9 months, 3 continents, 1 backpack! Taking a career break in style
After spending five years fitting my long-haul travel dreams around my writing job, I decided that 2015 would be the the year I take on the world properly.
'Properly' for me meant dusting off my travel bucket list, throwing some darts at a map, and taking my pen on the road for nine months in order to finally experience the places I've always wanted to go, and to be surprised and challenged by those I never knew I did.
My trip is taking me from the highlands of Peru, through the salt flats of Bolivia and the beaches of Rio across to South East Asia, where Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Indonesia are on the itinerary, before I finally touch down in Australia.
Follow my blog if you've always dreamed of swapping your nine-to-five for exotic cultures and faraway beaches, and want to live the adventure alongside me - or maybe gain inspiration and ideas for your own career break.
