I fell off the face of the Earth

Hello to anyone out there reading this.

I feel like I've been missing from life for a while and reading through my old posts ad comments made me laugh.

I joined Travellers point at the start of my twenties, very self concerned and with a dream to see as many places as possible.

I haven't been on Travllerspoint since 2005, in that time, so much has changed in me and I feel like I'm a very different person to the one I used to be and from reading my old posts and comments, it's probably for the better :D. One thing that's stayed contstant is my love to see new places.

In that time I've visted a couple more places, but not quite got the balls to go it alone and get up and go. At present, I'm just waiting to start Uni in September to start an Art and Design course (my other love) whilst staying in my job in customer relations for a travel company... suffice to say, I've heard enough gripes and seen the other side of travel to know just who to call and not to bother with when the sh*t hits the fan.

I'm in a bit of a strange place at the moment though now. I have no ties at 27, no house, no relationship, no bills to really pay at this point. I've saved up a little nest egg but I'm going to need everything I can keep my mits on to get through the next few years with fees and what not. But I have an itch to just have one last fling with the big wide world before I have to compromise... only I've no-one to even have a week away with. But I feel like why should the fun end because I'm alone??

I'm sure I'll figure it out... just thought I'd put something out into this space.

I hope that everyone is well.

Hi Tikilou, and welcome back!! 6 years isn't that long to have been away :)

Being alone is definitely not a reason not to make a break for it and go travelling. In fact, some of my best trips have been by myself. You learn a lot about yourself, both good and bad...

Thanks Sam I Am,

I guess in the grand scheme of things, 6 years isn't very long. Perhaps it just feels like a lot's happened in that time.

I think it'd be good for me to get out there on my own, gain some confidence. I'm not the type to just speak to anyone - well not first - if you say 'hi' to me, it's all I need to start talking. But there's always a first time for everything I guess.
