Who am I?

Hi I’m Cosmo (my real name is Carla) ๐Ÿ‘‹

I’m an English girl, living in France, learning French and Spanish, and with no set plans except to take each day at a time…. and travel as much as I can!

This blog started as a way to document all the street art I found around the world – that’s actually the reason I started travelling a lot!

But after a while I was finding so many cool, secret places and art/artists thatย I just wanted to tell people about them (especially fellow creative-type people looking for alternative things to do when travelling, instead of the usual tourist attractions and sights).


Most people want to know how I travel so much.

Let me put it this way: when I travel I don’t travel in luxury!! Who can afford to do that!? Not me!

I take buses, trains, cheap flights… I make the most of deals, reductions, coupons… I find cheap ways of doing things.

Sometimes if I’m really strapped for cash I take lunch with me instead of eating out… my point is, I want to travel so bad that I find a way.

The experience of finding a way to get somewhere, no matter how long and uncomfortable it is – that’s part of the fun of travelling! It all adds to the experience!


I’ve always been a writer and an art lover, and I’ve always loved visiting new places, doing things that are ‘different’, and getting inspired creatively.

As well as travelling I spend a lot of time learning languages, painting my own artwork, and going to exhibitions and galleries, but unfortunately I can’t write about everything I do because I don’t have enough time!๐Ÿ˜‚

Back when I wasn’t so busy I used to paint heaps of postcard-sized artwork and leave them in random places wherever I travelled to.

My “travelling art” would then be picked up by random people in the street (sometimes like a creeper I would hide and wait to see their reaction to finding it ๐Ÿ˜‚ย ).

I will start doing this again really soon so keep a look out for my instagram – maybe you’ll be near the location I leave some next time!


Anyway, I’ll leave it there as you’ll learn the most about me by reading my blog posts and following my Instagram – so maybe I’ll see you soon!ย ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜—
