Travel

Here is the hub of my thoughts; ideas, experiences, everything and anything. If you have something you’ve been thinking about or something you’d like me to write about, let me know.

Organised Chaos

Organised Chaos

Before I came I really thought I was fairly well travelled. I’ve gone travelling alone - backpacked round South America by myself with no Spanish in my vocabulary. Jumped headfirst into new cultures with their music and food and language (where I can) but...

We’ve only just begun

We’ve only just begun

Wow, I don’t even know where to start - so much has happened in just one day! I’m so happy I’m recording all my conversations because there’s no way I’d be able to remember everything I’ve learned. Right now I’m waking up after 4 hours of sleep after a full day...

Lagos – The Journey Begins

Lagos – The Journey Begins

I’ve actually been too nervous to shout about this because it feel apart last year and I didn’t want to jinx it...but seeing as I’m currently on my way to Heathrow Terminal 5 having ticked off a thousand to do lists and wracked my brain for anything I may have...

New Journey

New Journey

I've had a stress headache for about 2 weeks now. Plans have gone horribly awry due to bad organisation of others. The control is totally out of my hands and everything's gone tits up. I'm having to totally recalibrate the path I thought I was on and the 6 months...

Visa Saga

Visa Saga

It is with a sickening pit in my stomach that I have to say that my trip to Nigeria (for which this beautifully redesigned website was made) has been postponed. The Lagos Theatre Festival started yesterday and is running this week and I unfortunately am sat looking at...

Expectation

Wow, I can’t actually believe the amount of love that came back from that last post – you guys are so awesome. I definitely think my best when I’m away from home (super helpful) in terms of self reflection/growth.  I’ve been thinking a lot about Expectation. I hate this word. It is my nemesis. The […]

Colombia, I miss ya

It’s been quite hard for me to write about Colombia because I have so many different feelings about it. There are positives and negatives and in a lot of ways I feel like it was my phoenix moment. I sank my furthest and rose my highest. I think out of everywhere I travelled in South America, […]

Trials of a Traveler Pt. 2

I arrived at the Tulcan border harbouring a mix of feelings… Relief and stress. Fatigue and exhilaration, all at the same time. The only thing on my mind was crossing the border, and finding a nice hostel in Colombia where I could have a drink and a cigarette with some new found friends… Alas it was […]

Trials of a Traveler. Pt 1

I had planned to stay a night in Quito on the way to the border to check it out, but after talking to a few people it transpired that Quito was generally considered to be big and dangerous. After my laptop robbery, I decided best to skip it. However, for any travelling around Quito, be […]
