The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

So I’ve got around a week left at work and it’s all starting to dawn on me… I’m quitting my job, moving out of London (and into my boyfriend’s parents’ house, eek!), packing a rucksack and heading off to the other side of the world for six months. Either one of those things would be quite stressful in itself, let alone all rolled in to one!

But heyho, let’s not do things by halves…

On the old checklist of tasks before heading off I’ve already ticked off multiple items, including sinking my life savings into flights, vaccinations, insurance etc, and nearer to the bottom of my list was ‘start a blog’.

I ummed and ahhed about the cliché of making a travel blog but it seemed to be the question I came up against most when talking to friends/family/colleagues about my plans. So here we go… I’m starting one… mainly to reassure the old parentals that I’m ok, but also to share the next few months with my nearest and dearest without bombarding them with an onslaught of social media posts (although I’ll probably still do that folks!). I’m not promising that I’ll document my whole travels – I might post one update and think ‘meh, it’s not for me’, or conversely I could absolutely love it and (god forbid) make a career out of it.

See ya later, Sophie x
