Hi I’m Emma and I’m your friendly Gohemian Girl Guide! Nope I’m not going to sell you cookies, but I am going to take you on an adventure….beyond the 9 to 5 and to where your life really begins…ON THE ROAD!
I’m British, 28, an ex-burlesque dancer and a proud Goho girl.
Now I bet your thinking ‘Okay Em that’s cool, but what on earth is a Gohemian?!’ Well…it’s basically a Bohemian with added Go-Go-Juice (as Honey Boo Boo Child would say…God I love her).
But seriously, the dictionary would read:
‘Gohemian’ Definition: (n) ‘one who lives an unconventional life, (v) to go wild. (“she just couldn’t go back to her old life, so she went Gohemian”).’ – A term coined by Cameron Tuttle, author of The Bad Girls Guide to The Road (one of my favourites).
I am fueled by my passion to travel all over the world and get away from corporate livin’. I believe that life begins when you try living outside of your comfort zone. I admit it’s scary but boy is it exciting!
I dreamt about travelling for years and so I did it. I packed my bags and went on a Round The World trip starting in India and ending in the USA – it was that easy. And it can be that easy for you too because I am here to tell you that you are capable of doing this too! There are no rules in this world, only decisions yet to be made…so be a Gohemian and GO for it!
GohemianTravellers is a blog that celebrates unusual travel plans, independence and hardcore happiness. I offer advice, reviews & experiences and shoulder to cry on…if you need it. Because believe me, life on the road is tough but what would an adventure be without it’s challenges?! Nada, that’s what!
My discussions of travel adventures, life stories and fancy-dress escapades keep readers coming back for more and have also awarded me with recognition from major brands like Tesco Travel, Panasonic and Thomas Cook. I’m also a blog-curator for NYC-based Travel recommendation site Wanderfly, a featured blogger on the Huffington Post and a UK Pinterest Blog ambassador.
And I am working on my own e-book entitled ‘Round The World Relationships (Travel Highs, Travel Lows and Beachside Break Ups).
My next endeavour is going to be into TEFL teaching which will hopefully take me to live in dreamy Japan next year. I’m excited to write about what it’s like to be an expat in a crazy yet magical country and all that goes with that.
I am also working on a business plan to work with more brands I support, to write more eBooks and to finally leave my day job! WOOOO!
If I can do it my dears, so can you! I am the Pin-Up girl with a plan….care to join me? Let’s GO!
