Travelling: Expectations & Achievements
Before I quit my job, gave up my flat and left the country I had so many expectations of what this time away would entail. Choosing to essentially walk away from your life, particularly when you're settled with community and 'a place in the world' can be sc...

What right do I have?
I've been trying to write
this blog for quite a while now. I started it almost three weeks ago and aside

Put your hope in a hummingbird

post. Last week at work, I was asked to make a list of any VIPs
