So this is me: Claire Sturzaker aka @clairesturz
A thirty-something dreamer, traveller and lost soul; wandering the Earth until I find what I’m looking for. A food, drink and life-lover, my wanderlust keeps growing by the day!
This blog began in 2013, as Tales of Barcelona. I moved to Barcelona after having somewhat of a mid-life crisis when I lost my job. I was 30 years old, with no job, no house, no boyfriend…. and a serious case of itchy feet! On a cold, wet October day in Manchester, England, I made up my mind & booked my one-way flight for Barcelona!
However, after a couple of years there my feet started to itch once again. This time, South America was calling me. So I decided to quit my job in Barcelona, and booked another one way ticket – this time to Bolivia – and began a journey to discover South America for myself.
Tales of Barcelona became Tales of a Backpacker as I set off on my travels, with a backpack on my back & walking boots on my feet, I am ready for whatever South America has to offer me. I write about my adventures as I go, as well as tips, tricks and musings about life on the road.
I hope you find the information useful & inspiring – any comments & feedback are welcome!
Happy travels, wherever your feet may take you!
Love Claire xx
