You’re It! Travel Tag

‘Tag! You’re it! A travel tag’ is a YouTube channel tag that I found over @ Travelling Natural. I don’t have a YouTube channel, or at least I don’t use the channel that I have, so I thought I would adapt the tag and do it myself! It’s a snapshot questionnaire about all things travel, so if you have a blog or a YouTube channel, please consider yourself tagged an join in the fun!

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie

When you think about buying a new book, and you aren’t sure about what book you’re actually going to buy, a book cover plays a huge part in actually making that choice. I do love a shiny bright cover as much as the next guy. I also love a clever cover, or a new take on a classic. As you can tell, this is an awesome topic for me, so I have taken it and ran with it.

For all of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved, click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie”

Let’s Go Here, There, and Everywhere!

Ever since I can  remember, I have loved maps. Yes it is a little bit nerdy, yes it is not a popular or cool thing these days, but I love them. I have multiple atlases, even more maps for my walls, and 1 globe (and my parents have suggested they are going to buy me a big one for my graduation present. Not gonna lie, I am excited!) I guess this is a lot of why I ended up doing a Geography degree. I’ve always been interested in places and maps and why things are where they are, how they formed etc.

I have been lucky enough to travel quite a lot throughout my life. My parents are quite into travelling and so have taken me places, or helped me afford opportunities, to go to new and exciting places. I have a little tab at the side of this blog called my travels (it shows a map of all the countries I have been to) and if you have looked at it, you will see that my bucket list features a lot of travel based ‘to-dos’. At the time of writing I have visited 20 countries: USA, Canada, Barbados, Iceland, Kenya, Scotland, Wales, France, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Italy, and Switzerland. I have had some awesome experiences, and it really has given me the travelling bug. The biggest problem, it makes you want to visit more places.

While at University, I realised something: I have absolutely no idea what I want to do career-wise. (Well no, I would love to become a writer of some sort, travel writer, film critic, author…but I don’t know how I would get into that, or that I am actually any good at writing.) So I thought, I have worked throughout my studies, I have saved money, lets take off travelling and put-off the real world  and the decision making process. And so, in September, I am going to do just that with my flatmate from second year University.
