The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter — Izaak Walton.

My name is Becca Arlington and in September 2018, at the age of 24, I quit my job to go travelling for six months.

I had always wanted to travel the world and, although I had initial fears about being a solo female traveller, I knew this would be an experience of a lifetime.

I was excited to see varying landscapes; encounter wild animals in their natural habitats; meet people of many other cultures, from various walks of life; and open my eyes to all the beauty, and unfortunately destruction, that this world has to offer. Cliché as it sounds, perhaps I would even find myself on a path of self-discovery.

The beautiful Lake Malawi (more info will be revealed in an upcoming blog post)

So after months of planning, thirteen jabs, countless flights booked, bags on all sides to balance me out and many a visa later, I was finally ready to say my teary goodbyes to family and friends and set off on my own.

Along the way, I have been writing numerous notes (as my fellow travellers can vouch for!) taking 360° photos galore, and snapping a mere 16,000 pictures on my camera and phone combined.

Coming up in the next blog posts there’ll be breathtaking safaris, at least a million sunset pics, an abundance of culture, plenty of disasters, small triumphs, activities I won’t forget in a hurry, new friendships across the globe, beautiful sunshine, the occasional downpour and much, much more!

So I hope you enjoy reading my ramblings and seeing my snaps as I take you with me on my travels through Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, India, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
