High school teacher, traveller, immigrant – I could say ‘expat’ but, really, who are we kidding? – cake lover, terrible blogger.
Maybe I’m in one of those moods today, but I decided to change my ‘About’ page because it was full of the usual ‘If I can travel, you can too‘ cliches, which, frankly, annoy the hell out of me.
Mainly because it’s often untrue.
I’ll admit that I have been lucky to travel the way that I do. Yes, I overcame a mountain of debt before I started to roam the world – but I have one of the best passports in the world for travel, have a job that allows me to work anywhere I want, and have been, thus far, healthy enough to wander freely. I do not have any children to worry about or save for.
I would love to offer advice on how to travel on $5 a day, but in all honesty, I spend over $5 on cake most days.
I can’t give you advice on packing light because my luggage is full of cosmetics, heavy-duty support bras, and hair straighteners; there’s no string bikini or strappy sundresses in my bag. Mother Nature isn’t kind after 30, girls!
RunawayBrit is a document of my life since I left the UK in 2007. Where I’ve been, what I’ve done. I might get parts of it published into a coffee table book for when I’m too tired to travel anymore. I would be truly honoured if you want to come along and read some of my posts, but I honestly won’t be offended if you would rather read ‘The 10 Best Party Beaches Of All Time – Like, Ever‘ posts on a blog far more successful than mine 🙂
As I’m currently living in Mumbai, India I suspect my blog will now mainly be about India for a few years.
