I have returned.


Playing with perspective in the salt flats. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia.

Having spent six months exploring twelve countries across two continents, taking hundreds of buses and dozens of planes and of course using my own feet to walk an indeterminable number of miles, I’m finally home. It feels strange to be back – but a good strange, I think.

Travelling exhausted me. It broke me, it humbled me, it pained me. It was the best thing I have ever done. I’ve met amazing people, seen beautiful places, and lived out some amazing experiences. If you get the chance to get away, to explore the world, even if it’s just for a month at a time, do it.

Did I get any inspiration? Hell yes. Did I write? Nowhere near as much as I would have liked to. But yes, a little, and I hope to share the results soon.

I trust 2017 is now firmly in the back of your minds, and I hope 2018 treats you right.

  1. I’m going to go backpacking for 14 weeks starting this December around South East Asia and I can’t wait! I’m so nervous as I would be going solo but yes I’m ready for the experience!

    • Amazing Poppy, I haven’t made it as far as SE Asia yet – it’s definitely on the list! Have an incredible time.

  2. Welcome back, Nicholas. Yes, travelling’s a blast, isn’t it? Looking forward to the stories!

    • It certainly was! Wasn’t all fun and games of course, but I’ve been so lucky to have experienced it. Hope you are well Curtis.
