My name is Kiara Gallop and I blog over at Gallop Around the Globe. It’s a travel and photography site which focuses on all my favourite things - beautiful landscapes and architecture, hiking, cycling, art, culture, music, and food. I’ve recently returned from a 5-month trip through South America, and am busy writing about my adventures and experiences on the continent right now!

Keeping Out the Homesickness

It's one thing going travelling for several weeks seeing different towns, cities and countries, it's a whole other thing moving to a different country to fulfil a temporary contract. I know I'm going for a short time, and I know that after a short break, I'll be coming home, but this trip will be the longest I've been away from home, and the longest I've been away from my dog- it'll be almost 2 months when I get back.

Introducing Finland

"Have you visited Finland before?" Everyone asks me, lately.

The answer is no. Nope, I'm going blind. I've never been to Finland before, and yet I've accepted a work contract there for five weeks... mad? Perhaps. Excited? Definitely. Since I haven't been, I sat down about a week before with my trusty Rough Guide to Europe on a Budget (the best travel guide I've ever bought) and read a bit about this country I'll be calling home for the next few weeks.

Whilst I'm in the Area...

The contract for my new job is just a temporary one, and ends shortly after Christmas. This means that come January I'll be unemployed. Being unemployed in January, and moping at home seems like a total waste of mine, and everyone involved's time. Therefore I've decided to do the obvious thing; whilst I'm in the area, I'll travel!
