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 and within a budget.
My childhood was spent roaming around the English countryside with my small family of 6. 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 honestly and realistically, I did. 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.
Lets Go Somewhere Else was created with my past and present in mind. Not every one has money or time for lavish holidays. With popular social media photos creating travel envy and wanderlust you never knew you had, all you need to be armed with is an open mind, a few days holiday allowance and your set budget.
But who actually am I?
At 28 years old, I currently work as a Receptionist in a 9-5 job, earning minimum wage. I live in Zone 6 in London (The furthest one from Central London) where I have lived my whole life. Conveniently, I live next to an airport! My job is working for an airline, however I’ve not used the benefits for my trips so far. If I do, I will make sure I state this clearly for you! I have a partner who actually hates to travel too, I like to drag him on weekend road trips (much to his delight) Perhaps he will be featured on here one day! I have two cats, I like movies, journaling and Disney!
…and that’s me! I hope you enjoy my website and if you want to contact me at all you can do so here: KirstinDalton@Yahoo.com
