#TravelBloggerProblems - The Link Up

 
Well hello there and happy bank holiday! It's pretty awesome having an extra day to do nothing (or something if you aren't lazy like I am) so today I'm taking part in the Travel Link Up. This month's theme is Travel Blogger Problems* and you can find out more about it here.
 
1. Falling in love with dogs all over the world and not being able to take any of them home.
It wasn't so bad in Australia as the dogs are weirdly wary of you there but in Thailand approximately 733099 dogs stole my heart. This little guy was on the AC snorkel boat on Koh Tao and was the cutest, naughtiest little guy ever. Then there was the little black & white puppy in Pai, the litter that lived down the road in Chiang Mai...the list is never ending.
 
2. Getting half way through your meal before remembering you should have taken a photo for your blog.
I will never be one of those people who takes photo's of their food for instagram or does food reviews because quite simply, I'm a little piggy and I enjoy eating my food whilst it's still hot. I remember half way through and it doesn't look quite as nice by then. Oops.
 
3. Feeling like a knob trying to take pictures of yourself.
It's not so bad when you have a willing boyfriend to take photos of you but you still feeling like an idiot trying to get photos of yourself leaning casually over a rail whilst gazing at the ocean. In fact I hated it that much that I gave up and now I just use all the stupid pics of me pulling faces and doing silly poses - Much more realistic.
 
4. Wishing you had a rucksack full of beautiful holiday clothes instead of well worn shorts and t shirts.
We all want to look super polished and pulled together when taking photos of ourselves for our blogs but when you're backpacking in a hot country the reality is you're tired, you're sweaty, your legs are covered in mosquito bites and the clothes you have are probably well worn and crumpled. Not exactly #Goals.
 
5. The constant urge to book another holiday or city break.
Every single day I text Jody saying 'Oh we should go here!' or 'Oh my God look how cheap it is to go to XXX!'. Reading other people's travel blogs just fans the fire even more and despite the fact I'm saving for a mortgage, I am DYING to get another country ticked off the list. (Although this problem doesn't apply exclusively to travel bloggers!)

* Obviously these aren't exactly 'real' problems. I'm super lucky to have been able to go to the places I've been too and I've got a pretty sweet life.

  1. Awww that puppy is so cute, and I imagine it must be so hard to resist the urge to take at least a few home! I totally get what you mean with the getting halfway through meals too, I'm usually quite good but sometimes...lol! Great post x

  4. Haha I feel the same way about cats! I wonder if the huge bloggers still forget to take photos until they've started their meal or feel like a knob taking photos?

  5. I manage to wear the same dress in every photo!

  6. Puppy love - so fun but so hard! And I agree, if something is genuinely tasty it takes a lot of restraint not to just dive in :)
