6 facts about me!

Things to do in pokhara

Hello fellow budget hunters

Today marks yet another day snowed in! Hopefully it will thaw soon enough, so instead of exciting blog posts… I am going to share 6 facts about myself to you all! Some of these you may already know, especially if you know me in person!

1. I grew up in Herefordshire, which is a very rural county on the border of Wales. It is famous for cider and cows, as a child it was great fun but when I became a teenager I longed for more exciting things to do! (There was 1 screen in the cinema at that point!) However, now as soon as I see the rolling hills and black and white buildings, I know I’m home again!


2. ‎Before 2014 I had only flown once, to Spain when I was 5 and ever since I still find it the most exciting part of the journey!
3. ‎In 2016, I joined a society at university and tried my hand at coxing. I became the loud shouty person at the back of a rowing boat, which I love even though I’m struggling with finding the time in my final uni year!


4. ‎I am hypermobile, or double joined as it used to be known! My elbows bend backwards and my knees extend past straight, this was something that wasn’t ever diagnosed until I dislocated my shoulder in Tanzania. Many doctors noticed but never explained it and why I dislocate things all the time! It ended up explaining my sister and mum’s other joint issues so we finally all know!

5. ‎I have an obsession with foreign supermarkets, thankfully so does my boyfriend… We love to compare the items available and the prices. Apparently this is weird, but I just love to see the differences and regional foods!


6. ‎I was trained in ballet from the age of 4 to about 11, until we moved to pointe shoes, which I didn’t want to do. I wasn’t very graceful, nobody believes I was ever a ballet dancer but it did give me weak ankles for life!

I hope you liked this post, it was really good fun to write!
Until next time

  1. I love foreign supermarkets as well! I always try to go in one whenever I am in a different country or even around the U.S. just to see if they carry some of the items I already love from all over the world and yes to compare prices! It was nice reading about you!

  2. My great-grandmother came to the United States from Wales, so I have always had an idyllic concept of Wales. And there is nothing wrong of weird about comparing supermarket prices.

  3. Loved reading your travel journey girl!! I could connect with it considering that I too come from a small town in India and had the dreams to explore the world. keep exploring new places and keep writing about them.

  4. You really get a great window into the culture of a place by going to the supermarket and seeing what’s available there! Though admittedly it can also be super confusing…. 😉

  5. A lovely post, and nice to know something about you. I like foreign supermarkets too, they’re so interesting!
