& so the adventure begins…

"Fill your life with experiences not things, have stories to tell and not things to show"
-unknown

Jobs, the colour of my room, places to live, things to do and what to wear has always been something that my mind has never settled on but one thing that has my heart is adventure and discovering new places…

For me, there is just something magical about hearing the same words that we speak in a different language or watching people go about their daily routine and experiencing new food from all over the world (and of course, the coffee!)

My goal this year was to travel, I wanted to see as many places as I could within one year and write about all of my experiences along the way. However as I said in my very first post, there are some situations that are out of our control which is something myself and my family experienced at the beginning of this year. Taking a whole year out to travel was no longer an option to me but after taking a step back and figuring out what I wanted, I thought taking one month away from it all wouldn't hurt anything so I did exactly that.

I no longer have a job.
I am no longer saving my money.

However…
I am the happiest I have ever been… to me, this shows that us English people work too hard, we want to much and when we have it, it's no longer enough so take it from a girl who thought money was everything… it's not. Happiness is key and if you are happy and have enough to pay your bills then you are going to be okay.

Not only am I travelling being a celiac which is where you cannot eat any form of wheat, rye, barley or malt. I have also decided to take on a vegan lifestyle which makes eating in new and foreign places quite difficult but also makes it all the more exciting when you come across that cafe that you have been searching so long for…

Myself and my cousin are on the hunt for all things tasty so stay tuned!

First stop…
