Let me tell you a little bit about me…
Hello there, I’m Katie, a slightly too-tall blonde Brit with a love for languages and an over-active sense of adventure. I’m a book-loving, colourful, meditation enthusiast that’s wavering between vegetarianism and veganism.
As a Spanish and Portuguese student at the University of Southampton, I spent June 2014- February 2015 in the small town of Bonito, Brazil, working as a tubing monitor through AIESEC in a tropical paradise. After my time in Brasil, three months of travelling introduced me to the delights of Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. I’m now more of a travel addict than ever and have a desperate need for sunshine and regular hits of foreign cultures.
I’m currently on year abroad take 2 on a placement at the University of Colima, Mexico, whilst building up my freelance translation and copywriting portfolio.
So why am I blogging? Travelling is one long life lesson, and things don’t always go smoothly, but I’d like to think the tips I pick up along the way could help someone else on the same adventure. I hope I can make a few fellow traveller’s lives easier by sharing my experiences.
My Travel Ethos
Take the time to learn the language and gain a little insight into the local culture.
Do my best to travel sustainably, support local businesses and eat vegetarian or vegan when I can.
Travel slowly, making the most of each destination before moving on.
Let’s explore this miraculous world together.
