No this is not a Meatloaf fan site (although I do love 80s rock). I’m Katherine; A 30+ female adventurer, solo traveler, adrenaline junkie, aspiring photographer and skateboard owner. In September 2017 I decided to quit the rat race, leaving the pressures of city living to hit the open road.
As a solo traveler I’ve been to Poland, Portugal, Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand and am currently adventuring around Latin America.
Why the time was right to get the hell out of here
Firstly, for years I was wilting under the confines of the city; the 9-5 treadmill, the constant house changes forced upon you as a renter, the lack of real green space etc etc. Secondly, I sadly split after a seriously long term and very special relationship which left me feeling utterly lost. And as a result I found myself spiralling into bit of a black hole with no real direction.
I needed a big change to reset my senses and find my happy place again and I knew that the usual tactic of getting drunk and head banging wasn’t going to cut it.
I’d always loved to travel and had a bucketlist that was starting to look like a gap year travel brochure, so I thought if I am going to “find myself” again I may as well do it somewhere awesome.
So this is my escape TO the real world. To find out what the hell it’s all about, to find out what I’m about and to share these experiences with you. I hope this blog can inspire others to realise;
- You’re never too old to travel
- It’s ok to travel alone (in fact its awesome)
- Everyone has their own path in life
I hope you’ll join me on the journey – I guarantee it will be one hell of a ride.
