Finding My Island 79
London, England
Hi, I'm Sophie, blogger and traveller at I've travelled all over South East Asia, lived in Australia, Thailand and the Philippines, and reading maps (nerd alert!) eating Thai curry and salsa dancing, sometimes all at the same time! For more in depth travel info check out my blog below. For more pretty pics I'm @findingmyisland on Instagram. Happy travels!
