A Day of Touring the Living and the Dead: New Orleans Part Two

Here’s a shocker for my fellow British people – did you know it’s pronounced New Or-linz? Apparently, it’s only British people and those who are wrong who pronounce it New Or-leans! (No idea why us British get lenience here but I won’t complain!) On our second day in New Orleans, we headed back to the… Continue reading A Day of Touring the Living and the Dead: New Orleans Part Two

Saying Goodbye To Camp

Eleven months ago, I started my annual application to Americamp with the assumption I would probably once again not submit. For five years I’ve been dreaming of working on a summer camp with kids in America, yet every year I’ve been too scared to actually press the submission button. This year, however, something was different;… Continue reading Saying Goodbye To Camp

“Find Your Happy” | Where Have I Been?

The sun beat down on my already tanned skin as I wandered around the deserted dirt roads. Dust kicked up into clouds around my feet as I floated past farms and factories, my headphones masking the distant hum of electricity from packing machines. I constantly flicked between two playlists on Spotify; my Writers playlist and… Continue reading “Find Your Happy” | Where Have I Been?

Apparently I Drink Coffee Now?

As my time at camp rolled around to an end, I feel as though I can finally say I feel like a real writer. No, not because I've been writing a lot here (cause...I totally have...I swear) but because I'm finally drinking coffee. I've always been super anti-coffee. I hate the smell and the taste,… Continue reading Apparently I Drink Coffee Now?

2 Weeks To Go! | My One-Way Adventure!

The panic set in yesterday. "So much to do, so little time" is a phrase that suddenly became a reality for me. Don't get me wrong, I think I can do it, it's just a lot to process that I'm about to go away and not know when I'm coming back. I was saying to… Continue reading 2 Weeks To Go! | My One-Way Adventure!

3 Weeks To Go! |My One-Way Adventure!

It still doesn't feel real. Despite having my visa's sorted, my luggage bought, my packing list written and slowly starting to take place, it still doesn't feel like I'm about to leave England. I suppose it was the same when I was going to Winchester for University; not till I was placing my boxes in… Continue reading 3 Weeks To Go! |My One-Way Adventure!
