Another long overdue update!

Kia Ora all, So it’s been a seriously long time since I last posted which I can only apologise for. I have realised it is a combination of my inability to not talk to people in the hostels, travel sickness on the bus and my (now apparent) dislike of writing that have been the culprits in my slow blog posts.  That…

Liebster award nomination

Liebster Award I would like to thank my friend Laura from LifeBeautyLens for nominating me for The Liebster Award.

First time Scuba Diving: Koh Haa, Thailand

Before I set off on my travels, one thing I definitely wanted to try was Scuba Diving.

I aimed to do a list before I left the UK…

Well overdue update

As the title says, I am well overdue an update on this blog so here it finally is. I have been travelling for just over 1 month now and its not been as hard or as scary as i thought it would be (touch wood, its only been 1 month!). Currently in Surfers Paradise on the east coast of Australia…

The journey begins…..

So I have finally started my travels but to say I’ve had a bumpy start is an understatement. A day or so before I was due to fly I was struck down with a sudden stomach bug with lots of intense vomiting (channeling my inner cilla I’d say suprise suprise). There was no way I’d be allowed on a flight…
