Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!*

I’m Sam and welcome to my travel blog.

Since I was a small child I have been endlessly curious about the world around me. Surrounded by books about far away kings and queens, pictures of flags and dolls in national dress from my Uncle’s exciting gap year I dreamed about travelling the globe.

And then…life happened.

I never did that pre or post university gap year, and at age 22 I fell hopelessly in love with Mr Sparrow and my wunderlust was pushed aside for wedding planning and house buying and settling down (and all the pennies and pounds that that requires).

But that curiosity never really went anywhere, and that sense of adventure has been bubbling away inside of me – so much so that here I am in my early thirties exploring the world one city break at a time.

So join me on my travel blog – I’ll take you from Krakow to Cuba and back again and show you pictures and tell you tales of those far away kings and queens – and everything in between.

  • Hey Sam! I just came across your blog from a Facebook group and wanted to say hi because I relate a lot to your story. I got married after college and we settled into the routines of life, but I haven’t been able to deny my desire to see more of the world (in my case, it’s mostly Latin America). I’m about your age and doing some part time exploring now, and it’s been fun. Anyway, it’s nice to connect!

    P.S…I’m going to out myself here, but is that a Pretty Little Liars reference? 🙂

  • Ah great about page – I feel so much of what you’ve written in myself.
    I love to travel, and never did a big pre or post uni trip, but did a few longer trips (3 wks, to 2months) whilst in uni. And now life… I own my own cafe business and house which of course limits any giant trips… but small trips, near or far, and the occasional two weeker are still ours for the taking right!
    Gorgeous blog and great to know someone else is also tackling there wandurlust like me one trip at a time!
