Hellooooo, I’m Tinyboots, or Sarah!
Why Tinyboots? Well I’m 5’1 and have small feet, so yeah, makes sense now right?! I’m from Ireland and put this blog together about two years ago because I love gallivanting about with camera in hand and I wanted somewhere to share my photos and experiences.
Do you want to know more about me?
I read this thing about our perception of ourselves before. How we’re not who we think we are. Who I think I am, mightn’t be what others see in me. I found it really interesting and now the thoughts of telling you about me seems really weird. Nevertheless, telling you who I think I am is the only option I’ve got. I’ll start with the facts!
I like to travel and spend time outside. I spent my entire child hood outside. The summers were spent running through the fields and wrecking the neighbouring Farmers bales by climbing all over them and rolling them around – he hated us! Oh, and we had our family trips through the over grown bog looking for newts and jumping bog holes. Yep, I spent a lot of time outdoors. I also was lucky enough to go on holidays abroad every year.
In my teens I was off getting into trouble on the weekends, but other than that I was inside playing computer games or binge watching the OC. It wasn’t until my early twenties that I realised how much I missed doing stuff outdoors, so me and my friends started road tripping around the country whenever we got the chance.
Me and me two pals there at Powerscourt waterfall.
This was after we hiked up some of the Storr in Scotland
I’m 26. I have been a qualified scientist for 4 years. I am yet to use my degree in any way though! I studied Earth and Ocean Science and Zoology – both are topics I’m hugely passionate about. I love the planet, or whatever’s left of it, and love each and every living thing on it. I won’t even squish a wasp. Who am I to stop him on his journey through life?! I’ve also been using this blog to try and educate people on small things they can do to reduce their impact on the environment. I think we can all make changes to be better. Why not take a look?
I have severe health anxiety. It has taken over quite a bit of the last 5 years of my life, but I’m working hard to stop it from taking over the next 5. There’s a lot I wana do in my life and letting anxiety stop it from happening just isn’t an option anymore!
My favourite things include:
Going on adventures
Family / friend time
My dogs – especially my perfectly pathetic lapdog Belle
All I want to do in my spare time is jump in the car with my favourite people and drive aimlessly around, stopping wherever takes our fancy, taking pictures along the way. I dream of this becoming more of a regular occurrence. I would absolutely love to travel Europe some day in a van (so far I’ve just done Scotland), and would love to road trip the US too. Just as much of the world as I can really, but for now, so happy to see every corner of Ireland.
I want to see the world so badly but I have a ridiculously extreme, irrational fear of flying too. It has kept me out of the sky since I was 16. I hope I can get over this fear someday. – UPDATE: I finally did it!! In March 2019 I took my first flight in 9 years. It was an experience. So glad I’m on my way to over coming my fear. I put together a post on some tips for those afraid of flying – if you’re afraid too, it might help!
Got a really good day for the Giants Causeway
I hope you feel like you know me a bit better! If you decide to subscribe to my blog, you’ll see some advice, my travels, my opinions as well as a whole lot of photos. I’d love for you to follow along! If you don’t feel like you know me better, I did the “The Blogger ‘Get To Know Me’ Tag!” why not give it a read.
Hope you enjoy!
