About @Nicola_C

37 years old • Female

I grew up in a small town in the beautiful county of Dorset before moving to the city of Bristol - But now I have finally decided to leave my comfortable but monotonous life behind me and head out into the big wide world. Alone!

I love to travel, but I've never been on a long term trip before, so I'm excited to get started, and admittedly a little nervous. I have quit my job, sold my car and packed my life into boxes to go and experience something new and exciting.

I'll be travelling overland on the Trans-Siberian / Trans-Mongolian Railway, from St Petersburg to Beijing to start my new life in China. I'm currently training as a teacher of English as a foreign language and plan spend a year working as a kindergarten teacher somewhere in China. The rest of the details have yet to be decided upon.

I hope you enjoy my stories and photographs presented in my blog - the adventure begins.

  • Hobbies:

    Travelling. Exploring. Good conversation. Learning. Nature. Animals and wildlife. Reading. Good food. Adventure.

  • Favourite places:

    So far... Barcelona, Rome, Beijing.
