More about wayfarover

I started wayfarover to tell the stories from my travels that would have otherwise stayed in the super-secret pages of my travel journals. If there is one thing I love more than travelling, it is storytelling. So, while I do write an occasional guide, this blog is all about travel narratives: thoughts on ethical backpacking, self-discovery, doomed holiday romances (and boy, do I have those!), places that forever left an impression on me.

I make mistakes but it’s OK, because I write about them for you to chuckle at and maybe you will learn from them as I do. I tell the stories of encounters with people who changed my life, or at least tucked on my heart strings for a fleeting moment; the stories of moments when I was scared and angry and lonely; the stories of experiences that have not been photographed but have been neatly folded and tucked into that special part of my brain where patronums can be summoned from.

I want to entertain you with my mishaps, get you to consider the way you see this world, and maybe even teach you a thing or two. If you have something to say, please leave a comment! I love comments. Comments are the internet equivalent of gold stars in your homework.
