Why

I created this blog to hopefully make a living off of it one day. Just kidding. It is almost impossible to make a living off of a blog. All of those articles you read about quitting your job and blogging about your travels in order to earn money to continue traveling are mostly rubbish.

I earn $0 from this blog. In fact, I pay for this blog. I pay to make this blog ad-free. I pay to have this blog hosted in the mystical clouds. I pay for extra storage because the photos in this blog take up a lot of space. I pay for the fancy blog template and custom blog URL. I pay for loads of blog flare.

This blog is the travel-only offshoot of an expat blog I created in 2011 to keep my friends, family and strangers around the world abreast of my life in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UKoGBaNI).
