About Me

PicMonkey Collage

I’m Tara – a 22 year old, trilingual, recently graduated Brit who created this blog as a way to procrastinate during my University exams, ended up investing far too much time in it and, well, here we are…

That was back in 2014 and, since then, I’ve lived in Russia and Spain, volunteered and backpacked all over Latin America, explored a ton of European cities and I’m currently living and working in New Zealand. I know, I know – it’s every twenty-something’s dream to travel the world and it’s not like ‘girl with a backpack and a thirst for adventure‘ is exactly a niche market these days but I’m gonna roll with it anyway. Hopefully, I can inform/entertain/inspire in one way or another! Otherwise, I guess this is just for my Mom to read…
Hi Mom!

After countless discussions about what my URL name should be (to my horror, ‘TARAvelling the world’ was actually a close contender…), sojourneywithme was the one that resonated the most. Life’s a journey, right? and, for that reason alone, it was a winner but it’s also a play on the word ‘sojourn’ (I’m a language nerd, forgive me)…

Sojourn: A temporary stay in a place as a traveler or guest.

So, this is my journey – filled with sojourns…
Feel free to tag along for the ride!

    • Hey! I don’t think I’d have time to do the award justice being out here in Central America but I’m so grateful that you’re enjoying my posts! Just had a look through your blog – your photos are amazing! Looking forward to keeping up with and being inspired by your adventures 🙂

      • That’s not a problem – no obligation to do it 🙂 Thank you – and look forward to hearing more about your adventures, Central America is somewhere I’ve not read much about. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  1. Hi Tara! Happy to have found your blog! I love the layout, the style the content…everything! I’ve read some of your posts and I can’t wait to read more! I’m a travel lover too so I’m definitely looking forward to following you 🙂
