10 Reasons NOT to go Travelling

British Passport and foreign money flatlay

While we know that everyone’s Instagram feed is just a highlight reel, there’s nothing to stop that pang of jealousy happening when you see another photo of a perfect beach scene, or another amazing sunset in some distant location that’s thousands of miles away from your dreary office.

Not many people like to reveal the not-so-nice parts of travelling. Mainly because who wants to remember being delayed in an airport for five hours or having their passport stolen? I, however, believe that there’s nothing better than a good moan and that sometimes shit things can happen even if you’re in the most beautiful of locations.

My Internet History

I was recently reminiscing about MSN Messenger with an old friend and we were talking about how funny it would be to be able to look back at all of our old chat logs. While I'm sure the majority of the conversations would just be full of boring exchanges such as 'wuu2', 'nothing, u?' and millions of emoticons, it would still be interesting to see what we talked about every day despite having just spent six solid hours together at school.

This then led me on a quest of trying to dig out all of my old profiles on various websites and social networks that I used to use back when we had dial-up and it took hours just to load a page.

Scrolling through my Twitter and Instagram feeds I’ll often see that little hashtag #ad or #sp sprinkled across the accounts of various bloggers or ‘influencers’ that I follow on social media. I have no issues with sponsored content in itself - I fully understand the power of influencer marketing and I’ve definitely bought a product just because I’ve seen a tweet/read a blog post about it or seen a great collab. Plus, bloggers have got bills to pay too.
