Hiya, I’m Sarah, a 27-year-old Australian girl whose only direction seems to be going around the world. My greatest achievement to date (and forever) is being caught on Google Maps – Street View; although getting in the top 10 of slither.io was pretty neat as well.
My travelling style is meeting 3-day best friends, sitting in a café planning or reading, going out drinking/dancing, checking out anything ghost related! Exploring everywhere by feet, cursing myself for not being fitter whilst hiking, sleeping on overnight buses, learning to sleep through it all in mixed hostel dorms and generally trying to enjoy every mysterious, bizarre and wonderful aspect of it.
I’ve always written diaries, and I still have the one from 2004. Yes, it is embarrassing. When I started to become addicted to the internet [shout out to Neopets] I saw myself making ones through Blogger and then in university – Tumblr.
To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
This will be my third blog based around travel – however, previously it was more journal-style entries for my family/friends than a place that holds information, resources and itinerary plans for others to enjoy.
I’ll talk about my mishaps (there are a lot), as well as troubles (also a lot ), how things luckily go right , how I cope as a solo traveller, travelling with old friends, meeting and making new friends as well as anything that comes up along the way!
It was good, really, that this external world still existed, if only as a place of refuge.
Through this, I’ll recommend books, podcasts and Netflix downloads to get you through that next leg. Travel Tips such as essentials, capsule wardrobes and having the best carry on. I’ll also just post about my general travels including where to go, what to see and what to do. I’ll always link or credit where I’ve found sources, or if I’ve used other blogs.
