Hey friends! So nice to have you here with us!
As you may have read from our About page, I created Go Travel and Talk as a means to connect people, places and organisations from all over the world, to help each other explore outside of our comfort zones and make a positive impact when we do!
I currently live in England, but I have grown up all over the world. I went to the University of Manchester, graduating with a MSc in Psychology, before moving down to London to start my career. But as it turns out, the corporate world wasn't for me, and after 8 long years of living and working the 9-5 grind, I now freelance in Social Media and focus my attention on growing Go Travel and Talk!
I am a massive believer that travelling is the best education you can give yourself. I have learnt more on the road than I have ever done sat in a classroom. I have learnt about cultures, traditions, history, politics, languages; but I have also learnt how to build relationships with people from all walks of life, how to be comfortable in my own company, how to problem solve and the importance of making a POSITIVE IMPACT through volunteering opportunities and following sustainability principles.
But for some people, especially first time solo travellers, the idea of travelling on their own is so terrifying that fear often trumps adventure, it did with me. I hope Go Travel and Talk can be a source of inspiration and empowerment, to support one another to get out there and Explore, Share and Impact.
