It’s been a while since I posted on this blog. Around 4 months to be exact. The last few months of 2016 were crazy, in a good way. I finally figured out that I’d like to start a career in travel, so I abandoned my plans to do a working holiday in Australia. I booked a flight back to the UK, and 12 days later, was offered a job in travel.

Between working full time, moving to a new city and seeing friends, I honestly haven’t thought much about my blog. I really want to start writing on here regularly again, probably a post a week. I need to finish writing about my South East Asia trip (mostly where I visited in Vietnam) and also some thought pieces about the whole trip.

Returning to a full time job doesn’t mean I’m ready to hang my backpack up just yet. In my current job, I get a three day weekend every 5 weeks and a decent amount of annual leave so I’m determined to fit in a few short European breaks this year. I already have trips planned to Ireland and Carcassonne in France this year. Later in the year, I may get time to go somewhere a little further afield, but in all honesty, there’s so much of Europe I haven’t yet seen that I’ll be happy if all my trips this year are in Europe.

So basically, there’ll be a mix of posts about South East Asia, travel tips, trips from 2017 and possibly even some thought pieces. If anyone has any questions, or any particular topics you’d like me to write about, perhaps a country I’ve visited that you’d like to know more about, please let me know and I’ll try to include it in a blog post.
