Thailand

Can totally see why this is a gap year destination. Culture, beaches, parties and elephants, it is just such a fun, beautiful country. Even though we didn’t cover the North as much as the South, I think I can say its amazing all over. First destination in Thailand was Bangkok, which we heard was stuffy,…

Tokyo

Tokyo was the most culturally different city we visited. I loved it. Everything about it was sleek, organised, and just fascinating. We arrived late at night, and hopped into a taxi to stay at a family friends apartment in Akasaka, which turned out to be a perfect location as it was only a 5 minute…

Hong Kong

Firstly, hello! I am back from probably the most adventurous, fulfilling and expensive 13 weeks of my life. I loved most of it, obviously there were the odd moments where all I wanted was to be home with my family. However most of the time, I fell in love with the adventure filled days, from…

Countdown to Travelling: 2 Weeks!!!

2 weeks before I go away, a week till I quit my job. SO bloody excited to quit work, it’s been a long 7 months working there for almost everyday! All worth it though (I think). Like I did genuinely hate the job at times, like for a while I used to just get home…

Countdown to Travelling: 3 Weeks

Ok so I may have skipped 11 weeks on this countdown, but hey ho. 3 weeks left! So excited now yet also beginning to feel a bit nervous, as I have never gone to Asia, and also never been this far away from home, and never been away for 3 months! However hopefully it will…

I GOT INTO UNIVERSITY!!!

I GOT INTO UNIVERSITY. I am so, so, so unbelievably relieved/excited its crazy. Yesterday, I opened my emails after work, wondering if UCAS have emailed. 50% of me wanting them to email me, other 50% not wanting them to email me. But hazar, by the luck of the Gods, there in front of me on…

“Where Do You See Yourself in 5 Years?”

I cannot explain how much I hate this question. It just makes me feel incredibly under pressure to say an impressive answer, as if I totally have a plan of what I want to do. It’s unfair, to expect a person to know what they’ll be doing in a few years time. Life’s unpredictable, stuff…

How to Try to Stay Positive When You Feel Like Shit

In my previous post, I explained how recently I have been uninspired, not looking at the world optimistically, and just spending most of my time worrying and panicking. It is weird; some days I wake up, thinking ‘You know what, work won’t be too bad today, so-and-so is on my shift with me, and it’s…

Packing List for Travelling

7 weeks today until travelling begins… crazy to think I am going next month! Still remember the exact moment when we booked it, and paid off the flights and the tour. So with around 2 months to go, and because I am getting ridiculously excited, I am already thinking about what to pack. I have…

Panic and Fear for the Future

Hello! It has been too long since I was last on here, but truth be told, I’ve been feeling incredibly uninspired to write or do anything, all because I am constantly fearing and worrying for the future if it doesn’t go a certain way, even though I have no control. I have been organised –…

How 2016 Was The Best Yet Also The Worst

Its safe to say that 2016 was probably the worst year. Many awful things happened in many different topics, in politics, celebrity culture, plan crashes, racist attacks, and my personal life.  The number of horrifying attacks and shootings that happened  this year seems unbelievable – police shootings on the innocent, the Orlando shooting, the Istanbul…
