It has been almost three weeks since I left England on my first ever solo trip to the other side of the world and I couldn’t be further from the girl I was when I first started this blog. I am currently sat in a hostel common room, fighting off a very persistent mosquito, wearing baggy pants and a t-shirt referencing aliens and smiling to myself at achieving what I once thought was impossible.
You see ever since I was 16 all I have ever wanted to do was travel the world. I’m a typical Pisces, a super creative, emotional dreamer, full of wanderlust. The idea of seeing the most beautiful places in the world filled me with excitement but the thought of being alone in a foreign place and walking into a hostel full of people I didn’t know filled me with sheer terror. It was all I wanted, but it just seemed impossible. Yet here I am, 28 years old, full of confidence, able to approach and talk to anyone, completely independent and chilling in a hostel full of people I can call friends, in Thailand! I have accomplished the one thing that scared me most in the world. What an incredible feeling! <3
