Welcome to my blog. My name is Kirstin and I am here to show you that you can travel and see the world without quitting your day job (or going over your holiday allowance limit!)
I started this travel blog as a little outlet for me. I used to scrap book for a few years but realised this was too much time, I wasn’t showing it to anyone and I also rarely uploaded photos on Facebook. People started to complain, so here we are!
The title Lets Go Somewhere Else was born when I realised that people were remembering me as Kristin and I had a little panic no one would ever be able to find me online if I told then my name.
My childhood was spent roaming around the English countryside with my small family. Armed with a tent (and a kettle – apparently the most important item) we ventured in to places like Weymouth and Cornwall. I don’t want to say that I came from a poorer than average background, but I did. So it wasn’t until I was 19 that I took my first trip abroad for my birthday – Paris.
It was soon after that trip that I hopped on a plane for the first time too. My first flight was to NYC was later that year. (I really jumped in at the deep end there, 9 hours!) It was after this trip that despite my fear of flying, my love for travel went way beyond a yearly holiday.
I currently live in London, UK where I was born and raised. I am currently working as temp staff as a receptionist.
I was previously a full time receptionist at London Stock Exchange. I have a Photography Diploma under my belt and I really enjoy writing too. I also really like Disney, but I think this will be apparent when you read my blog!
Here is a mini questionnaire to get to know me a little better.
