Welcome to my little slice of the internet…
You’ll currently find me blogging from a little cafe somewhere in Asia with horrendous wifi. In December I left my home in London to travel the globe and well…whether I ever return is probably up for debate! So far our travels have spanned Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. From limelight stealing kangaroos to learning to scuba dive, to spending a month in a rickety old van cruising around the South Island where glacial lakes and icy rivers provided the extent of ‘hygiene’, it’s one hell of an adventure.
My aim is to share my travels in the least wanky way possible. Whilst I love creating beautiful, inspiring content I also want to ensure I’m showing the realities of travelling and backpacking too. My goodness, my day-to-day is often stunning but it’s also far from glamorous. We have a budget – I now pride myself on finding somewhere clean to sleep with aircon at the lowest rate possible (so far, £7.60 including breakfast *hula dances*) – and by this point in our travels, most of my clothes look and smell vaguely like a badger with a UTI pissed on them.
I want you to leave my blog and my Instagram feeling like you could do it too. I am not a millionaire, I do not come from family money, I did not live at home in order to afford this trip. I worked hard, I saved harder and I can guarantee that when I finally do return to London I’ll be paying back the emergency savings I’ve already dipped into for a long time.
This is by far the greatest adventure I have ever embarked on and wisest decision I’ve ever made too. With countless humid days ahead, hundreds of cities and towns to explore and many a beach to lounge on, I hope you’ll join me on this journey of a lifetime (I promise that’s the only time I’ll use the ‘j word’ non-ironically).
Whilst our travels are very much unplanned, I do have a hit list of countries that I absolutely cannot wait to experience. You’ll find the gist below (in no particular order)! If you’ve got any tips, tricks or work opportunities (blogging, photography or freelance writing related!) then hit me up and I’ll buy you a virtual piña colada.
Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Komodo, Borneo
More on me…
I moved to London when I was 18 and spent a year folding jeans in John Lewis, frying my brain cells in the World’s Most Boring Office Job (dressed like ‘a cheap air hostess’ no less, according to the charming clientele) and finally au pairing for a summer in Barcelona. Fast forward 5 years and I have a degree in Law & Anthropology from the LSE, run my own successful business in blogging and social media and basically make it my aim to spend as little time actually in the UK as possible.
I’m fiercely loyal, the one you come to for tough love, about 10 minutes late everywhere I go no matter how hard I try not to be and really good at finding situation-appropriate gifs. I’ve been known to cry in public when I see a cute French Bulldog, I love getting stuck into a really good series with an insane amount of seasons (Gilmore Girls, Friends, Grey’s Anatomy, Suits…) and I am the self-proclaimed Queen of Baths.
