solo travel black woman

Last week I received a message on Instagram from a lovely woman who asked to learn more about my travel experiences.

So where HAVE you been? I hear you all cry.

Writing your first novel? Single handedly fighting for world peace?

Yup I said it.

Monday, 6 June 2016

We piled on to the bus for Lincoln bleary eyed and bushy haired at 5am last Friday. At that point I don’t think any of us could have known the full extent of the effect that was to come from the weekend ahead of us.
