This is the standard introduction piece – who I am, what I want, and why you should check back for my next post.
Who am I? My name is Sam, I am a 22 year old Australian girl. I am, in 2014, having a travelling/working year between my honours and masters degrees. I currently have red hair, but this is subject to change.
What do I want? I want to write about travel: my travel, your travel, travel concepts, travel photography, travel woes, travel lists… And I don’t want to just talk at you about travel, I want to use the experiences I have had to help out anyone looking for tips. In essence, I am huge travel nerd – I just want to create somewhere to talk about how awesome this planet is.
I will also be posting photographs of the amazing places I have been to, as well as the incredible food I eat – in essence, travel porn.
Exhibit A (places)
Exhibit B (food)
Why should you check back? Because if you’re the type of person who Googles travel writing, you’re the type of person who will want to know where I’ve been and where I’m going next! Who knows? I may have the perfect secret to travelling with just a carry on, (I seem to do ok). Or maybe I’m independently wealthy and will give out huge prizes to loyal readers? (I’m not, but I would if I was!) Or maybe you just think I sound funny and want something new to laugh at every few days.
I have had a healthy dose of both organised tours and independent travel, I will write on both ends of the spectrum as well as all the nitty gritty in between. I will write lists, I will write reviews, I will write opinion pieces, and I will write about things that interest the readers! (That’s you)
Please check back, and let me know what you think!
