A bit about me

 

Hi, I’m Julia, but you can call me Joules, I’m 24 and live in Kent, England and I’m about to live out of Livinga backpack for a year.

After three years at University and 2 years sat behind a desk in the real world I’ve decided its time to take off and see what this great big world has to say.
All I’ve ever wanted to do was travel the world, interact with other cultures and explore unspoken lands!! Well the time has come!! I called it quits on normal and decided a round the world ticket was my next big step in life.

There’s always many reasons to travel and everyone will have a different one! I want to transform the way I see the world, get rid of any preconceptions and simply learn by experiencing different cultures and ways of life.

One day I predict I will be on some old rickety chicken bus, eyes closed praying to whoever will listen, to spare my life and take the chickens before me. But then one day, oh one day, I can guarantee you, you will find me on a blissful Fijian beach with a Pina Colada in one hand and not a care in the world in the other.. it doesn’t sound all bad does it.. why don’t you join me?

Please enjoy and comment wherever you feel necessary 🙂

See you on the other side

“I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and your going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalisation looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people, Americans and Europeans, come back and go, “ohhhhhh.” And the light bulb goes on.”
