About Me

The Younger Years

From a very young age I had a passion for travel. My mum is British and my dad is Bajan. Every summer was spent in England either shopping in London or visiting family. I developed very fond memories of England during these trips and London is one of my favorite cities today. At the age of 11 years old, my mum was determined to show us more of Europe. We did a coach tour around France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, and Holland and it was an amazing experience.
In 2008 my sister and I went to Australia together to visit friends in Sydney for 3 weeks. Another epic adventure but this time on the other side of the world, my first long haul flight. I fell in love with Australia.

Morocco

After University, it was time to start work and when my sister finished her Masters she was gifted with a trip to Morocco and I joined her. After one crazy week in Morocco and a few days in London after I realized I had to travel more and see more of the world. We met so many amazing people on this trip. I got to explore a country that was never really on my bucket list, and enjoyed every second of the trip. I had not even done a lot of research on Morocco so the whole thing was such an adventure. I also learned that you can get by even without speaking the native language.

South Africa

The following year, desperate to “get off the rock” I started searching google flights and found a cheaper than expected ticket to Johannesburg, South Africa. I bought it that week and 6 weeks later I was in South Africa. It was an eye opening and educational trip. I also learnt that you can travel anywhere for cheap at the right time of year.

From Peru to New Zealand to Iceland

Three months after I got back I had caught the travel bug again, the only way to fix it? Booking a trip. I booked a 7 day escape to Peru during Christmas break of my Masters program and hiked the Inca Trail. When I got home I realized the Masters program wasn’t working so I left and not even 2 months later I found a cheap deal to New Zealand. You see, my sister was there for her PhD and I hadn’t seen her in 10 months so how could I not go?! I surprised her and had an epic 4 week trip around the country!
As soon as I got home my boyfriend and I started planning our birthday trip to Iceland and the following month finalized all the bookings for that epic road trip we did in October.
I’m planning to continue travelling as much as I can. I prefer a budget travel style with hostels and local transport which is always exciting. I am always searching google flights for cheap flight deals to exotic locations. I love planning trips and doing the adventurous travel itineraries where you get to explore new ‘off the beaten track’ locations.
