Hello and welcome to Travel Heart, the blog created for those who love to travel!
My name is Charlene and up until three years ago, I was your average university student unsure what I wanted to do with my life.
That was until a friend of mine suggested we take a gap year and explore South America, at first I gave her a funny look, a little bit of a giggle and said “no way”, but when she replied with “why the hell not” it got me thinking.
That summer, after the university year ended me and Katie, packed a bag of essentials and headed to the airport on a big adventure. I wasn’t sure what to expect, I didn’t know how to prepare and I certainly didn’t know if I was going to enjoy it or not, but three years later, here I am a travel writer and blogger.
I am currently preparing for the biggest adventure of my life; around the world trip commencing this coming summer.
If I’m being honest, I’m absolutely petrified and even though I’ve had some amazing trips, being away for a year if a little daunting.
Up until now, Travel Heart has been a place for the travelling community to come together, share their tips and tricks and stories on their adventures around the world. We’ve become quite good friends with us organising a few special meetups whilst away, which is fantastic when you need to see some familiar faces.
When I’m away I’ll be creating content about places I intend to visit along the way, along with featuring other people’s content where possible in line with our previous posts so you won’t just get bored with me.
If you’re interested in contributing to the site, head on over to my write for us page to find out more about how to submit your own travel related guest post. All I ask is that you stick to my guidelines and that all guest posts fit in nicely with our current content and posts such as travel essentials, how to travel with a family and tips for making friends when travelling alone.
If you want to contact me for any reason, such as if you’ve found a problem with the site or there’s something factually incorrect, or any other reason, visit the contact page and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
Enjoy the site & your travels.
