Who am I?
Hi I’m Cosmo (my real name is Carla) 👋
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….!
This blog started as a way to document all the street art I found around the world – that’s mainly why I started travelling a lot! But after a while I was finding so many cool places and art/artists that 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).
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 seeing 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!😂
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 😂 ). 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!
I’ll leave it there as you’ll learn the most about me by reading my blog posts and following my Instagram – maybe I’ll see you soon! 😉😗
