I’m fairly well travelled and only speak fluent English. Luckily, this has never been a problem as English is a universal language that most countries close to us speak well. I’m not overly pleased I just speak one language; it was the only subject I struggled with at school as I just couldn’t remember/take in the new words very easily. As an adult, I haven’t tried to learn another language properly, assuming it’s too late and not naturally in my skill set anyway.View Post

Mainland Europe might be right next door but I feel there’s always somewhere new to explore, especially as I’m trying to squeeze in as much as I can. As I said, I’ve cut Finland from my route for being too far out, and I put Spain and Portugal in the cold as I’ve done them a lot before and don’t feel the need to go back just yet.

*Updated 2018. When I left University my plan was to go interrailing with a couple of friends but the trip didn’t materialise, which was definitely a good thing for my wallet. It also allowed me to get into a pretty good career path where three years on I’m confident enough to take a summer off exploring.View Post
In the last couple of weeks as more and more people have found out about my getaway, the topic of cost as been raised quite a few times. People have asked how can I do this without overspending, so I’ve done a quick breakdown of costs which I’m estimating will come to £3,000 total over the two months.View Post
With the sun shining as a reminder of the heat I’d face in Italy mid-august, I decided to make a day out of buying my first backpack for travel and headed south to Brighton. I didn’t really know what I was looking for, I had an idea of general size but no preference for design or brand.View Post
