What I Did: Started a new blog!

I was trying to think of a way to start this blog off without sounding melodramatic, but it had me completely stumped, so I'm just going to come out and say it: N (the boyfriend) and I are jacking in our temp jobs and going round the world for six months. The families and friends have been told (thankfully they're all really excited and have basically said 'Go for it now while you're young and carefree!'), the travel books have been ordered, and every last penny is being squirreled away into the savings account. But I wanted somewhere where I could write about my experiences, and maybe hopefully offer something to other female travellers as well, as from the initial research I've done there doesn't seem to be an enormous amount of info out there that's girl-specific.

So, my new blog - Where Laura Went - is going to become my little outlet for all my travel posts and pictures. I'm going to start with a couple of brief intros by posting about forthcoming trips to Malta and Cornwall, as well as a couple of blogs about the practicalities of going round the world as a girl, from things like female-specific backpacks to how little you can really manage on clothes- and make-up-wise whilst still having a few dressy things and feeling like a girl.

I'm also in the process of setting up a new travel Twitter account to go with the blog - more to follow soon about that one - so will keep you posted on how that goes. Hopefully I'll see you over there soon!
