About

Hi there,

I’m Ellie, I’m 25, and I’m from the UK.

I first got the travel bug after spending a month in Borneo a few years ago, and two months in Central America after I graduated. Having then worked in advertising for 3 years, I decided to take a career break to go on a longer adventure, having never taken a prolonged period of time out after school or university when many of my friends did.

There’s one key difference to the trip I’m on now; I’m travelling solo, which I had never expected to do. Having always loved writing, I thought I’d combine my two passions for writing and travel in this blog, as reassurance (and mostly amusement) to those also travelling alone on the trip of a lifetime.

I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures, and please feel free to say hi!
