“The first thing you have to understand about me is that my brain works in two halves. The first half is consumed by a child-like enthusiasm for all things. This is the part of me that can’t wait to explore and see new places. The other half, is characterised by a severe misgiving that any new life experience is going to kill me. As you would imagine, finding a happy medium between these two personalities can be stressful and exhausting.”

Hey, I’m Sheree, the awkward British wanderluster behind Winging the World. My story starts the same as many others. Like most people, when I left education I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. My Criminology degree was at best niche, and at worst pretty damn useless. I had no idea what I was going to do.

So I began to start winging it. Genuinely, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. The world still terrifies me, but isn’t that what makes it beautiful?

Whether it’s volunteering or backpacking, there are hundreds of ways to see the world; it’s just a case of trial and error to find what suits you. Through this site, I want to prove that if an awkward wimp like me can travel, then anyone can. That’s what I hope you get from this blog anyway, I don’t want to scare you to death and force you to live out the rest of your days in a cave…
