This vulva. It makes me smile. It looks a bit like a potato but in the loveliest way. It was this image I chose to share my story. 

The bright green fields on the train up to see my family. 

All my family, on the boat. 

Being in beautiful Toulouse, all on my own.

The gorgeous AirBnB I’m staying in.

Packing up the van in the evening, with that fading light that reminds me of packing cars up for holidays. I can’t believe we’re going to live in it.
The Mindy Project. I need to start watching this properly.


A really fun and fast day at work with lots to do and no tired feet.
The F Word. A show at Bats Theatre about sexism that was Ah.Maze.Ing. Funny and clever and just brilliant. I’m still buzzing from it.
Roughly planning our trip around New Zealand in January. It suddenly feels a lot more real and exciting. Plus I’m feeling less worried about the money side of it all.

Booking trains and ferries to start our big trip! It’s official. We’ve booked and paid for transport to start us on our overland trip from here to New Zealand. It’s happening!

Speaking to people in the evening about New Zealand and how much they loved it. Which got me really excited again.

Planning and researching our trip. Well, the first bit across Europe and the Trans Mongolian route.
