I created this blog in 2010 as a way to keep in touch with friends and family and as a way to share my experiences when I moved to Malawi to work with Engineers Without Borders. Since then, I’ve lived in the United Kingdom for eight months and have had the opportunity to visit quite a few different countries. I love visiting new places, trying new things, and experiencing new cultures! As I’ve come to discover in the last few years, I also love sharing those experiences.
The primary purpose of this blog has been to write about my travel experiences as they’re happening, but recently I’ve decided that I’d like to try and expand my blog a little bit more. It’s nice to take some time and reflect on the places I’ve visited once I’ve returned home and to think back on what experiences I most enjoyed and others that I didn’t really like. I hope that sharing my traveling experiences might encourage other people to visit some of the places I’ve been.
One thing I don’t like about blogs is that it can be difficult to reference a post after it’s been posted. I’ve started writing some more general reviews about different locations that I’ve visited and I’ve decided to start posting pages on specific cities and countries. I hope that by focusing on specific places, my blog will be more accessible and easy to reference for people interested in doing their own traveling, or others that are just interested in reading up on a certain city or country.
Over the next few months, I hope to post a series of pages along the top of my blog that focus on the highlights of specific countries and cities that I’ve visited. Feel free to check out these reviews if you’re thinking of traveling yourself, or to just continue following along with my blog!
