23 Things I Want To Do Now I Am 23


It's my Birthday Today!! The past year has gone so quickly, my 22nd birthday wasn’t a good one to remember. I wish certain circumstances and situations were different and I wish I accomplished a lot more than I did. I had some great successes including graduating with a 2.1 (thought I would get less) and getting an amazing new job alongside travelling more. However, there were so many things out of my control and I am taking that back.

Now I am out of university, with no assignments and no drama holding me back I actually want to be selfish and tick off as many things as humanly possible on this list. Some things aren’t travel related because travel is only one part of my life, let’s see in a year if I did all these things!

Travel Book Review: The Four Hour Work Week


As a Travel Blogger, I have seen so many courses and trends regarding “How to Become a Full-Time Blogger” and “How to Get Rich Doing Blogging”. I have somehow avoided paying for a course that may or may not help me with succeeding in blogging. However, I realised that I was intrigued in those courses because I was obsessed with increasing my statistics or earning more money (I am a workaholic).

I heard about The 4-Hour Work Week though the blogging community, and there was something about this that I was thinking about for a while. The thought of a 9-5 job stuck in the office, wasn’t something that I was interested in. I don’t know if I want to be freelance but I love the thought of working abroad. I always thought that you can create your lifestyle even if you do work for someone else, and wanted more advice on managing my time and my blog. Here is what I thought.

Being Single on Valentine’s Day: In England vs. In Spain



It is January as I am writing this, and I spend so much time in town before work and there are numerous pink displays in card shops advertising the day of love. Valentine’s Day. The day that we buy presents, cards for our other half or take them out for a nice romantic dinner by candlelight. I have always been single on this day – the violins are playing – I am just kidding because this was by choice. I decided not to be so obsessed with getting a boyfriend when I was younger and I am thankful for it because now I feel way more ready.

So Valentine’s Day for me when I was younger was sending cards to my grandparents, did anyone else do this? So what is the point of this post? I decided to be a bit different to the “gift guides for Valentine’s Day” or “Romantic Weekends Away for Valentine’s Day” because I am a fraud. However, let’s embrace being single on this day for lovers. Hint, hint – move to Spain if you want to feel less bombarded with commercial marketing!

Broke? Budget For Travel Using These Easy Ideas | Travel Tips

It’s easy to think that travel is going to be expensive. In some cases, it is. However, you really don’t believe that you need to have a ton of money, or come from a wealthy family to be able to travel. In fact, it can be the exact opposite. You can actually travel the world, or go on several trips a year, by just being smart with your money. And there are several ways in which you can do this. Sure, right now, you feel broke. That you’ve only got enough money to pay for the essentials - and nothing spare for travel. But we’re about to change all of that. If you’re desperate to welcome travel into your life but you’re worried that money is holding you back, these five ideas will help you.
 
I feel like I should be a poster girl for budget travel, all my friends kept asking how I could afford to travel as a student - it wasn't something I had saved up for I just found the right offers and excursions. Also, I remember during my Erasmus year abroad a lot of the activities (mainly nights out and dinners) were free so it was great for a gal on a budget. I remember my dad saying to me "Molly, your photos and stories sounds like a millionaire lifestyle on a lemonade budget" … so true and I loved it!

Meet the Bloggers Series: Couple Travel Bloggers



It’s almost Valentines Day, that time of year when one day we celebrate love. Whether it is when you are younger giving a letter to your school crush, bestie or grandparents to treating your other half to a spa weekend --- the 14th of February is a staple date for us all. We can’t escape it! I am single, so obviously I won’t be doing a gift guide or best places to travel for couples, because I have NO IDEA. However, I don’t’ want to brush past the face it is Valentines Day instead I am doing something different.

I have a Meet the Bloggers Series, a place where I get to share all my favourite bloggers and those that have inspired me. In respect of Valentines Day coming up, it is the perfect time to introduce my favourite Couple Travel Bloggers. I used to think that travelling was meant to be done solo, however I have seen so many couples travel the world together and it looks like one epic adventure!

Blog Update: New Logo and Further Plans



Can’t believe I finally updated something on my blog, I didn’t intend to spend that much money on my blog. I created a nice website on blogger.com, a free site and bought a domain and created a free template on Canva. I loved it and still loved where I started, I don’t do blogging as a way to make money nor do I do get competitive with myself over blog statistics. However recently, I have noticed a change to my mindset.

I really want to invest in my blog, it has become a massive part of who I am and where I want to be. It has become a platform for me to be creative, meet an amazing community and work with amazing brands – it also helps me talk about my passion in job interviews. I don’t know if I would do blogging full-time because I love having a job alongside it. My big reveal will make you understand how they will fit in together. Seeing recently how my blog has grown and reaching more people, I wanted to put money into my blog to show it’s growth and it’s identity.
