A 22 year old based in London and having just completed my degree, I grew up in North Yorkshire with a zest for the outdoors. 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 values and people 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 places I’ve visited and things I’ve done. For me, travelling isn’t just about completing a check list from which to ‘show off’. Here I aim to share intimate and thematic stories about my experiences that I hope illustrate how exciting and fulfilling travelling alone can be.
