My Travels

Looking over Rio Napo
I’ve travelled a fair bit over the last few years, and sadly there’s simply not enough time to write about everywhere I’ve been – because I seem to always be heading somewhere new!

So here’s a list of where I”ve been since I started travelling ‘seriously’, as it were – and my vague travel plans for the future!

Future Travel Plans

I’m currently studying for my Masters in Non-Fiction Writing in London, so travelling is relegated to shorter trips for the next two years.

But as soon as I’m finished with my degree, I’ll be off again — and there are too many places I want to travel to! Scandinavia, Central America, Indonesia… I don’t know where I’ll be, but I know it’ll be good!
