So if you don’t know already, I’m Sarah from Scotland and I began my travels in November 2015.
I always knew I wanted to go travelling at some point in my life so I started a savers account in 2012 or 2013. It wasn’t until the start of 2015 that I realised I was now in my mid-twenties and still saying one day I’ll go travelling. I was wasting my days away working in a call centre and living for the weekend – I really hated this boring lifestyle and needed out!
In May 2015 I applied for an Australian working holiday visa, booked a one-way ticket to Bangkok in November 2015 and I have been travelling ever since.
It is so cliche to say but travelling alone has been the best decision I have ever made. I have achieved so much, experienced so many different cultures and become more confident by pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Plus having the freedom to wake up and just decide where I want to go next is bliss.
The only downside of living out of a backpack is having to carry my backpack, accidentally leaving my belongings on buses and in hostels, and because you’re moving around so much you end up throwing a lot of food away in Western countries.
If you read my first blog post it explains why I decided to finally start blogging . One day I’ll organise this site more and post about all the crazy things I’ve been doing prior to starting this blog (February 2017) but for now it’s just going to be current content. **Update August 2017** I’d like to say current content but I haven’t updated this in months because I have been crazy busy.
Countries I have visited :
- UK (Home)
- Netherlands x2
- Greek Islands – Zante, Crete and Corfu
- USA (Florida x2)
- Thailand x2
- Vietnam x2
- Singapore x2
- New Zealand
I would list all the countries which I want to visit but it’s basically everywhere.
