Right. I think it’s about DAMN time I started writing some stuff. We’ve been overseas for 18 days, have visited 6 different cities (7 if you include Lagos – but we won’t talk about Lagos right now); and I have about 800 photos to go through and decide which ones are best left for my private stash, and those of which I’d like to share with the world… Continue reading
Well – I am officially unemployed. My last day of work was yesterday and I can’t help but feel anxious and worried about what’s to come. Continue reading
People always put off travelling for many reasons – whether it be a weekend away, or a gap year across the other side of the world. I think a lot of people thought we were crazy when we told them what we planned on doing. The amount of times people told me I was brave, or that they wished they could do the same, was surprising. I know its a scary thing to think about doing; but when you really break down all the things going on in everyday life, there isn’t really much holding you back from pursuing a life of travel.

So here we are – exactly one month before we fly away to Europe. It’s a Friday and I’m sitting at my desk at work. There’s only 15 and a half business days left. Jesus.
Picture this – you’re a scared nervous wreck and can’t remember the last few minutes, or exactly how you got yourself into this mess. Looking around you see colours; you know it’s beautiful but you just can’t bring yourself to appreciate it. There’s a sharp stabbing pain in your ear and no matter how hard you try, you can’t make the agony go away. Nup. That’s it you think. I can’t be here. I can’t breathe. You look up thinking the surface isn’t too far away so kick your legs trying to break through to fresh air but it doesn’t seem to get any closer. That’s when the sickening feeling starts to grow – you’re trapped. You just want to yell and scream but you can’t, because you’re trapped…. Continue reading
I’ve talked myself in and out of starting a travel blog so many times it’s not even funny. I guess it’s because I have a lot of fears and doubts with this. I think my biggest fear is thinking; who will actually waste their time to read this?! Who even cares what I’m writing about, and will they like it?
Another thing that constantly pops into my head is if I will actually have time to write, let alone take care of a blog. What am I getting myself into?
At the end of the day though – I need to remind myself why I decided to start doing this.
It’s for me. I’m starting a blog for myself as a way to record this experience and look back on it in years to come.
And it’s all just a little bit of fun really.
So around the middle of last year, a bunch of us were talking about how awesome it would be to quit our jobs and backpack around the world Continue reading
So, turns out when you try to spontaneously quit your job and buy a one way ticket overseas, there’s actually lots you need to think about and take into account and plan for. Continue reading
Well, first things first. I think as the first post on this blog I should establish what this is all about… Continue reading
