I feel like international volunteering is something on every traveller’s radar. It’s often an affordable way to see new places, comes with a pre-made itinerary and you get a group of friends to share the experience with! In September I’m embarking on my 3rd trip volunteering abroad and have decided to share some of my top tips for having an amazing time…
I know it’s been a painfully long time since I’ve posted on here. I was really struggling to find things to write about, and it took me a while to realise that that’s because I don’t really find this blog very interesting. I started off wanting to be a ‘lifestyle blogger’ but the big flaw in that plan is that I don’t actually enjoy anything that lifestyle bloggers write about… Sure, I love reading lifestyle blogs, but being the voice behind one really wasn’t for me. It wasn’t until I returned from a month on the West Coast USA that I realised what I was really passionate about: Travel.
When I got home, and even whilst I was still out there, my mind was full of post ideas for the first time in months. I want to share all the information I wish I had at the start of this adventure, and share the details of all the adventures still to come. Obviously this blog will still contain some lifestyle-type content, but it won’t be the main focus.
I’m hoping to completely revamp this blog over the coming months (both content and appearance-wise) but have started with the baby step of my own domain name, yay!
Thanks for your patience whilst I got back to this, and I hope you look forward to seeing where this goes 🙂
