Salut, Hallo, Ciao, Hola (I could go on forever) and welcome to my blog! Thanks for visiting – I hope you’re enjoying it! I created this blog to provide tips, tricks and advice on travelling on a budget while making the most of your time in different cities and regions around the world.
I’m assuming that, since you clicked on this page, you want to find out who The Flyaway Girl is. Well, that’s me.
My name is Penelope Louise and I’m 22 years of age. I’m British by passport and currently live in Bath. At current, I’m an undergraduate student at the University of Bath studying German and International Management. I work as a part-time photographer and a part-time traveller… If the latter could become full-time then I would be a very happy Penelope!
I speak English and German and un poquito Spanish (I’ve forgotten quite a bit of it). I absolutely love learning languages and always try to learn the basics when I visit a country.
I have currently visited 50 countries in the world and my current bucket list “to-do” is to visit every country in Europe. I’m at approximately 75%, depending on how you classify some countries (e.g. is Kosovo a country, is Russia in Europe or Asia etc).

January – Czech Republic (Prague)
February – USA (San Francisco and Yosemite)
