About Me

Hello and thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet!

I’m Georgina. I’m 25 and I’m a journalist, Guardian columnist, traveller, good eyebrow enthusiast (when they receive due care) and chronic online over-sharer.

This blog is my way opening up an discussions pertaining to travel, identity and personal development.



Travel to me, is a way of figuring  out more about my identity by immersing myself in other cultures and ways of living.

As societal stereotypes around black and mixed identity continue to be defined for us instead of with us,  a travel movement involving more women and people of colour is starting to thrive. 

I document the ways in which travel and identity intersect and aim to travel honestly and authentically wherever possible.


I write honestly about my experiences and my quest for deeper travel experiences.

I’ve written a column for the Guardian about uncovering my heritage which you can read here. And his blog is a way of continuing the conversation.

Here you’ll find posts about how travel has helped me on a journey to self-acceptance as well as others related to race, identity and family. I also offer tips on how to live and work remotely and share my travel tips, essays and stories.

I hope my writings will encourage others learn more about themselves and their place in the world – whatever their background, and wherever their travels take them.

Here’s to my journey of self-discovery… please subscribe and follow along!
