About

When I say Cheaper than Therapy I mean mental and physical therapy. Coming up with a name for a blog was really difficult – I looked at all the 'nomore9to5', 'travellingsolo', 'howtotravel' etc but they were all taken/unimaginative. Then I thought about why I wanted to go travelling in the first place. I wasn't happy with what I was doing, I felt stuck in a rut and didn't really know what was next. I felt like I was in a race but didn't really know what I was racing for. I'd been having physical therapy to sort out an issue with my hip (now I sound old!) and basically sitting down 12 hours a day was not helping it! So mentally and physically I didn't feel in a good place and knew I had to do something about it – hence Cheaper than Therapy! 

I think turning 30 this year made me have a 'quarter life crisis' – actually, I'm highly unlikely to make 120 but a 'third life crisis' doesn't really have the same ring to it – and I do hope it isn't a midlife crisis, as I'd quite like another one of those in 10 years time.

I'm lucky enough to have been able to travel a lot in my life time, and the last 5/6 years every time I'm away (usually with my flat mate) I say ' I really don't want to go home, I really want to go travelling again' – and this time I actually am! And I'm writing a blog 🙈 – something I never thought I'd do. Being dyslexic, writing is not something that is my forte and I avoid public writing as much a possible. So please be nice!!!!
