30 BEFORE 30

it’s okay to be alone

STORYTIME | MY TRANSIT FROM HELL

There I was heading off to England; a place I had wanted to visit for what seems like a lifetime, but in typical Racquel fashion, something had to go wrong, and guess what? Nearly everything that could go wrong, went wrong. INSTAGRAM: RACQUELHARDIE It was 2am on February the 1st when I realised in my […]

FAREWELL AUSSIE LAND! #RacsSoloEuroTrip

I was just scrolling through Tumblr and I came across this quote from Stephen King’s On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft… “The scariest moment is always just before you start” This quote immediately spoke to me. I didn’t know if I wanted to write a blog post before I left for my trip; I actually […]
