A Blog by a Bright Eyed Romantic
Book Reviews, Roadtrip Ideas & Creative Writing.
I love to read, but I want to write- but writing about myself traveling turned out tasteless and tiresome.
Perhaps this is because I was there. Because, to me, my life could not possibly live up to the standards of others. And also partly because within the worlds of fiction life always seems more colorful; in excess of emotion and always exceeds in adventure.
And so I had to change the idea I had of me merely traveling and start to look at things from a different perspective- a third person point of view. That is what I want Route and Review to become: a literary masterpiece hidden inside the world that I live in. Thus far I have written of my first two years in the USA and now that I have returned from another two year journey I am ready to once again share that adventure with you.
My most recent years spent in the USA were so adventurous that I fell behind on writing about them, but I took the time to capture the journey on my Instagram page and each destination has a description (and sometimes itinerary) of where I went and what I experienced.
I am setting off to Abu Dhabi
The focus of my blog will shift from my seasonal life in the USA to a steadier life in the UAE.
This new path will involve my new blog post to focus on my new destination and what it’s like to experience another country. I would also like to spend more time on my creative writing which means I will most likely incorporate my experiences here into a collection of short stories, eventually.
Along with my retellings/reviews of places, I will of course still continue to review books as well as share a poem every now and then.
Thank you for being there for the journey this far,
I can’t wait to tell you more!
