21 Facts About Me

Since the day this post goes up is hopefully* my 21st birthday, I thought I would take this as an opportunity to tell you a little bit more about me. When you're reading this I will be living my best life in Verona, Italy, so as I'm sure you've guessed I am writing this a little before. I'm not going to pretend to be excited about my birthday, ageing absolutely terrifies me. But it did give me an excuse to travel and explore Northern Italy, something which has been on my travel bucket list for a long time. So without any further rambling, prepare to learn all about the gal behind the blog.

*I never seem to schedule my posts properly so I hope this goes up on the right day.

1. I lived in a teeny tiny town in the West Coast of Scotland until I moved to St. Andrews.

2. I actually went to an all girls boarding school from the age of 14.

3. I don't have any pets, I did have a goldfish for 9 years when I was younger though.

4. Doing my nails is one of my favourite ways to relax.

5. I am a very messy person. But it's not like proper mess, it's organised...

6. I play netball and I absolutely love it.

7. I love food and eat a lot of it. But definitely savoury over sweet.

8. I call cola and fizzy drinks juice and all my friends shout at me for it.

9. During the holidays I work in the Tourism industry and it is so rewarding I love it.

10. Until my year abroad I absolutely hated speaking German and found it so difficult.

11. I have a slight fear of going to the hairdressers. I only go about once a year.

12. I have had the same soft toy since I was three years old and still have it in my bedroom every night.

13. I think my favourite city I have ever visited is Vienna. Or London.

14. Sometimes when I am home alone I like to sing through the soundtracks of my favourite musicals, even though I'm not the best singer. Favourites include Wicked and Les Mis (obviously!)

15. I am terrified of rollercoasters.

16. When I was 12 I was on the BBC children's programme Raven. (And my friends still call me by my warrior name.....)

17. I was a massive "Directioner" from the time the band were on X Factor till the time they went on "haitus". Only ever managed to see them once though on their first tour after the programme.

18. I have never been outside of Europe.

19. Pink is my favourite colour, but closely followed by yellow because it's so bright and cheerful.

20. I think my favourite number is the number 3. I have absolutely no reasons for this I just like it.

21. As well as speaking English and German I also studied French for 9 years till first year of university so have a pretty good grasp of that too.

So there we go! I hope that you liked this post and now feel like you know a little bit more about me! This photo was taken in Greenwich looking back out over the Thames to Canary Wharf. What. A. View. Hope you are all having a great day!
