About Charlotte

World Traveller (before I quit my job I was an IT Project Manager)
Bournemouth, England
French, Turkish and of course my native tongue English
Favourite quote
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain.
Interests and hobbies
Reading, Iyenga hatha yoga, drink tasting nights, visiting new places
One thing I want to do before I die
Enjoy my life to the full
My friends describe me as
The most amazing moment in my life so far
Living in the moment right now. I quit my job to travel round the world in 2012 and have tried to not go back to conventional life since. Retirement isn't for when your old and can't walk, it's for now. Drink hard, life is cocktails!
I'm a solo female traveller, I love to choose places off the beaten path where people just don't go for a beach holiday but culture and adventure, often backpacking. Think Venezuela, Colombia and Israel. I've also lived and worked abroad in Morzine - France, Istanbul - Turkey, Paris - France and Milan - Italy. 

After blogging on since it's inception (more than 10 years ago!), I have now setup my own Creative Writing website, where I combine lust of travel and writing together. Please go and check that out too and always I love when people write feedback and comments, else why do I share my experiences.
