The Aerska Story, by Gillian Davison
I’ve always had itchy feet. I’m also a bit of a dreamer. I remember being little and deciding to run away and explore the world. I got as far as the woods across from my house, spent an hour paddling in the river and wandering aimlessly until my mum called me for dinner. I headed home. I’m not one to skip meals.
After university, I moved from my quiet Scottish town to Tokyo, seeking adventure. Since then that craving for travel which the Germans call Fernweh, hit me hard. I’ve spent time living in Sydney, London and Copenhagen and that love for travel continues to grow.
Cities are my thing. Waking up at the crack of dawn to hit the pavements and explore unfamiliar streets is the best feeling in the world. I prefer to do it with a coffee in hand (total addict) and will also travel far for a good breakfast spot; they do say that nothing helps scenery like bacon and eggs.
