Hi, I’m a recent graduate in  architectural technology, living and studying in the North East of Scotland. I am passionate about architecture, and have recently caught the travel bug (which led to the name ‘Gypsy Architecture’). I  reached a point in my life where all the sayings, like ‘you only live once’, finally started to take on some urgency. Everyone has dreams, ideas of things they would love to do but instead fill their heads with reasons why not to fulfil them. My excuses, being a student, always focus on time and money. But I dream of travelling and seeing the world, a feeling fellow travellers-at-heart will understand.

As a result, I have decided to defer my application to progress into the full MArch Architecture course, and instead plan to travel. I’m thinking Australia on a work and travel visa. Anyone with experience in this area, your advice is welcome!

I will use this blog to write about my travels and my experiences, describing the people and places I see. I hope you enjoy my stories and please feel free to comment and ask questions!

Thank you for reading.

  1. Thank you for following my blog. That is great that you love to travel and share your adventures. Do all you can while you are young and don’t waste a minute of it. Keep blogging and sharing. Best wishes for a happy life.

  2. Fantastic subject for a blog, I want to go there myself so I’ll be following you! Thanks for stopping by SkySense, the blog about how to have less stress and more fun on the air travel portion of your journeys!

  3. Thank you for visiting. I just started this new blog today and I am proud to tell you that you are the first one to have visited. I barely posted it and you already said you liked it. Thank you and I wish you all the luck in the world for your travelling endeavours, Everything else is always more important and we never put our dreams in motion and time passes and that dream never gets realized. Good for you for thinking like that again lots of luck. I will be visiting from time to time to see where you’re at with your travels.

  4. Hi, thanks for a like to my post. I’m no expert but I think your love of travel combined with your love of architecture will lead you into a well rounded and interesting career long-term. Janice

  5. Embrace life indeed! I’m pretty bad at making excuses myself but lately, I’ve seen some personally important doors opening up after lots of prayer and trust. I hope your journies are filled with adventure. Have you thought about making a bucket list of all the things you hope to do in life – or atleast in the next year? I’ve been thinking about creating one.

    • It’s great to hear that things are working out for you. And yes I have started making a bucket list. Although I’ve only got about 70-odd things on it at the moment. But there’s no rush to finish it, just need to start crossing things off!

  6. Hah! Seems like I need to polish up my Doric..(I’m originally from Elgin) It has been a long time since I’ve needed it! I can honestly tell you that being “Scottish” and travelling wherever is possible on any budget whatsoever 😉
    Best wishes from (the somewhat sunnier) South Africa!

  7. Thank you for visiting my little blog! I hope it gave you something that you needed that day. I love architecture. Although I have never formally studied it, I use it as inspiration when I build and create. Good luck with your travels and discoveries.

  8. Hey Stephen,

    Thanks for liking my blog. When you do come to Australia, give me a shout & I’d be more than happy to show you around Melbourne. I’m in no means an expert at all things Melbourne but I’m sure to find a great few spots on what you like. Perhaps you could suggest my next blog post?

    Anyway, I’ll see what I can find about Australian work visas too.

    Looking forward to reading more about your travels. Good luck with Peru!

  9. Australia is a wonderful place for a gap year! Even better if you can drive 🙂 Be sure to hop on over to Newcastle , NSW!
