Well, well, well!
So excuse the ridiculously long break! Okay okay…so it’s been a few years (ahem) but guess who’s back and readdy for another adventure! 😉
I won’t bore you with the details but let’s just say, life started to sink it’s long and very sharp claws into me (and it’s not been easy prising out 3/4 years worth of talon sinkage hah!) but here I am.
Going from one dull office job to another (which has been slowly killing my soul), I’ve managed to keep my focus and stick with it. After all, I knew the money I was tucking away would help catapult me off on my adventures once more.
It’s not been easy! With the years ticking by, the dream began drifting further and further away. Reality has been reminding me almost on a weekly basis that I still don’t have a property to my name so you can imagine the anxiety, the frustration – ‘Should I ditch and think of my future?’, ‘What will I do when I get back?’ ‘Will I still be employable?’.
To be honest, I still don’t know what I will end up doing in life but I know one things for certain..My life won’t have any regrets! This trip HAS to be done, so….fancy jumping in the back pack with me again? Same old humour, NEW story? 😀 Time for me to dust off my boots, clean up my ‘invisible man’ (aka, the back pack), top up my jabs and get going…
Get yourselves comfy as we get readdy for a South American adventure (more to be revealed soon) xx
Oh boy am I excited right now. It’s that time again…yup, writing competition time. Well, not just any competition actually, it’s for the chance to be considered for a SCHOLARSHIP! 😀
I didn’t have a clue where to start so actually wrote 2 stories which pulled from my travelling experiences. I spent hours tapping away but finally picked the stronger story of the 2 and submitted my final piece to the judging panel. Should hear which 3 lucky winners will be jetting off this year for training. Read full adventure here

Plonk plonk fizz. Hmm if only that was the cure for what one of my new friends has labelled a ‘travel hangover’! I seriously cannot shake it off and in actual fact, I’m not even sure I want to. My travel hangover is kinda like my lil reminder to keep going (not that I need a reminder of course haha!) Forget swallowing a few compressed sugar shelled paracetamols, give me a giant metal capsule that has wings and a super sized jet engine haha, I reckon that’s the only cure that can fix this ya know.
