This month’s guest interview features Curious Jessie!
Tell us about yourself?
My name is Jessie, a Media and Journalism Graduate turned Digital Marketer.
I just happen to be a scouser, which must mean I’m from Liverpool. In August 2015 I finally took the plunge and left my hometown to travel the world with my Girlfriend. We travelled the world for 14 months. I blog about a few different things, these include, Travel, Marketing, Design and LGBT issues.
What motivated you to start blogging?
I first started a blog many years ago, which I deleted. I was young and looking back it was dreadful. It was just something I enjoyed doing and the feedback was always great, the blogging world is a wonderful community. Along side sharing my travel adventure with the world I also blog as a way to develop an online presence, exploring how relationships are built online. I work as a Digital Marketer; I’d be silly not to investigate the world online. Blogging is also a great way for me to practice my writing. I studied Journalism at university and writing is something I desperately wanted to scrub up on. It also helps with developing my own voice.
What is your biggest fear when traveling?
It’s normal to be apprehensive before embarking on an around the world trip. We naturally worry about the unknown. My biggest fear will always be safety. Being a woman we have to worry about these things, even in the comfort of our own home. Unless you are some kind of bionic woman who doesn’t care less about their safety, I’m sure the worry of being assaulted has crossed your mind. Just being a woman sometimes makes you feel more vulnerable.
Where is your favorite place you have visited? Why?
All day long, New Zealand, New Zealand, New Zealand. It’s the most beautiful, picturesque places in the world. The landscape looks and feels as though it was painted by *insert famous painter here*, it’s just so surreal. I instantly had a warm feeling about New Zealand despite the freezing temperatures. We visited in winter, which definitely added to its beauty. New Zealand might also be my favorite because this is where many firsts were broken during my trip. My first skydive, first time skiing, New Zealand is a place where you will scratch off a hell of a lot on your bucket list.
Where do you want to go next?
I can’t surely list them all? To name a few, I’d love to visit Scotland, Canada, Iceland, ‘oooo’ and Switzerland. I feel like there is a snowy mountain theme going on here. That must be the New Zealand influence coming through. Basically, anywhere with beautiful mountains and ill be dreaming of the views.
