If you have found my page, it is likely because you are a wonderful friend or family member and you have come here because I told you to! Ever since I moved to the UK in April of 2017, I promised myself I would (one day) blog about all of the wonderful (and perhaps some less wonderful) experiences I was about to have. Fast forward to January 2020 and I have yet to start a blog – until now that is.
- New decade new me. Hello 2020 and to my 30s.
- To stay connected. More of my friends and family are going ‘sans’ social media and I want a way to stay connected with them and with those who I do not get to see as often as I would like.
- To share stories. I want to share more about my experiences than just my photos and in a space where I can interact with friends and family and not have it broadcasted on social media.
- To be creative. I want to do something productive in my spare time. I’ve enjoyed blogging at work and think it would be a lot more fun to blog about my personal life!
Two thing that I love to do are organise plans and bring people from different parts of my life together (I know, a nightmare for some). Living in the UK has given me many opportunities to bring both friend and strangers (aka likeminded expats) together through common interests. For a lack of creativity or originality – I have decided to call this blog “the glue that holds us together“.
You can expect to hear about:
- Travels. From small villages in the UK to Iceland to Marrakech, I want to share and document the memories of experiences I have had.
- Hiking adventures. Since moving to London, I created a hiking/walking group (Almost 2000 and growing!) and have met many expats from all over the world. Roughly once a month we set out to explore somewhere outdoors in and around London.
- Ever-changing interests. Whatever subject or thing has recently caught my attention – sensory yoga, minimalism or training for 1/2 marathons!
- Connection. I would love to connect with my friends and family. Everyone else is a bonus!
If I blog successfully over the course of this year, I hope to improve my writing skills and hear from many of you through my comments.
