I first started running around four years ago. To face the facts I needed to get fit in someway or another and shed the uni pounds! I had always only ever ran 5 miles or less; country roads, beautiful tracks, and occasionally on a treadmill, although I hate treadmill running. I feel as if you’re … More A long way just for a banana!
My tenth month of living in Australia has crept up extremely quickly. When you’re so immersed into something time just slips away. How is it that I have only a few weeks left here? Travelling has become such a big part of who I am. In the back of my mind I am always concocting … More I miss Marmite on toast.
My time as an Au Pair is sadly over and came to an abrupt, unexpected end earlier this past weekend. Something that I thought would never happen, especially my time being an Au Pair. But as it is there is always two sides to every story. My host family has her side and I respect … More See ya kids!

When it comes to exercise as a traveller its something you find hard to fit in unless you’re at a standstill in some place, not to mention the eating and switching of good food to bad. I really enjoy keeping fit but have to admit when I get out of the swing of it I … More September Squats!
I received many comments from friends and family when I left the UK second time round to continue travelling; “wow I wish I could do what your were doing?” “I’ve always wanted to travel!” Best bit of advice anyone can get is to just do it. Travelling is such a precious and privileged experience that … More Sydney to China
When I first started looking into travelling my first stop was the option of Au Pairing in another country, considering it gave me the comfort and stress free option of accommodation sorted, and being able to live the lifestyle of a local. I originally researched into American Au Pairing; living over there for a year … More Au Pair Life.
Three weeks have past and it felt like yesterday I was on the road living life in a camper. Things change so quickly when your travelling. It’s the one thing I have learnt over the past year, if you are to plan something it usually happens last-minute as plans usually change along the way. I … More The start of something new…
