Who is the Five Foot Traveller?
Hi, my name is Anis, I’m five foot tall, I have flat feet and love to write about travel.
When I quit full-time employment in June 2012, I was very, very scared but curious to know how it would all turn out. The Big News is that I’m still alive, much happier, travelling more than ever and have loads of new friends, so I must be doing something right.
I enjoy hanging out with anyone who can make me think and tell me something I don’t know. Great writing and great ideas inspire me.
I don’t really have a purpose when I travel- I do it because I love it, and because I feel alive when I’m out there with the wind on my face. You know how we’re all different when we’re happy? That’s exactly how I feel about myself when I travel. I like the person I become when I’m travelling, I don’t like the ‘me’ I turn into when I’m stuck indoors.
When it comes to reading, I’d like to think that Twitter hasn’t messed up my brain and shortened my attention span to five seconds, so if I’m still reading something after 15 minutes, that comes under Pretty Good Stuff. If I’m still reading after one hour, that probably means Pretty Darn Incredible. What is the point of this paragraph? I try to look for websites and blogs that can keep me coming back again and again.
If you’d like to talk about freelance writing work, especially travel writing, or if you have any questions at all, you can contact me at anis (at) fivefeetflat (dot) net.
*Here’s where I tell you what I don’t do: I don’t publish press releases or infographics of any kind produced by other people, so if that’s what you have in mind, I’ll have to say no.
Thanks for dropping by and safe travels always,
Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (if I’m forced to stay at home).
