An eclectic mix of the weird stuff I’m in the mood to write about, this blog is a notice board for my ramblings and musings. Whether it’s travel, lifestyle, nutrition, poetry or personal posts, you can explore by clicking one of the category’s above the Venetian rooftops or check out my most recent posts on the left. Happy reading!
Studying Biomedical Sciences has taught me to analyse, evaluate and criticise. Got an idea? Where’s your evidence? My interest in health and science and people has driven this career choice which has gifted me many useful skills. I think, however, I’m a bit of a softy at heart with a lot of feelings, and therefore need to cathart, often, most likely in the form of poetry or a rant. My old stuff tends to be a bit more “here’s the latest health trend I’ve come across”, and my new stuff tends to be “I’ve made my feelings rhyme, look!”.
A bit about me..
I was born in Kuwait, lived in Bahrain until I was 8, then moved to the Isle Of Wight in England. Then moved back to Bahrain when I was 13, then moved back to the Isle of Wight when I was 15. As you can imagine, a back and forth life was hard but taught me an invaluable amount about people and culture. I finished school with an insatiable appetite for travel and knowledge, so at 18 moved to Tunisia for 4 months working as an activity’s rep coordinating kids club sessions and poolside/beach activities at a Holiday Village. I then moved over to Australia with a working holiday visa, and spent the year partly working around Sydney and WA, and traveled my way up both the East and West coasts. Following Aus, I backpacked around Asia for 6 months having a whale of a time. Would recommend to everyone on the traveling fence (read some of my blog posts under travel, hopefully they will push you over the edge… into Asia or somewhere). Then I started Uni September 2015. I spent a couple of months in Europe in Easter and Summer 2016 and I loved getting to know my European neighbors a little better. I spent a year in Ecuador working at the Timburi Cocha Research Station in the Amazon Rainforest, completing a research project. Finishing the last year of my degree has felt like a breeze compared to second year. Moving to Spain this summer to learn Espanol, and very excited about it.
Recently embraced BODY POSITIVITY and have not looked back since. I urge you to LOVE YOURSELF and YOUR BODIES, because they are all fabulous. If in doubt, read or listen to Body Positive Power, it changed my life.
Any other questions you have about me, feel free to ask at the bottom.
Oh, and my favourite colour is green.
