About

A 22 year old based in London and having just completed a degree in History, I grew up in North Yorkshire with a zest for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. I embarked on my first experience of solo travel aged 19, and since then have become a passionate traveller in the summer months between my studies. My experiences so far have taught me so much about people and values that no education could buy. I believe that in order to record travel experiences most insightfully, it helps to write retrospectively. In this blog you won’t find flashy photographs and countless posts boasting about famous places I’ve visited and expensive things I’ve done. Even if I had the money to afford luxury travel, I would choose not to follow this lifestyle. For me, travelling isn’t about completing a check list from which to ‘show off'; it’s an opportunity to learn about socio-cultural issues in another country and compare them with the life I know, so that I can gain a better understanding of humanity. Here I aim to share intimate and thematic stories about my experiences that I hope illustrate how exciting and fulfilling travelling can be, alone or with a companion.

SoleSeeking encompasses both meanings  of the word ‘sole’. If you’re a keen runner, head to the category ‘Tales from my Trainers’ for running-related stories from home and away. Browse the ‘Destination’ pages and other categories for thoughtful commentary on travel experiences.

I hope reading inspires you to liberate the soles of your feet and seek your own special travel experiences!

  1. Hi Shannon!
    Es war ein harter Weg dich zu finden ;)
    Ich hoffe ihr hattet noch einen schönen Abend und Aufenthalt in Amsterdam. Der Silvesterabend war sehr lustig mit euch – wollte fragen, ob du uns ein paar Fotos davon zukommen lassen kannst?

    Liebe Grüße aus Graz, Sascha

    PS: cooler Reiseblog !

  2. Hey Sascha!
    Vielen Dank, das ist sehr nett von dir. Und danke für lesen! Ich denke, dass nächst ich über Amsterdam schreiben werde :)
    Ja sie war eine sehr lustige Nacht! Nach die Feuerwerk wollten wir in die Kneipe zurückkehren, aber wir nicht durften waren. Ich hatte ein paar Fotos von euch, aber sie nicht so gut waren, deshalb löschte ich sie! Aber ich werde dir ein paar von der Feuerwerk per Email senden. Hoffe, dass ihr eine tolle Reise auch hattet!
    Glückliches neues Jahr! Bis Österreich ;)

  3. Hey Kevin, your blog was recommended to me on this website. I’d love to go to South America one day so am looking forward to getting some inspiration from your posts:) But Iceland is also great if you fancy heading somewhere a little cooler!
