Change is gonna come…

Change is gonna come…

It’s been a while since we’ve spoken and I’m sorry for that. Truth is, I’ve missed you. I could tell you that I’ve been busy or that I’ve had a serious case of writers block but it would be a lie. I’ve been ill. Again. I know, I can hear you all rolling your eyes;...

It’s ok: To feel lost in life

It’s ok: To feel lost in life

‘It’s ok’  is a new series I’m starting where I discuss the more difficult aspects of life and travelling and hopefully help you work through the big, bad or scary things because we all need a little reassurance every now and then.

Well, as funny as his post was, it got me thinking.  Why...

It’s ok NOT to travel the world

It’s ok NOT to travel the world

If you ask people where they want to go on their adventures, their answer will be ‘travel the world’ but most people don’t really mean it, I know I don’t and you probably don’t either. In case you haven’t noticed, the world is pretty big. There’s a lot of ground (and sea) to cover and...

Why you should break social norms…

Why you should break social norms…

People think I’m weird. They have done for a long time.  But it’s not because I wear socks with my sandals or talk to myself in the street (I can reassure you that I do neither), it’s because I break social norms.  You know, societies rules such as saying ‘pardon’ when you burp (something women never...

Fake it till you make it!

No, I’m not talking about faking a you know what ladies in the you know where gentleman *ahem*. I’m talking about confidence Many people tell me that I’m far braver and more confident than they could ever be and that they could never cope with backpacking solo. Pffft.
