    How to Be a Tourist in Your City

    As much as I love travelling there are moments where I have to remember to be realistic. I would love to just pack up my job and go travelling around the world (as I’ve mentioned numerous times), but financially that isn’t possible for me, just yet. Yes, there are many many articles on the Internet about how you can quit your job and go travelling and earn along the way, but I don’t think I could do it just like that. Maybe that’s just me being a chicken, who knows? I have a whole future ahead of me, so I’d rather take it day by day. Despite all of this,…

    For the Love of Travel!

    In an attempt to keep things fresh on the blog, I’ve opted to write about a variety of topics but in a more uniformed way. I’m trying to get back into the blogosphere slowly, so I thought if I had some sort of plan in place this would help. Every month, I’m going to try and post at least 4 times within these categories: Lifestyle, Travel, Food & Books. These are things I’ve written about a lot over the years anyway, but now I’m going to try and tame the chaos that is my blog. Last week’s post was about self-care and this week I’ll be discussing my love of…

    Travel Bucket List 2018

    If I could I would quit my job and go travelling. And whilst I know that there are jobs out there that will allow me to travel and work at the same time, I don’t know if that is something I could do. Perhaps with time and research, it could become a possibility but for now, I like the fact that I have a stable paycheck which allows me to save and then go to the places that I really want to go. So, in saying that I, of course, have a travel bucket list. Mutay and I sat down when we went to Edinburgh last February and came up…

    Wondering

    I sometimes wonder what life would be like if young people weren’t pressured into choosing what they want to do with their life, so early on. From the time they do their GCSEs, it’s kind of expected that they’re choosing subjects that will set them up at a good university and onto a good career path. Question in point: Why do people need to desperately know what you want to do in life? I wonder what would have happened had I not gone to university and instead just got a part time job and travelled the world. Would I be worldlier? Or would I just be stuck up and constantly…

    Dear 2014

    Dear 2014, I’m probably a bit late with this letter, as we are now obviously in 2015, but I thought I’d just write you one anyway. We started off the year on a high and successfully completed Blog Everyday In February. All was going great – fecking peachy, in fact. We finally wrote that post we wanted to for AGES about religion and felt a big weight come off our chest. The importance of not giving a fuck was rife in 2014, and it served us well. Of course, you and I sometimes didn’t see eye to eye. It was to be expected. Despite a few hiccups toward the end of…
