Travelling from east to west – and everywhere inbetween
If I’m left to my own devices for too long, I travel.
After I finally finished my wearisome degree in Biochemistry, there remained the question – what the hell was I supposed to do now? While my overly zealous coursemates joined grad-schemes, got jobs or *shudder* enrolled in further study… I was left thinking that all of the options available to me sounded dreadful.
So I moved to Australia and travelled the world for 19 months.
It was pretty epic. I made a lot of memories. Visited 14 countries in the end I think, and came back pretty fatigued with the whole thing and actually keen to get a job. Can you imagine? I remember the thing I missed most was having STUFF. And somewhere to put it that wasn’t my rucksack.
For the three years since, I’ve lived in London. I worked on my career in data visualisation, settled into a 9 to 5 kinda life and traveling was relegated to something I did for just 25 days a year.
After a disastrous year that ended in July, I felt ready to tackle something new. I’ve tried a few things since but nothing has felt right. Until it struck me that it was time to pursue the nomadic lifestyle once again.
So join me on my blog as I apply for my WHV to Japan, prepare myself for the trip and ramble aimlessly about how much I love travelling. Thanks for stopping by!
