Now before you think I’ve reached a level of self-entitlement because I appear to travel often (according to Instagram) this blog post is merely tongue in cheek. I have hopefully softened the harshness with the use of memes and gifs.
I guess this post came from a thought I had about people being a little *too* overfamiliar online. Whilst it’s great, sometimes as a traveller and content creator, you need to know your boundaries. Most of us are busy and being bombarded with DMs from those who aren’t supportive but more surveillance social media users can get a little draining. So here are 8 things people who travel often may be tired of hearing:
The same way you spend your money on illegal substances, ugly designer bags that are only in fashion for a week and your dead relationship. WOW, that was bitter but really it’s all about what you prioritise. And let’s be real, it’s cheaper to catch a flight internationally than it is the travel domestically sometimes. Research and preparation are key.
To also add, asking how someone affords their lifestyle when you don’t know them is weird. If someone has a glucose guardian, has a huge salary, has a ton of side-hustles, that is their business. They may choose to share it with you or not.
Unless I chose to show who I am with, whether its friends, family, a travel bae, it’s none of your business.
Not sure if this was a vague attempt at flirting but the answer is – WE’RE NOT. I don’t know about you but I am very picky about who I travel with these days hence why most of my trips are with myself. However, if you would like to travel with me I am currently in the process of drafting a 10 page application form and compatibility tests.
Potentially the most British response you can get but again the answer is no. My luggage is allowance is usually 23kg to 30kg and you my friend are double, triple or quadraple this weight.
Yes. This makes me quote the infamous Chris Brown lyric: You can’t hate from outside the club, you can’t even get in.
No. Provide the funds with commission in advance and maybe I’ll reconsider.
NO. IS MY NAME THOMAS COOK?
There are independent and major travel agents and tour operators out there for a reason. Now don’t get me wrong I have family ask me to plan their trips for them all the time and it’s part of the family member contract but when it’s randomers – please stop. Read my blog instead.
On a serious note, there is SO much free information out there. All it takes is time to research, a little flexibility, an open mind and money. Travel isn’t free.
Am I the Jesus of travel where I can change prices?
Anyway as I will always say if you want to join the travel club, it’s very simple – BOOK THE FLIGHT.

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
