Costa Rica

Hi. I am  Clare and welcome to my blog.

Read about my journey travelling the world.  In 2012 I sold my house and quit my job so that I could do more than a 2 or 3 week holiday a year, to do the thing I loved.  I have now visited a total of 68 countries and the travel bug is not going away, just getting stronger!

Follow my adventure and read about where I have visited and my plans for the future.
