Welcome to my site! Here you can read all about me and why I set up this travel & life abroad blog – and have a surf around, get inspired: Adventure Travel, Greek culture, its islands & lifestyle plus ‘alternative’ travel means (container ship anyone?) – it’s all here!
A British travel writer/Rough Guide contributor, Rebecca Hall (Bex) finds herself living in the slighly chaotic country of Greece.
Why “Leaving Cairo…?”
I tried to live the 9-5 Mon – Fri and love my country of birth…I tried really hard, but day by day, my soul was being eaten up. So I changed and took control of my life, before it took control of me.
This blog was started in 2010, once I’d been in Greece for two years & after having spent the summer of that year teaching in Cairo, Egypt. I fully intended to stay there, but found my love of Greece eventually drew me back to her. Hence the name of my blog.
I write about the cultural differences observed (of which there are many!), the beautiful places visited here (islands and mainland) and the people who’ve let me into their homes and hearts. But it doesn’t stop there:
From trips across Canada by rail to the polar bear capital of the world, across the U.S.A in a Green Tortoise bus and even from Europe to Hong Kong on a container ship, you’ll find stories here about my varied worldwide adventures.
I’m working on my first novel (around my day job) – a fish out of water story about one girl, one country and her experiences there and people encountered. I am available for guest posts, freelance writing work about any aspect of expat life, travelling or…just about anything!
I love hearing from fans. Thanks for stopping by.
