Are you really ever ready to travel, it seems that there was always something or someone holding me back, even now, I'm working in a good position, have a great little house in the city, have great friends, a promising relationship, and an amazing social life, but after true reflection, that something was trepidation, and the someone, me. After years of procrastination it was time to bite the bullet, pushing all the things aside that were my excuse for waiting, I bought a one way ticket to London. I mean, all those things will be here when I get back... right???
I have a strong interest in Western Europe and Africa, but I have no solid plans other than arriving in London on the 7th September 2010. I have not researched the UK or the rest of Europe on places to stay, what to do, safety, climate, accessibility... I know nothing.
It seems that I am always on the move, unable to commit to one place, one job, one person, constantly feeling slightly lost and confused. Travelling has always been on the horizon; but It wasn't until someone very clever said "you will never be able to settle until you have travelled" that I decided it was time to send myself out on the solo travel challenge.
The blogs to follow will be a collection of not only just the places I've been and the people I've met, but how these experiences have affected me personally. They will be a true and often raw account of everything that shocks, scares, challenges, questions and defies me.
I am determined to find myself.
