Places and plans

I started my 6 month adventure on 16 April 2018, after many months of planning and years and years of dreaming. I left my job, friends and family, and swapped stability for living out of a bag on a tight budget. It was a huge adventure, and whilst it didn’t always go to plan it was without a doubt the best thing I’ve ever done.

I never finished blogging about it, but hopefully I’ll start to add in some more photos from the last 3 months of the trip, and some tips and advice for other fellow solo female travelers.
