My Writing

Please click here for a portfolio of my best pieces.

As well as this blog, I also write pieces on Medium. I am teaching myself to code in Python; you can scrutinise my extraordinarily basic programs on my GitHub. And I also write some of the posts on PSilikeacidpops, a Tumblr blog about Harry Potter.

Travel Writing

Rather than just copying out the guidebook, my travel writing is about my thoughts and feelings about the experiences I have had.

I travelled around India alone for five months between 2014 and 2015 (click to read).
I went back to India in 2015 for two weeks with my friend Jess (click to read).
When I was made redundant in summer 2015, I used the money to go to Paraguay, Peru, and Bolivia for five weeks (click to read).
Most recently, last year I travelled around Java, Indonesia for two weeks.

Here are some of the famous places I have been…
