Hi, I’m Aysha. I’m 28 and I spend most of my days dreaming of where I’m going to travel to next.

Why am I a wannbe backpacker? Because I’m stuck in the same rat race the majority of other people are in, wishing I was somewhere else. I don’t hate my job but, I certainly don’t love it either. Working in finance isn’t the career I’d of chosen for myself, I just kind of fell into it. I’m not even sure how I managed to do that seeing as I suck at maths, I struggle with even basic multiplication (thank God for calculators and excel). The reason I’m an ‘wannabe’ and not ‘real’ backpacker is because there are some ties at home I just can’t bring myself to break. Who knows, maybe one day things might change but, for now I shall remain a dreamer.

If you’re reading this then you probably read a lot of travel blogs about people who’ve quit their jobs and sold everything to travel long term. I too read all of those blogs green with envy but, in my blog I hope to show people that it’s still possible to see the world whilst holding down a ‘normal’ lifestyle.
