Thanks so much for visiting my page 🙂
To those of you who don’t know me, and the ones that need reminding – I’m 25 and I’ve started a BRAND NEW SUPER EXCITING BLOG – call it a personal, but slightly publicised journal – to keep track of the sights, thoughts and feelings I’ll be experiencing on my crazy travel journey around the world.
I’ve been travelling the world since September 2018, after being finally diagnosed with Depression and Anxiety. Determined to change my life and mentality around, and against the advice of both a doctor and therapist, I moved to Spain for two months to learn Spanish, flew to South America, travelled around India, explored Malaysia and parts of Thailand. I’m soon to fly and explore SE Asia as part of my ongoing trip and I blog to raise awareness of travelling solo as a female who suffers from mental health issues, so in years to come I’ve got something fun and truthful to look back on – show the grandkids and all that jazz.
I’m not the savviest traveller – I trust people I shouldn’t way too easily, I book 3 stop flights to save money and I’m expecting to get the runs at least 10 times in my soon to be epic trip, due to my should be gluten and dairy free allergy that I regularly ignore if I really want a pack of chocolate digestives – not that I’m planning to find many of these in some of the places I’ll be going to – but still. I’ve always loved meeting people, travelling, seeing new sites and hiking up mountains but have always struggled with doing this by myself – 2017 was a year that changed all that.
I’m excited for this adventure to continue and share the highs and lows with you along the way as I continue travelling the world. It is my hope that people in the same position will be able to relate to the stories I open up about and in turn feel less lonely and isolated as I share thoughts, feelings and emotions along this journey, as well as providing tips to fellow travellers, with or without mental health problems, to make your adventures easier to organise – tips from someone with Anxiety can’t be the worst right? I’ve done all the panicking for you!
I hope you have as much fun catching up with me on my journey as I have had writing about it.
