Hi, Welcome to my Blog!
My name’s Sara and I’m a Yorkshire based, thirty-something blogger on a mission to see the world – but more importantly to see it differently.
Upon my return to the UK in 2018, I decided to create a blog as a means to document my adventures and share with you stories and photos from my travels.
So a little about me.
I can’t recall a time when travel wasn’t a part of my life. As a child me and my family were always on the go and by the age of 16 (having moved house 14 times) I had mastered the art of fitting my life into a 25 litre rucksack.
Being as indecisive as I am, I was never drawn to a 3 year stint at university, instead I graduated college four times studying Humanities, Travel and Tourism, Aviation Operations and Foreign Languages.
My travels have taken me worldwide from volunteering at a Ukranian Language school, roadtripping North America and solo travelling my way through over 30 countries within Europe.
In 2015 I moved to San Francisco, CA and trained as a Merchant Mariner, where after completion I was based in Hawaii and the Pacific working the Officer mess on-board A luxury cruise ship.
My final final year in the US was spent visiting a number of states and aswel as gaining a few lbs. Eventually I missed life back home and booked a one way ticket back to the UK.
For training and work I’ve dabbled within both the Travel and Aviation industry as short haul Cabin Crew and a Pre-travel service advisor.
Now I dream of being yelled at as a hostel receptionist whilst also being a Content Travel Blogger for the same company.
I wanted my blog to combine my love of all things Europen, budget and travel related, soon enough ‘Girl About Europe’ was born.
The aim of my blog to be more than just a place to look up ‘how to guides’ and recommendations – but a place to share with you honest travel experiences whilst interacting on a real level.
On my blog you will find posts about the ups and downs of being a part time backpacker, how to actually travel on the cheap and how to adapt a minimalist lifestyle.
I aim to inspire by any means personally, whether it’s recommending my favourite books or cheering you on as you finally snatch that bargain plane ticket.
But most importantly support and connect with you as fellow bloggers and readers.
Lastly I hope you decide to stick around and follow along on this adventure with me. I’d love to get to know you.
