A little bit about me…
My name is Abbie Glew. I am 24, and I live in Camberley, Surrey (just outside of London).
I work as an accountant at a firm in London, have done for 6 years! But I am now taking a ‘career break’ to travel the world … After all, there has to be more to life than numbers, right?
Travelling is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but since leaving college I have been studying to become a chartered accountant. Now that whole “get a qualification” thing is ticked off the list and I have actually saved some money, I thought it an ideal time to take the plunge.
The 17th of August is/was my last day as a paid employee… scary thought!
I knew I wanted to document my travels for memory’s sake, but writing in a diary is just to much like hard work. I am terrible at spelling (grammar police please be kind I am dyslexic) and painfully slow at handwriting, so blogging seemed like an ideal solution. Spell check and backspace are my best friends.
It also means I can keep my family and friends up to date, and of course, jealous of all the fun I am having.
So here I am giving the whole blogging thing a go 🙂
Thanks for reading.
