Where Am I?


The UK! I’m currently back home in the UK after leaving Spain a bit earlier than planned! Stay tuned for the next part of my adventure, but in the meantime you can read about what I got up to whilst travelling through the Costa del Sol in June!  

Part 1: The time I had to utilise MI6 spy tactics to avoid a waiter

Operation: Avoid Getting Stalked

I read a lot of Spy/Black-ops/Secret-government-agency type books and fancy myself as a bit of a Secret Agent in Training.
