Trekking the Great Wall of China with The Mental Health Foundation

October 28, 2018 No Comments

 It has been 1.5 years in the making, but I finally stepped foot on the Great Wall of China. It took so long to get here, but went by so quickly. If someone said I had to do it all again tomorrow I wouldn’t even hesitate to say yes. I knew that it was going to be a trip like no other, but I don’t think I was prepared for just how much of an…

How to manage travel anxiety and see the world!

October 12, 2018 No Comments

Let me make one thing VERY clear straight out the gate, today, we are talking about MANAGING travel anxiety, not overcoming it, not getting rid of it or ignoring it, MANAGING it. Too many people talk about overcoming these feelings, but if you have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, or you are prone to regular anxiety attacks, overcoming that anxiety may not be an option. That doesn’t mean it’s game over for your super awesome,…

The Power of ‘F***k it’ and How to Use it

September 23, 2018 No Comments

I very recently watched the amazing film that is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and I cried. At first I was like ‘Why are you crying? Nothing sad is happening yet?!’ But then I realised why the film was effecting me so much, it was because I realised that I was Walter Mitty, I had spent years of my life dreaming about a more exciting life, a life where I could travel and see the…

Visiting Grasmere: Gingerbread and Evil Swans

September 22, 2018 No Comments

 As you know, I’ve been trying to find places to get some trek training in before heading off to China in just 3 weeks! Luckily for me, I am only a 1 hour+ drive away from the beautiful Lake District and one of my all time favourite places, Grasmere! If you’ve never stepped foot in the Lake District, it is 100% somewhere you need to get to when visiting the UK. This is why I…

I’m Working in New Zealand with BUNAC!

August 12, 2018 No Comments

 That’s right you lovely awesome people! I am moving all the way to the other side of the world to take part in BUNAC’s Work New Zealand programme!  I can finally tell you all about it!! I booked this epic adventure after my 27th birthday, where I had a slight ‘OMG I”M NEARLY 30!’ moment and decided to uproot my entire life and take it in a new direction. Creating your dream life For years…

Manchester JigTalk at Alston Bar & Beef

August 4, 2018 No Comments

  I currently reside in the beautiful city of Manchester, I consider myself an honorary Manc, even though I’m from just down the road and closer (both genetically and physically) to Liverpool… I’m getting way off topic already. My point is, Manchester is my home and even though I love to travel, I also love to discover new places to see, eat, drink and enjoy in my home city. That’s one of the reasons I wanted…

Fjällräven Kånken 15″ Laptop Backpack Review

July 29, 2018 2 Comments

 I travel a lot, as you know, not just to different countries, but also to and from work. That’s right, I’m a commuter. That’s why I decided to invest in something a bit sturdier than my cheap Vans backpack and the Fjällräven Kånken was the most obvious choice. A new Fjällräven store opened in Manchester not long ago and since then, us Mancs have been going Fjällräven crazy! You’ll see at least 1 in 10 people walking…

I’m trekking the Great Wall of China: Training Plan

July 14, 2018 No Comments

You may remember this little post I did about me raising money for the Mental Health Foundation, by trekking the Great Wall of China. I had to raise a minimum of £2,520 by July and guess what… I did it! However, they did tell me after I raised the 80% of the minimum fundraising amount that they’d moved the minimum fundraising deadline to 6-weeks before the trip… but it’s ok, because now I only need to…

A Long Weekend in London on a Budget

June 27, 2018 No Comments

I recently took a trip to London to watch one of my all-time favourite bans, the Foo Fighters! Yes, they were as amazing as always. But I’m currently living on a shoestring and needed to do London on a budget, even though people told me it was not possible. The thing is, getting around London is actually pretty cheap and once you’ve mastered the main tube lines, you’ll be laughing all the way to the main…

How I changed my mindset to make solo travel easier

June 20, 2018 1 Comment

Solo travel is terrifying when you first start out, even now I get nervous when I’m about to head out on a trip alone. Even though, like many aspects of life, it does get easier with practice, sometimes it takes a few mindset shifts to really get the hang of it. I always feel that slight panic before I board a plane to a foreign country, especially as I am trying to visit a completely different…
