Hello all. I’m not quite sure what to write yet.
I want to travel and I want to write about travel, but I just don’t know how to start.
I suppose you may as well say this is an introductory post to myself and the blog.
I’m Emma, your host. I’m twenty-something, I work regular hours, have a degree in mathematics, a video game review blog, a desire to see the world and not enough money. Hmmm.
Well, I might as well tell you where I have been.
I was born and raised in Northern Ireland, home to the stunning Giant’s Causeway. It’s not somewhere I’ve been often, but it takes my breath away every time. I think this is a must if you visit Ireland – even if you’re in the South, make the effort to come to the North coast. You won’t regret it.
My mum is French, so I’ve visited France a lot. Most of her family come from near Nantes – we usually stayed in my Great Grandmother’s house, near a town called Blain.
However, my grandmother and mum’s brother live in Nice. The most beautiful part, to me, is not the beaches (although they are beautiful) but the ‘old town’ – Vieux Nice. I have always loved those parts of cities, as I feel they really give a city character. I am soon going to visit Stockholm and am really looking forward to visiting it’s ‘old quarter’.
Then I moved out of Northern Ireland, to go to University in Leeds. And here I am today. Yorkshire is a beautiful place, and I’m looking forward to having the chance to see more of it.
I will probably continue to tell you about my hopes and dreams as well as where I have travelled. Stay tuned.
