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
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

Nowadays, I have a list … Continue reading 10 things I can’t travel without
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

The first thing I notice about my new friend Marco is that he has very hairy legs.
