who am i- (1)

Who am I?

I’m just a girl.  A girl that likes to travel.  IMG_2333

At least that’s what I would have said when I first wrote this page a few years back when I began to discover the world.

Now I’m a girl who realises that I like to travel in a certain way.  Organised. Planned.  Little stress.  I wear a backpack but I am not a backpacker.  I like luxuries when I can afford them and I like to buy things as well as moments.

I don’t travel with an agenda to go off the beaten track or avoid tourist destinations.  I travel wherever I want to and am able to and in whatever style I like.  That is the very beauty of travel.  To do it your way.

Originally from the sunny South Coast of the UK, I now call (for however long the dream lasts), Bondi Beach home and it’s medicine for my soul.

I’ve had the good fortune to travel around South East Asia for a few months (didn’t really like it) and Africa for a few weeks (a life-changer) and I now currently find myself in the most amazing little suburb in Australia.

I am not special.  I’m simply a woman attempting to travel the world whilst suffering with depression and an autoimmune illness.

I write about whatever I want to and tell you how travel and the experiences I have make me feel.  I also love to help people so for advice, personal stories and thoughts on life, head over to my sister website Reclaimingyourfuture.

Speaking of website names, you might wonder where mine got its from…

Quite simply, I lost a lot of my teenage years and early twenties to depression so I wanted to start reclaiming my future and take back some control of the years ahead.

This is just me, my travels and my words about them.  I hope you’ll join me.

Much love
