In the new year I’ll be writing a series of posts dedicated to aspiring travellers, particularly those who haven’t travelled solo before!
The posts will be focussed on the process of thinking about travelling and early travel plans. For me it will be a reflective exercise looking back to the beginning of the process I took to get to Australia.
When I started this blog I wanted to write for the people like me who were planning on travelling, but had no idea where to start. I didn’t manage to write these posts before I left for Australia, but now the time is right. I feel I can look back and write reassurance posts for those who have been newly infected with the travel bug.
At the moment the So you want to travel? series will include:
So you think you want to travel?
So you want to interrail?
So you want to travel to Australia?
So you’ve decided to travel after university?
So you’re about to go travelling?
By no means am I an expert in travel, in fact I am writing these posts as a novice for novice travellers. These posts will draw on my experiences travelling, from my first time backpacking on my interrail trip, to planning my trip to Australia. Undertaking solo-travel for the first time is scary, and these posts are designed to talk you through the early stages of the process with the aim of offering advice and reassurance.
Ultimately I want to help readers build confidence as they plan their trips however big or small. These posts won’t include some of the more technical sides of travel, though important information will be given, it will not be excessive.
These posts are meant to be a helping hand and a friendly voice as you figure out what it is you want to do and where you want to go.
I’m so excited to start this series in 2017, if you’re a newbie backpacker with any questions I’d love to hear from you!
Until then, happy travels!
