About Me

Hi Everyone!

My name is Victoria, I’m 23 years old and I’m based in the UK.  I am a Languages Student currently in my fourth and final year at University but when I’m not busy studying, you’ll find me planning my next adventure!
I started Dovaston’s Diaries in 2013 when I moved abroad to Germany, where I worked for a year as an English Language Assistant. My blog became a way to let friends and family back home know how I was getting on and also as a way to keep track of all the new experiences I was faced with. Since then, and due to my love of travel, it has evolved into a kind of travel journal and place for me to share my own tips and travel related stories with you lovely readers!


I’ve traveled throughout my whole life, mostly within Europe but occasionally further afield, and still have multiple places to cross off my (ever-growing) Travel Bucket List!

So if you want to find out more about my travel related stories or if you just want to see what these places have in store for you, then stay tuned and I’ll let you into my world. Follow the blog or check out my Instagram to keep up with my travels.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog. Hopefully it will help to inspire you to broaden your horizons and head off of the beaten track.
