My World Cruise Wishlist

I walked up to the counter after arriving in Krabi airport, booked a bus ticket to the pier and squeezed myself on the bus between humongous backpacks and Scandinavian guys. We arrived at a random restaurant with extortionate prices and were told to buy our boat tickets here. I had researched that the next boat…

2015, the year I became an Expat

My hands shook as my fingers tapped on the keyboard, my knees crashed together nervously. Usually I`m never lost for words, however I now couldn`t remember what I was supposed to write. How does one hand in their notice on a job that you`ve done for over 5 years, a career no less? One that…

All inclusive in Egypt- My experience

I sat on my bunk bed in the small, cramped and fairly dirty dorm room. I entered the WiFi code and checked my Facebook messages. One was from my Mum, ‘Having a great time in Egypt, you’ll have to come with us next year when you’re back, our treat!’. At the time that sounded absolutely…

Having second thoughts about my Travelling lifestyle

My jet lagged eyes struggled to open, it was as if they were stuck together with a viscous glue. I sleepily turned and looked out of the oval shaped window and saw a tall, triangular snow-capped mountain. ‘Mount Fuji’, I thought. This meant that I was finally in Japan. My heart started to beat fast….

Baadunk, baadunk, baadunk…’. Monday morning; prep day. I was idly watching copies of my worksheet fly out of the photocopier when I looked up. On the wall of the photocopying room is the most beautiful image. An image of a map. I quickly surveyed the countries I’ve travelled to, the countries I know and love….

I’m flying home for Christmas

My suitcase lies in the corner of my room. It looks so small and insignificant. Just a suitcase packed with a few summer clothes and Christmas presents. Eight months ago the same suitcase looked very different. The first time I saw the suitcase in my room I thought it was humongous and imposing. My whole…

How I discovered my Passion, My 100th Blog post

I was sat on my comfortable corner couch in Liverpool city centre; the 42 inch plasma TV screen that was usually blasting out noise was turned off. Outside I could hear children playing, but I wasn’t paying attention to them. It was my first attempt at meditating. Anything to rid myself of that horrible feeling…

Lasting impressions of Dubai

Dubai was the first country that I visited on my big RTW trip so understandably it has a special place in my heart. Dubai is a city of contrasts. Expats drink pints of beer beneath the impressive architecture, women in burkhas obediently follow men wearing the traditional Arabic clothes and head-dress, Westerners prowl the metro…
