October


After spending a month in beautiful Greece, I'm finally back in the UK ready to begin saving for my next adventure.

I stayed in Athens for the majority of my trip, using it as a base to explore other parts such as Delphi and Corinth. I also booked myself onto a food tour to eat as much Greek food as possible
 see what Greek culture is truly like. I learnt even more than I thought I would! One of the highlights of my stay was the pre-BEX tour to Aegina, my favourite day out by far. I spent most of the day sat on the edge of a boat, sea breeze in my hair and the sun on my face as we slowly approached the small island surrounded by a kaleidoscope of blues. 


Later on in the month I was joined by some friends for the beginning of TBEX, a travel blogging conference that was luckily being held in Athens this year.  As my first major blogging event I wasn't too sure what to expect. I was blown away by how much preparation must have gone into making TBEX happen. I really enjoyed myself. I got to meet bloggers from all over the world, learn some new things and be inspired.


I made it back to London just in time for the Halloween parties. Fancy dress is one of my all time favourite things, I absolutely LOVE getting creative with it. This year I had two costumes, my first was a quick vampire job that was pretty easy to put together.


 The second I had been planning for weeks, I was so excited to finally pull it all together and become Maleficent for the night.


I also took a step into the vlogging world again for Vlogtober, documenting what I got up to for most of my time in Athens. Check out my channel here if you want to see them and subscribe for more!

What's Happening Next Month...

As I was made redundant before I went to Athens, I now need to focus my time on finding a job. I'm hoping it won't take too long so that I can begin planning for my next trip as soon as possible. I'll also be attending World Travel Market at the beginning of the month, another large event that I'm looking forward to. Other than that, I hope to maybe see a bit more of the UK as I'm always so eager to explore countries other than my own. I should probably start closer to home first.

Have a great November!


What did you dress up as for Halloween?
