Welcome, fellow explorer!
As a start to my first post (ever), I’d like to start off introducing myself. First, the formalities: my name is Erika, I’m 25 (for now), live in South Africa and work as a mechanical engineer. I love spending time with family and friends, enjoy a good book or movie, cannot live without music and love the rain. I’m a cat person; cats, because they are low maintenance and arrogant and prefer to only spend time with you when they feel like it. I play guitar, paint and plan travels across the globe.
Which brings me to my next point: my passion for seeing the globe. I have always had the desire to get out there and see what the world offers. To see new places, meet new people, explore new cultures – food, clothes, languages, bad habits and more. One of my favourite pass-times is to plan trips to different countries, setting up itineraries and exploring new territories through the internet. In the past five years I’ve planned probably 10 perfectly worked out trips. The first one that realised was in December of 2015 when I went to Italy with a friend.
So, my plan for this blog is to share my travel plans. Planned itineraries that didn’t pan out, trip plans that became a reality and tales from my travels (I’m still building on this experience). I’ll also share tips and tricks that was given to me, or the few that I have picked up .
That being said, I’d love to hear your views or opinions. Please share your itineraries or plans (I promise to give credit), or feel free to request some itineraries which you’d like to be explored. Whether you are a traveller, tourist, enthusiast or a fellow blogger that accidentally stumbled upon this post, I’m hoping that you’d find something around here that you enjoy.
Mark Twain once said: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”
There is a big world out there – let’s get out and explore!
