know I’m still young, but I feel I can say it is one of the best experiences I will ever have.

I feel that, I wouldn’t say ‘rescued me’ as a person, but definitely changed and improved me. I feel I appreciate everything a bit more – and I feel like you realise there’s so much more out there than just your immediate surroundings.
