Hello to you, the fabulous reader of this blog!
I am Michaela (or Micks as my pals call me).
What do you need to know about me? Well, I’m not quite sure what you’d find interesting but here are a few things…
I would describe myself as an ‘Adult in Training’ (none of us ever really feel like real grown ups, do we?) I am the youngest of 3 – the ‘free spirit’ of the clan, the traveller. I started writing when I was around 21 – it became a coping mechanism for me when I was going through a pretty rough time in life. When I was 25 a friend read some of my stuff and said she would enjoy reading my musings… and voila! This little blog was born (although I did start off on tumblr).
Things I like: writing (obvs), music – The Beatles are my all time favourites, yellow, penguins, sarcasm, friends, family, travelling, Mexican food and margaritas.
The different parts of this blog are
About me – this includes posts that help you get to know me a bit better
Mick’s Musings – My thoughts on various things, lessons learnt, storms weathered.
Adventures of The Girl with the Backpack – all travel related posts.
This is me thinking out loud, stumbling through life one post as a time.
Welcome to the circus!
