*Not another quote*
Well lads, what's the craic? So I'm going on an adventure (runs like Bilbo Baggins). I've always seen Instagram as a public photo album as such, so I've decided I'm gonna treat it as a travel diary. I can feel the judgy eyes rolling already.
So I'm off in T-18 days to the land down under 🌏 with a one way ticket and a bag full of clothes. The plan is simply to travel, go where I want, do what I want and make some memories and friends along the way. All on my ownio. #solofemaletraveler .
I've never left the country solo, never mind travel half a world away (sorry mam I'll be grand). So the emotions are building, that feeling of nervousness/excitement is my general everyday feeling lately. And even making little decisions like which travel insurance to chose is a major life crisis. I'm dreading the seeyalaters but cannot wait to be sitting in the clouds.
A year ago if you had of told me I would quit my job, book a one way ticket and go alone I would of laughed my fluffy socks off at you. But here I am, putting my fluffy socks in a black bag for the attic and printing my Visa 🤸
I could last 3 weeks want my mammy and come home, and there is nothing wrong with that. What would be wrong is if I didn't attempt to travel. If I didn't follow my gut and try new things and get out of my comfort zone. 🙏
So for now and probably the next 18 days I'm going to spend my time stressing over what to pack, when I'm going to get to eat dairy milk again and get my Irish ducks in a row before I leave them for a bit ✈️. .
Open House Dublin is on this weekend, and we of course went on a tour of Ordnance Survey Ireland. It’s the first time they’ve opened their doors like this, and I sincerely hope they have people in more often. Their archives are magical ✨
Open House Dublin is on tomorrow too, so if you’re Dublin based you should see where’s open!
