I’m Felicity and this is my blog.
I’m a twenty-something trying to make my way in the world.
Balancing my career ambitions while satisfying my desire to travel and see everything so that when I’m old, I don’t look back and have regrets. Sometimes it’s hard to get the balance right but here goes.
I started this blog while studying but I was really hesitant at first. I didn’t have a theme so I struggled to find ideas and topics to write about, particularly ones that interested me and more importantly, that I thought would interest other people.
Since the course ended, I’ve periodically come back to this blog, longing to write something of relevance and interest, but always struggling for a consistent topic. I now realise this space will be a collection of pieces that map out various adventures and stages of my life, including travel posts, currents debates and the occasional opinion piece if I feel particularly strongly.
The summer of 2012 was a real turning point in my life. Since then I have tried to make my life everything I want it to be. Including making the most of every opportunity and trying to live in the moment.
I spent a few months living in Geneva and briefly visited Costa Rica before moving back to Wales and then travelling around Thailand, Vietnam, China and Japan.
During my time away, my eyes were opened to a whole range of issues and topics from around the globe that affect people in many ways – issues that I’d never even considered.
Fast forward six months and I found myself working and living in London – something I never expected. I stayed for 9 months and learnt to appreciate it but I never loved it – it’s not my place.
So I moved to New Zealand – just to try it but my intention was clear: progress my career whilst living abroad and then travel a little… Well. Things don’t always work out as you expect. At least I tried it – it’s something I’ll never regret.
So now I’m back in my hometown which is a little strange for me, but the adventure continues…
