Who Am I?
I am an aspiring travel writer with an incurable case of wanderlust that is often accompanied by severely itchy feet. I am a Libra. I like coffee with too much sugar. I wish chocolate was part of my 5 a day. I am scared of spiders. I'm British. I tell people I'm allergic to shellfish but really I just don't like it. I frequently say the wrong thing. I'm awkward. I am an epic procrastinator. I love to sleep. My favourite food is pizza. I don't have a favourite colour. I don't read as much as I should. I have a love/hate relationship with my own company. I'm lazy. I'm immature. I hate flying. I tend to ramble...
Hi, I'm Laura and I want to see the world!!
I'm 28 years old and from a small town on the South Coast of England. I moved to Chichester in 2010 to earn my degree in English and Creative Writing and Media Studies from the University of Chichester.
After graduating in 2013 I spent the summer working at a camp in America. This is where the travel bug bit me (along with hundreds of mosquitos!) and I suddenly wanted to go everywhere and see everything.
I spent 4 weeks after camp road-tripping from the East to the West coast with a group of people I had never met - an achievement in itself for this shy little girl who once preferred getting off the bus 3 stops early just to avoid making small talk with the friendly stranger who found himself sat next to me!
After that I was hooked! I found that meeting new people was fun. I started daydreaming about visiting places that I had never even heard of before. I started googling flights I could never afford to places I longed to visit. I read travel blog after travel blog, immersed myself in Bill Bryson's humour, trawled through tourism sites in a bid to quench my thirst for knowledge about the world.
I have compiled a bucket list that resembles War and Peace and I can't wait to get started on it! I hope you will enjoy reading about my adventures as much as I will enjoy writing about them. If you have any questions, requests or just want to chat, feel free to get in touch - I would love to hear from you
