A 26-year-old currently based on Vancouver Island, Canada, I grew up in North Yorkshire, England, with a love of writing and a zest for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. I embarked on my first experience of solo travel aged 19 and went on to become an adventure enthusiast in the summer months between my university studies. A necessary form of education, my travel experiences so far have given me a valuable insight into global trends in human behaviour and interaction. They have allowed me to witness the natural beauty of mankind and our environment, as well as the challenges faced by both in an increasingly digital and materialistic world. I have a full-time job that is separate from blogging, but I look for opportunities to travel whenever I can!
I tend to blog about my travels retrospectively rather than at the time they happen, so that I can reflect thoroughly on all elements of the experience. I love adventure and photography, but in this blog I hope to offer more than tourist guides and pretty pictures. For me, travel writing is a chance to discuss sociological lessons learned on the road, in order to stimulate questions and help improve one’s understanding of humanity. Here I aim to share intimate observations and stories about my experiences that I hope illustrate how enlightening, inspiring and fulfilling travelling can be.
