MY FIRST (OFFICIAL) BLOG POST
By the time you are reading this I will be a month away from one of my craziest trips to date, of which I can’t even say the destination – not until I get there! Either that or you are reading this 2 years down the line where I have safely made it home.
IT WAS MEANT TO TAKE 6 MONTHS, IT TOOK 36!
Anyway, it’s finally here, 3 years in the making. Every week night, every sober weekend and every second of lockdown slaving over what you are looking at right now, so from the bottom of my heart thank you for taking the time to have a look, it means a lot. I’ll be honest I have enjoyed it but after working for a solid 3 years (along with my full-time job) and until now having nothing to show for it, it’s a huge weight off my shoulders!
IT NEEDED TO BE RIGHT
Anyone who knows me knows that when I do something, I need it to be as close to perfection and the blog was no different. It started off as a project that I was hoping would only take a few months but the design, the backlog of information, the content and the marketing made it snowball to where we are now. I will say one thing about the Coronavirus lockdown. Without it I probably wouldn’t have found the time to finish it. It gave me 12 weeks of free days to work solely on the blog. Every day I would start at 10am and then crawl back to bed at 2 the following morning, completely exhausted of every creative cell in my brain.
DAILY TRAVEL DIARY
The blog is in essence and daily travel diary where I write a post every day I am on the road and upload it weekly. I’m no Willy Shakespeare but travelling the way I do tends to bring about a lot of weird and inexplicable moments so I have no doubt there is something here for everyone. Or at the very least it inspires you to chase your own travel ambitions that you’ve been dreaming of. Asking yourself, “why didn’t I do this sooner” will be expected!
In this blog I write about first hand experiences and travel as I see it. Travel isn’t all inflatable unicorns and swinging over a rice fields although it’s always worth a photo! Let’s get interesting, lets show both sides of travelling, the real side that social media doesn’t but without missing on any of the good stuff either.
It includes everything from stories of seeing my friend almost getting killed in Austin, getting held at gunpoint and getting interrogated by the Algerian Police, but there are also plenty of positive stories!! Such as doing the world’s highest bungee, diving with sharks and getting drunk with the Masabi Tribe in the Drakensberg Mountains in Africa.
So that’s it for this week, keep an eye out for my next post on one of the most dangerous countries in the world. In the meantime, have a look around, if you’ve met me on the road then there’s a high chance you feature!
SAFE TRAVELS, DS x
