My name is Joe Dodkins. I am a 22 year old university student studying modern history at the University of East Anglia, England. Whilst history is my chosen discipline of study, creative writing is my passion - along with travel, of course! Upon finishing my years at college, I took off around the world on my own for my first set of travels. Ever since I have been hooked. Keeping detailed journals of all my adventures, I hope to one day become a professional writer - if I can make the cut! In my spare time, I'm a rugby player, keen gym-goer and appreciate health and environmentalism.
It is a pleasure to welcome another newcomer to our travel writing contests. The third entry in the June Travel Stories Competition is from Joe Dodkins. Read and enjoy his travel story Travelling: Mishaps and All here.
