I’ve always loved to read fiction. Sitting in a comfy arm chair or laid out on the beach, there’s something truly magical about the way in which the pages of a book can transport you to another world; somewhere far from the reality in which we’ve found ourselves here on earth.
As a child, I would spend hours reading Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree. A series of four enchanting stories that are set in a magical wood, the books were published between 1939 and 1951 yet their characters provided me with so much enjoyment every time I sat down to read.
In my mind, I was there with Jo, Bessie, and Fanny as they set off on their adventures with the folk of the Faraway world. I think it’s probably party responsible for my insatiable wanderlust! I love nothing more than exploring new places.
It was no surprise to me
