Sharing stuff online is not natural for me as generally I’m really quiet and really shy. It takes time for me to let people in and, with people who are just acquaintances, I’m a fairly private person. I’ve never even done social media. So why on earth have I decided to start blogging?
Basically because I’m going on a great big adventure to see the world and this is the best way for people to know where I am and what I’m doing. Seeing my friends every couple of weeks for a catch-up will no longer be an option. I’ve also spent a lot of time reading travel blogs whilst planning my trip and it’s only fair that I provide information about my experiences that could then help someone else.
I have always loved writing but my skills are fairly rusty. Hopefully sharing my journey as I travel round the world will help me get into the habit of writing again. Traveling alone means that I won’t have someone specific to discuss things with at the end of each day so I hope my blog will act as a substitute for that.
So bear with me as I feel my way into the interwebs and learn to share my experiences – this is all very new to me.
