Life update – Travelling and future content

It has been almost an entire year since my last post so I feel that anyone who reads my blog deserves an explanation. Following the completion of my university degree I was for a while back at home with my family.

Soon afterwards I found myself in Thailand where a planned 1 month trip turned into a 7 month working holiday, having just recently returned I am looking to revive this blog.
