Earlier this year I wrote about how I am trying to stay in shape while traveling. There’s nothing like shopping for some new running shoes or clothing to give you a bit of an incentive to start exercising! Recently I was asked to review this Nike Women’s Dri-Fit Knit Short Sleeve Tee, which is made [...]
After watching a video of Nomadic Matt eating the hottest pepper in the world at Tears of Joy in Austin Texas, I decided I would be up for the challenge too. Matt’s reaction was priceless and it made a great video, so I stopped by this hot source shop on E. 6th Street recently to put my [...]
The Dead Sea is salt lake bordering Jordan to the East and Israel to the West. At 400m below sea level it’s the lowest place on Earth, and definitely an experience for your bucket list. Floating in the Dead Sea Israel The Dead Sea is 33.7% salt, making it one of the saltiest bodies of [...]

On the blog trip to Florida with Virgin Holidays and Visit Florida we visited the NASA Kennedy Space Center. This is a video of our “KSC Up-Close” Tour.

Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
