About Me

I’m Hannah, I’m a Law student at Durham University! I’m in my third and final year of my law degree – meaning I’ll soon be forced to enter the real world, and no more long summer breaks! I’m having a year out after I finish University as no one wants to employ me, cry. However, I’m working on being location independent so I can travel and explore – who knows I might even make a career of it if I’m lucky! 

I first discovered my passion for travelling when I was 18. I’d just finished Sixth Form College and I went travelling with my boyfriend & friends. That year I travelled to 5 different places without my family for the first time, all paid for by myself. I realised how easy it was to travel and how freeing it could be, and since then I’ve not been able to stop!

Why Travel?

Why not? Unlike many of my peers, I never had the famous ‘Gap Year’ (or Gap Yahhh), but I haven’t let that stop me yet. I have been having what one may describe as, Gap Summer’s, where I travel all summer but otherwise I study and work the rest of the year. It means working whilst I study, but it’s worth it.

Also, who doesn’t want to see the world?

Mount Kilimanjaro

When I started University I was going through a rough time in my life, and with nothing to motivate me I decided to find a challenge. Having numerous health issues and poor fitness, I crazily signed up to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

In September 2017, I successfully summited the peak, albeit 3 hours behind the rest of my team, raising £3000 for the charity Dig Deep. Dig Deep works in communities in Kenya to help bring taps, toilets and training to improve lives and hygiene.

In 2019, I will be climbing Mount Kenya with Dig Deep, so keep posted as  I will make sure to post all about it!
