I don’t know what it is about January, but every year it rolls around with a familiar feeling of dread in the pit of my stomach (mashed up with all dat Crimbo choc). Because while seemingly everyone else in the world is out moulding their version of a ‘new me’ and pushing out resolutions all over the shop, I always get the same unsettling feeling, which I hate to say can only be described as a seeeeeerious case of CBA.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays (whether real or made up, it’s still a holiday in my books), because deep down, for some weird, morbid reason, I just love being scared out of my mind. Within reason, of course!

What does travel mean to you? A yearly holiday to de-stress from the day job? A spontaneous weekend away to celebrate, or surprise a loved one? A journey of self discovery? A job? A distant dream? Well to me, lately, it’s become so much more than any of the above, and at the risk of […]
So, as if quitting my job with no concrete plan wasn’t enough, this trip so far has definitely been a run of doing everything for the first time, and taking one step at a time out of my comfort zone. I had gotten so stuck in thinking that I wouldn’t like something before I tried […]
