So, this is my first post – hopefully it is the start of something exciting. I have always been a lover of travel blogs and been inspired by the diverse range of information you can get first hand from people that have experienced the things you yearn for.
I am a traveller at heart, before any of my career ambitions, astronaut phase and distractions I wanted to travel the world and see everything for what it is. How can we possibly live in a world this diverse and vast and not experience it? I am an avid creative and business centric, or so i thought. Once the passion of travel was pushed to the back of my head I focused all my efforts into becoming an ‘entrepreneur’ which is thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding, however as many of my friends can vouch for, I never really had any direction and never knew where to focus my energy (this is apparently a curse of being a creative).
My work was amazing I enjoyed every day of it, but something was missing, and I didn’t know what – It was only when I was visiting my home town Nottingham one my way home in the pouring rain from a night out, that everything hit me as once. It may have been that I was still drunk, but it all came flooding back to… There is something else I should be doing… Seeing the world (many of you probably have had this same experience and some have always focused their energy on travel).
So I made the decision there and then, broke the news to my parents that I was putting everything that I worked for on hold (I was worried they would doubt it, even though I would have done it anyway) they were overly supportive. I spent the next 4 months saving my income, leaving my apartment and living on friends coaches (who I will never be grateful enough for) and gathering as much money as I could.
Then I took off on an adventure around Europe, little did I know this trip would make me see much more than I thought, opened my eyes and gave me an insight into my life and what it is I NEED to focus my energy on. I wont ever say “I found myself”, I do not believe in that, I see it as a never ending journey of knowledge.
With this blog I am hoping to not only share my adventures and photos (as I take a lot) but also give insights into the world out there to hopefully inspire other people to see it.
As pretentious as my posts will sound I’m anything but and I hope you come to like me as time goes on.
P.S. I will try to keep the cliches to a minimum.
