On October 23rd, I’m going to be catching a plane from Australia to Bali! I never thought I’d be heading to Bali this year but when the opportunity to go to the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival came up, I jumped at the chance.

The Festival, in its 15th year of running, is located in Ubud, a little way outside of Denpasar and calls itself ‘an annual pilgrimage for lovers of literature and conversation’.

To say I am excited is an understatement.

In December of 2017, I went to America with my bestie, Georgia! This trip was a year in the making and one of the coolest experiences of my life.

In September I went on my England/Europe gap year trip. This trip is something I’d been dreaming about for about four years. I knew undoubtedly that I wanted to go to England and visit my family and also go to Italy and France. In September of this year, I got to do just that! In my head, the trip was broken up into three parts. London, Family and Europe. View Full Post

I’m feeling super nostalgic and almost sad today and I wanted to talk about it.

I took a Gap year in 2015, and that’s what I want to talk about… Gap years.

A Gap year is defined as a year between graduating high school and beginning university/college typically spent travelling or working.

But 2015 was so much more than just time taken off school for me.
