A 24 year old currently based in London, I grew up in North Yorkshire 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 studies. Studying History at university increased my curiosity about world cultures, global trends in human interaction, and the impact of socio-political events on society. A necessary form of education, my travel experiences so far have given me a valuable insight into and understanding of human behaviour and the various issues that arise throughout life across humanity. Now in full-time work, I look for opportunities to travel whenever I can!
I believe that in order to record travel experiences most perceptively, it helps to write retrospectively. The purpose of this blog is not to boast about famous or expensive experiences completed from a check-list, but to discuss political and sociological lessons learned from travels in another country, in order to benefit the reader’s personal development and understanding of mankind. Here I aim to share intimate observations and stories about my experiences that I hope illustrate how enlightening, exciting and fulfilling travelling can be, whether alone or with a companion.
I hope reading inspires you to free the soles of your feet and seek your own special travel experiences!
