A Feeder Travels is dedicated to the travel adventures of a food obsessed cake lady from the UK.
It was founded in 2014 to chronicle the highs and lows of finally letting go of the trappings of a life that no longer served me and starting afresh with new adventures overseas. I gained a lot from reading other peoples blogs as i went through the chrysalis process and wanted to share my own journey as i started ticking off as many things off my travel and personal development to do list while travelling around the world.
For a long time i worked in roles that required overseas travel but i was always rushing in and out of places and never had the chance to get under the skin of them. My life worked well and i was happy but i was often pondering “is this it?” All roads leading to acquiring stuff and reaching arbitrary goals? I had already reached all the goals i had set myself early on in my career and progressing further didn’t feel right. I was ready for a new set of challenges.
I had a long held desire to travel and work for myself and an idea that it would happen someday, “when x had happened” or “when y had been paid off” or when the next contract had ended. But there was always another safety net just around the corner to keep me in my comfort zone. I felt like it was the right thing to do but the reality of stepping away from the security of my old life was terrifying so i stalled for 6 years.
I finally plucked up the courage to leave the sunny shores of the UK in September 2014 to start doing all the things i had ever wanted to do. With all roads leading to a mortgage free life of travel, working for myself doing things that leave a positive impact on others and making them and me smile at the same time.
Stories feature tips and tales from trips, living as an expat as well as profiles of people i have met along the way and the lessons that they have taught me. I also deep dive into the challenges that i have faced on these wonderful adventures, as for as many days there are incredible adventures there are tough days that i have to ring myself out of to get there too.
I’d love to hear all about you, your travel fears and adventures. Drop me a note, and i’ll get back to you as soon as i can.
