About Me…

Ok… So here it goes.

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a very long time. Mostly for myself and for no other reason. Writing has always helped me remember, but it also scares me. I don’t know if I want people to read about my experiences. I’ve always feared public scrutiny – “What if ‘they’ think I’m pretentious writing this blog?? Oh the judgement!!” (insert ‘screamer’ emoticon here). But what the hell. I’m going to give this a shot. If nobody reads the stuff I write, I can keep this blog as a memoir for myself. If someone does read this blog… waheyyyy I’m famous! (insert cool looking smiley here – I’m really missing my emoticons right now!)

Anyway… About Me…

I am 29 years old… soon to be 30. My name is Samantha. I am a Physiotherapist by profession. I live on a little, tiny island in the Mediterranean Sea – Malta. I love my home. Malta is a magical little island full of sunshine, goooooooood food, amazing history and architecture, gorgeous beaches, and basically the friendliest, funniest and noisiest people on the planet. It is also infuriating – it’s small (understatement), heavily and densely overcrowded (understatement) and traffic packed (understatement). So, as most ‘Maltesers’ would wholeheartedly say; every once in a while you just need to take a break and escape the island in search of something new and exciting… (THANK YOU RYANAIR – and other moderately priced airlines hihiii!!!)

I have a few hobbies – namely travelling (funds and vacation leave permitting), taking photos, eating (especially when travelling ), reading and furniture “revamping”…

Travelling has been a passion of mine for a very long time – my parents gave me the bug when I was young, and since the age of 16 I have been trying my best to travel as much as possible with whatever resources I have. I have been to quite a few places around Europe, including cities in Italy, Spain, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, Poland, Sweden, Finland and Norway etc…

I have also had limited travel experiences in the US and Canada, as well as a trip to the United Arab Emirates and most recently, Thailand. I hope to continue my travels outside of Europe as I’ve always had a particular fascination with Asia, Africa and the Middle East. So now I’ve decided I want to document my adventures, if not for anyone else to read, just for myself – to remember… Every travel experience I have had has been just that, an experience – so share I will! Good or bad, each experience has taught be something about myself, and that in itself is a good enough reason to write every bit of it down. Where writing fails me, my photos will take over. Every photo featured in this blog has been taken by me. So hopefully, sharing some snapshots of my wanderings will also help fill in some gaps :).

So here it goes! Let the sharing begin!
