Seven side-hustles I fund my travels with that I can do from anywhere in the world

I’ve lost count of the amount of blog posts I’ve read telling me to stop buying coffee when I’m out in order to afford to travel. To be completely honest, I don’t even buy coffee when I’m out. I have my one cup in the morning and that does me for the day. Similarly with … Continue reading Seven side-hustles I fund my travels with that I can do from anywhere in the world

The nine free travel apps I couldn’t live without

It's fair to say technology has definitely shaped up the way we travel. Being only 22, I haven't experienced the type of traveling my Nan used to tell me about - cycling from country to country using only a map and calling home occasionally to check in. Nope. My first solo travel adventure included an … Continue reading The nine free travel apps I couldn’t live without

10 things I can’t travel without

Over the last year of travelling I’ve found myself loosening up a bit when it comes to packing. I used to be someone who’d pack way in advance of taking an actual trip, which was great, until I realised I couldn’t wear half of my wardrobe without unpacking again first. Nowadays, I have a list … Continue reading 10 things I can’t travel without

My first experience of Contiki and why it’s the perfect jump into solo travelling

I’ve written about my solo travel adventures before (and almost definitely will do again) but I thought today I’d focus on my first ever solo-ish trip. Because if I hadn’t taken the jump into taking it, there’s a chance I never would have started exploring properly on my own. Which also means this blog might … Continue reading My first experience of Contiki and why it’s the perfect jump into solo travelling

Why everyone should consider solo travel

Rather than a great urge to travel the world or a sudden influx of money into my bank account, my journey into traveling solo was sparked by little more than impatience and irritation. First – New Years eve circa 2016, when I realised I had no plans. After some social media stalking I found a … Continue reading Why everyone should consider solo travel

INTERVIEW: Meet Henrik Jeppesen, the man who’s been to all 193 countries

How many countries have you been to in your lifetime? 20? 30? Even more? Meet Henrik Jeppesen - the Danish 29-year-old who's visited every country in the world. "I don't collect objects," he shrugged, "I collect experiences." Starting his travels just 10 years earlier at the age of 18, Jeppeson decided to put travel first in … Continue reading INTERVIEW: Meet Henrik Jeppesen, the man who’s been to all 193 countries

How my failed attempt at studying abroad made me want to go even more

If you've ever met me in person (or even just follow me on any form of social media) you'll probably know I tried to study abroad. It was a common topic of conversation both before I went and came back (which, only admittedly had 13 days between the two events) and it's become some kind of a long standing joke with pretty much everyone I know that I won't shut up about it...

Why I love spontaneous travel plans

I'm awful at prepping things far in advance. I just can't do it. It's a combination of getting far too excited far too quickly, and not having the patience to spend weeks, or even months thinking about holidays and everything I want to do there. Not to say planning in advance is a bad thing … Continue reading Why I love spontaneous travel plans
