Welcome to my travel journal. Come share my random adventures!

This blog started around 10 years ago as a way of letting friends & family back home know what I was up to and that I was safe.

Over the years it's become much more than that. It's a record of my life. It's a valuable resource for people thinking about living & teaching in Japan. It's a place for me to document what my whole world revolves around: TRAVEL. My one mission in life is to go to 101 countries.

I feel like the whole world is literally on my doorstep. There is no way that I can stay in one place and not see it. People. Food. Culture. Nature. Villages. Towns. Cities. Transport. Life. Love. Fun! I wanna see as much as I can and share it with as many people as possible.

I love meeting people from around the world and I love to sit and listen to their stories and life experiences. We are all just stories in the end.

So what's my story?

I'm a 28 year old Brit called Lizzie. After graduating in 2008 I lived in rural Japan teaching English as part of the JET Program. I had the best two years of my life out there, but it was soon time to return to my roots.

From 2010-2013 I found love in Manchester, England and promptly lost it.

So I now reside in Nottingham but I don't like it much. I spend all my free time somewhere else!

I'm at a crossroads in life again. Trying to figure out my next move. Should I stay or should I go? I think we all know I'll move on's just a question of where to!

31 countries down, 70 to go!
