Something new to write about today- Well not really, I’m going to talk about the 24 year old me but that is something I rarely share.
Kinda….. If it’s not what I did on a trip or what I thought about it then its something which I feel the need to address at the time – say ‘ Going after your dreams for example.
This is going to be all about what happened in August and what’s to happen in the next few months. I’ll try to be as non sarcastic as possible – Although, I can’t promise anything.
So things started in July when an article of mine was published on ABNSave’s Blog. An original prose and photo project focussing on Amman, Jordan and all fun and must do things.
This was my first piece of published work and it was kind of a big deal. Is blogging a job yet? Can I work in a pair of pyjama bottoms?

Next came one of the best holidays ever. SWITZERLAND. Booked on a bit of a whim I decided to take a solo trip to go and climb some hills ( or half die climbing up a mountain- call it what you like!) I headed to Lauterbrunnen via Basel, both delightful and I would more than recommend both. Anyway, my trip ending up being not so solo because I met a friend called Stephen in dorm 5 of ‘Valley Hostel’ – I will actually be posting all about my Swiss adventures next week so stay tuned for that.
HERE are some photos for now!
Before I left for Switzerland, I had been in contact with TOPDECK, in the hope of writing an article for them. Again this article was about Jordan but all the exciting things the country has to offer side from Petra. I had actually been on the tour JORDAN ADVENTURE with them in June and wanted to share my thoughts on what the tour had to offer!
It was published on August 12th and you can read it HERE
Meanwhile… Whilst I was in Switzerland. A miracle happened! I won a photo competition with TOPDECK as part of their monthly #TOPDECKER prizes. Won all fair and square and completely unrelated to my article. I was so happy- Still am. I couldn’t believe that I had won, I was convinced that no one ever won!
