Hi! I’m Keira; born and raised on the Cornish coast in the UK, with itchy feet and the inane inability to stay still for long.
In my early teens, travelling was something I often thought about, yet never envisioned myself doing. Coming from humble beginnings where money was tight, the possibility of seeing the world was rendered to books, films and a fierce imagination.
Now, at twenty two, I’ve accomplished more than I ever could have imagined; having already visited roughly 20 countries and many more planned. Impressive for someone who could never go anywhere alone a few years back.
Other than travelling, I’ve been a bookworm since I was little, so you’d probably find me with my face in a book when I’m home. On the flip side, I’m a massive music fan and love getting lost in the crowd at a gig, or, when that isn’t possible, having a wee boogie to some music on a road trip.
Photography is another passion of mine, which I one day hope to merge with travel to be on the front covers of Nat Geo (a girl can dream).
After (literally) over two years of procrastination, I’ve finally decided to compile my travel experiences and tips into some form of a blog, with the hope of helping others who may be facing the same struggles as I did. I still have so much left to learn, and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
Here’s a more in depth (and serious) dive into my journey, if you’re curious to hear more.
If you happen to come across this blog and you aren’t from Cornwall, allow me to briefly explain my choice of blog name. The word ‘dreckly‘ is a Cornish phrase, meaning ‘an unspecified time, later’. For example; “see you dreckly”, or “I’ll do it dreckly”, which could also mean in a minute/day/week/month. Actually, no one ever really knows, but soon in the not too distant future, probably.
