Before you start to explore my site there are a few things you should know about me. I believe in telling the truth and giving full disclosure so you, as my reader, can be fully informed about what you are getting in to. I love to travel and create scrapbooks of those experiences, so my blog will be a showcase of both of those passions… and now 4 random facts about me:
- I LOVE food but I am a very picky eater– I feel this is important to mention because as a travel blog you might expect or hope to see me eating all sorts of exotic food – I will not…. well maybe… but no guarantees! I do guarantee that I will write about the amazing food I do eat in different locations and will give all you other picky eaters tips on how to survive the unfamiliar food locales.
- I am in no way a skilled photographer or a well articulated writer – In fact, I am neither of those things. I love to take photographs and I try hard to get good shots but I am not great at it! As for writing, I am a terrible speller and an unclear writer… but I’ll try really hard just for you!
- I have a secret love of terrible tourist photo ops – I love the ‘forever alone’ shots of independent travelers with a big head in the foreground and a tiny attraction behind. They make me laugh, and they make me real, I hope you will also embrace your odd ball photos and love them for what they are!
- As much as I love to travel, I also love coming home – especially to my bed, there is nothing like your own, am I right? I could tell you that I am going to quit my job and spend my life travelling the world – which would be awesome – but also a lie. In reality, I love my job (I’m a teacher) and my life at home and therefore my wanderlust will always be limited by both of those things.
Ok, full disclosure – are you wondering why you should bother reading my blog after learning all of that?? Well ask yourself, are you an ordinary person in search of a random adventure? Do you also have a strong sense of wanderlust? Are you looking for creative inspiration? If so then I will do my best to provide you with some information and tips to help you make the most of your travelling and crafting. I will share my experiences – the good and the bad – so you can avoid my mistakes and learn from my success. And if nothing else we can bond over our love for the big headed tourist shots – I know you have some, it’s ok, we all do!!
