Well, a little bit about me and why I have a Travels of a 5ft Oner! I’m from the UK, and I consider the UK to be my base, but for me, the world is my home. I can make any country my home, with or without creature comforts. I began travelling when I was 22 years old; it started as a break after completing a set of gruelling exams, and now it has become a way of life.
Why do I have this blog? Well, I was discussing my travel plans for 2016 and 2017 with a friend. She suggested I start a blog, as people would undoubtedly find my experiences interesting to read. I must admit I was hesitant at first, as I didn’t feel that what I had to say was exciting, but after being nudged by a few other friends, I relented and gave it a go…now I’m hooked.
We should all remember that we live in a big world, and to restrict yourself to one country is pointless. There is so much out there, and every location has its own fascinating story to tell, a story that you can’t get from a book. A book won’t give you the smells, tastes and feels which you can only experience from being out there in the world.
My top five tips when searching for an adventure? Research. Be Brave. Enjoy Yourself. Embrace. Appreciate.
I hope my posts illustrates my passion for adventure, as well as my inquisitive and observant nature. I hope they give you the drive to start travelling, whether it be with a group or solo.
