Hi, I'm Tasha and this is the first post of my blog World Inside My PocketIf you've read my 'about' page you'll know I'm currently a student based in Leeds studying English Literature. I spend lots of time reading old books in old libraries and although I do love rambling these fictional worlds, my main passion is exploring this world. That's what this blog is going to be about. I'm going to document my adventures in writing and pictures as I travel around. I won't be completely restricted to writing about travel, however: I'm an opinionated person and I'm excited to use this space as a platform to talk to my dear attentive friend, the Internet, about my thoughts on all kinds of fabulous things.

You might be wondering- hey, how are you planning to run a travel blog while living in one place? Well, my vigilant reader, at the moment my plan is to write about all the places I've been in the past year or so, initially. Since last September I've been to Budapest, Paris, Amsterdam, Reykjavik and Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote, not to mention all over London and the North of England. I'll spend the next few months writing all about these places, where to go, where to avoid and telling stories of my experiences and any troubles that I've encountered.

This summer I'll be spending a month in the Loire Valley in North France learning French and after that I've planned a month-long trip around Eastern Europe and the Balkans, travelling from Romania up to Slovenia in a U-shape. You'll get the pleasure of hearing all about these beautiful places in detail and seeing my millions upon millions of pictures. (yaaay)  I really can't stop taking pictures when I get on a roll, just as a heads-up. I know photographs taken with my iPhone whilst running for a bus or on a moving train aren't going to turn out great. I just- can't- help it…

Next year from September I'll be studying in Lyon -which is so exciting!- and as well as perfecting my language skills (hurrah, French) I'm going to take advantage of my location by exploring the Alps regions and surrounding countries.

By the time I finish my degree, I hope (fingers crossed) to have saved up some money to go travelling long-term with no end in sight. I'll finally venture out of Europe and see Asia, the Americas, and anywhere else my wanderlust takes me.

Much love <3
