Trying to create a blogging site without sounding cheesy or sappy is really difficult but here I am! I thought it would be a good idea to start blogging as life is beginning to get kind of exciting.
So to introduce myself a bit: I’m Molly and I’m 21. I have just completed a degree at the University of Nottingham and my main interests include music and autism awareness. I’m kind of on a mission for accessibility everywhere and to make the world a better place (I’m sorry – I really wish I could have worded that in a less cheesy, cliche way). I really love ghibli films and I smile whenever I hear Frank Sinatra or The Beatles.
Following what I can only describe as the most difficult and horrendous couple of months of my life, it’s time to move on and I have the world as my oyster. I have a degree and I have plans for the future. The main one is to see more of the world.
I haven’t seen much of the world at this point. I haven’t stepped outside of Europe. UK, ROI, France, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Croatia. That’s it. And I plan on seeing more but most probably on my own.
The idea of travelling alone seems quite scary but equally exciting. While I was in Dublin with some uni friends I was inspired by the people I met in the hostel who were travelling alone and I thought to myself “If I want to go somewhere I should just do it.”
So, where first? Well my first trip was going to be Seattle and San Francisco in September but I’ve been sitting at home with severe post-uni blues and before I knew it I had booked myself a mini trip to Copenhagen. First stop is Copenhagen and then who knows what I’ll squeeze in between now and the Seattle-SanFran-September-Sensation!
Anyway I’m probably not going to be one of these intense backpackers who sleeps in hammocks in the rainforest – believe me I would love to be that brave but I have a severe phobia of frogs – point is I hope to discover a lot and enjoy life for a bit without coursework and exams..!
