WELCOME TO MY CULTURE CRAVING…
Hi! My name is Lydia, I’m 24 and I’m from the UK.
In July 2014, I started blogging as The Globe-Trotting Graduate. To keep my love affair with travel alive whilst I adjusted to post-student life and settling into the world of work, I shared my past and present travel experiences online. However, I recently decided that, to coincide with my one-way trip of a lifetime in December (check out my ‘What’s Next’ page for more info on this), it was about time that I hung up my gown and mortar board (*sigh*) and moved The Globe-Trotting Graduate onto bigger and better things…
Enter My Culture Craving…
Culture is the predominant reason why I am so obsessed with travel.
I crave a lot of things in life – an unhealthy amount of food, coffee and wine, a house full to the brim with Buddha statues, campervans and candles… a slender body like one of the Kardashian’s (a girl can dream)… but most of all, I crave travel.
I don’t however, crave just any travel; I crave the kind of travel where you are thrown into the deep end of a country’s culture, veer away from the hordes of tourists, get off the beaten track and see how the locals live.
And this is exactly what I intend to do.
Whether it’s through a country’s history, food, religion or lifestyle, I plan to learn about and uncover as much as I possibly can about the culture in each country I travel to and then share my experiences and discoveries on here with you lovely people.
From finding the most quintessentially British afternoon tea to discovering the way of life of an African tribe, I want to ensure that I get an in-depth taste for each culture I come across.
So please join me as I travel the world to feed my culture craving.
