Travel Blog: My Heading Photo explained


This is my personal favourite of photographs I have taken. This was the first real foreign holiday of my adult life, and the exact spot it was taken from was my favourite place.

This was a little town on the Albanian coast, called Ksamil (or Kas-mal depending who you ask….but that’s another story). After a long, warm and eventful journey down the entire coastline of a country where the native language was one of the most difficult to pick up (even the basics) I have encountered, and people fluent in English were rare as unicorns, we arrived in the beautiful, sunny piece of heaven.

And despite not knowing anything about the place, we managed to find the best beach as soon as we arrived! The man who ran our first hotel there advised a different beach, but ours was better. It was large, and mostly empty, and right behind us was an amazing beach bar – playing a Lost Frequencies song which was the only one I recognised the entire time we were there.

And the people at the bar were fab too! After some conversational difficulty I managed to get myself a cocktail (or as they called it Vodka Redbull, though there was many more ingredients) – I didn’t know it as the time but a man was sent shopping for a bottle of Absolut just for me!

But I diverge…

Back to the beach it was clear and blue, we took out a pedalo once, and Theo had a shot on something which I can best describe as an inflatable bicycle… (and I can only describe his attempt as floundering).

This was also very close to the scene of my ‘animal attack’… Which I will come back to it a later post.

Have you ever been to Albania, or found a similarly perfect place on your travels? Let me know in the comments!


New Blog…

An explanation of what my new blog will be all about. Want to know more…?


And so it begins…

I’ve been thinking about starting a new blog for a while now…but I didn’t know what to say, or even what to say it about.

Everyone always says to choose something you’re passionate about (maybe that’s why I’ve never stuck to one of my previous attempts?), and that is what I’m going to do.

I love to travel! I love going new places and re-visiting old, be it 10 miles away or 10000.

So I’m going to document the rest of my final Uni year…and tell you a bit about my past travels, as well as the ones still to come this year. Oktoberfest this weekend! I will have lots of photos to share!

And come next summer… I’m going to take you on a life-long journey with me!
