My name's Megan pronounced meegan but that looks far too weird, no one wants a name that looks like that. Anyway I digress, about me.. I'm a twenty something year old Aussie expat currently residing in London, yes literally the opposite side of the world to my beloved home down under. Do I miss it? mmmm yes and no. I miss sunshine and tanned limbs, high temperatures, tim tams, and of course loved ones. But I don't miss routine.. I don't miss encountering small-minded & unappreciative folk who've never left the place.. I don't miss going to the same pub in the same area eating the same food and seeing the same people.. I don't miss spending an entire years worth of savings just to take one two week holiday - a holiday which I'm required to spend a total of at least 18 hours inside a giant metal tube in the sky if I wish to go anywhere that's not new Zealand or the opposite side of Australia. So I suppose yes I do miss it, but not all that much! I've been here for almost four years and I think i'll stick around for a few more. I adore London.. there's no question that it's a tough place to live, big city life truly is a hard grind, but alot of people become so wrapped up in the undesirable factors that they miss out entirely on all that's fabulous about this place. And London is only part of the fun! With Europe a short and inexpensive flight away its fan-bloody-tastic living here. I've travelled to so many places in the last few years, in fact if I do a quick count I've visited a total of 28 different countries in my lifetime and only two of those were before my time in London, one of them being Australia! do you count your country of birth?... I don't know, I'm doing it!
My life may not have turned out exactly as I had planned it or as I thought that it would... but Crikey I wouldn't have it any other way. A cold shiver runs down my spine at the very thought of not having travelled... at not having taken this path. So I suppose that brings me to the reason behind starting this blog. At first I just wanted to write because I enjoy it, and it made sense to write about my travels.. it started as an online travel journal of sorts. But at the same time I wish to inspire others to do the same, to leave the nest and explore the world! I hope I achieve that, even if I only inspire one person to do it, i will have reached my goal for this blog.
If you're looking for luxury travel tips you're in the wrong place! when I travel I seek the cheapest and most culturally rich experience so naturally the focus of my blog is authentic, affordable travel. It involves hostels, camping, getting lost, and eating with the locals. If you're a glamour who's all about the lux life I fear my content will be of no value to you!
I hope you enjoy it! please let me know what you think, any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
Over and out! x
