“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 exhausting and stressful…” ✌️
Not content with limiting my uncouth appearance and personality to the UK, I have embarked on a worldwide mission to blunder around the globe whenever possible. Sadly, I don’t have a clue what I am doing, which is where Winging the World comes in.
Since the inception of this blog, I have found myself in many different countries but I am essentially still as useless as when I first walked out of my front door. In all honesty, the world terrifies me, but isn’t that what makes it beautiful?
Well I say beautiful, falling in a squat toilet isn’t so great and neither is nearly sliding off an active volcano. Aside from that though… oh wait. All of my travel experiences are like this!
Despite my rookie mistakes and relentless anxieties, I want to prove that if a gawky 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…)
Luckily for you, I won’t just talk about me here. Knowing that I am liable to be a bit of a disaster, I have roped my boyfriend Tim into being the guts behind our travel-couple outfit. Essentially, I propose cool ideas and then think of 10,000 reasons why we can’t possibly follow through with them and he tells me I am ridiculous and we do it anyway. That’s just how our lives work.
When I’m not holding up airport security or attracting unwanted attention from feral animals, you can find me sitting in front of a fire with a book and a chunk of mature cheddar, complete with a big blob of ketchup. I also write other stuff on the internet.
So that’s me pretty much. Hopefully, you will find this blog useful and enjoy reading about my mishaps if only to brighten your own day. Feel free to reach out with any questions via social media or email, I’ll try my best to help! (I have plenty of mistakes under my belt now so my advice is getting better.)
