…and what is wombling?
Wombles are small and inventive fictional creatures, who live on Wimbledon Common.
(This one is wombling free)
Wombling is just how we little creatures from Wimbledon get around; to ‘womble’ is to wander about in a relaxed manner.
Originally from London, I study Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick. I began this blog when I found out I would be spending my year abroad at the University of Hong Kong. It was one of the best experiences of my life to date. My aim was to explore as much of Asia as my student loan would stretch to, and I think I did a pretty successful job of it – though there is so much more I wish to see.
I returned to the UK to finish my degree, but my next adventure will take me to the Netherlands; where I will be doing a Masters program, in ‘Politics, Society and Economy of Asia’, at Leiden University.
My interests include: cooking, cycling, pole fitness, art, history, international relations and travel. I am also attempting to learn Mandarin, with (very) gradual success.
My travel bucket list just keeps on growing, and my travel guides are the most well read and worn out books I own.
I wish to see, try, learn, and eat, as many new things as I can.
Here I intend to share with you my discoveries, adventures and mishaps – the latter of which I can only hope won’t be too numerous (although they do make good stories).
