Bonjour! Here I am, writing my first blog, catching the writing bug, loosing my bloginity!!!
Whats this blog about? TRAVELLING (duh)!
I’ve always been a keen traveller but I’ve never had the opportunity to go backpacking; my excuse has always been “I’ve not got the money right now, maybe next year” (and then I’ll end up spending money on clothes and nights out and then wonder why I can’t afford a holiday….) or “now’s not a good time, I’m too busy at uni/freelancing/starting a new job”. But now I have finally come to the conclusion that if I always have this attitude it will never happen, another year will pass by and I’ll be wishing and wondering why I never went traveling. My circumstances have also changed these past few years: I have an amazing boyfriend who shares the same passion and drive to see the world, I have graduated, trained & now in a secure job that allows me to save enough, and finally, I am fortunate enough to have a job that allows me the time to take a few big trips a year.
In hindsight I’m glad I didn’t go backpacking straight after college or uni. These past few years I’ve changed a lot, I’ve grown up (a little bit…). Now when I go traveling I will appreciate it and learn more than I would have 5 years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to party & let my hair down but I equally enjoy experiencing new cultures, meeting new people and learning new things.
I realise I sound like I’ve never been abroad before… I have! Many times, to many different places, mostly in Europe and once to Australia. The difference now is that I want to explore countries that are worlds apart from how we live, to experience a different way of life and to learn more about the world. My first big trip I’ll be taking in just 5 days from now! More on this in my next post!
Au revoir! Sarah x
