Welcome to Nomadic Meg!
So, who am I? My real name is Megan, I shortened it to Meg for the title of this blog, and I tend to gallivant around the internet as Meggie Kay, so pick whichever you’d like to call me, I don’t really care. I’m a fairly typical 20-something year-old. I graduated university with a Fine Arts degree and I’m now in working world full time. Travelling and living abroad is my biggest passion… and it’s also what this blog is all about if you haven’t guessed that already.
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru
I didn’t get bit by the travel bug, I inherited it. It started with my grandfather who even now at 70+ years old takes what seems like 1 trip a month. He passed it down to my dad who uses his adventurous expat children as an excuse to travel and see new places. This love of travel eventually ended up at me. Moving to a new town almost every other year as a child made me develop a love of travel at an early age.
“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.” – Aldous Huxley
Growing up this way, I can’t imagine living in one place for my whole life. I like wandering and experiencing daily life in all kinds of countries. I think it’s a great way to explore the planet. Nothing allows you to experience a culture more than living as a local. This type of travel also allows me to travel regions long term and in great depth.
“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
With this blog, I like to focus on the stumbles of expat living. Among the amusing stories of life around the world, I like to inform you of each area I live in and explore. Guides of what to see and do (usually playing up my love of art, history, geography, and adrenaline) as well as general travel tips and reviews of places to eat, play, and relax are also included in this blog. I never know where I will be living next, but if you follow me on this nomadic adventure, you’re sure to be surprised and inspired to take off on your own.
