About me: 13 Weeks Travel
Hello beautiful people, welcome to 13 Weeks Travel. I’m Bolupe, the Editor and Founder of 13 Weeks Travel.
About Me: 13 Weeks Travel : Brief Background.
I started my adult life as a project Architect in the construction world. It wasn’t difficult to be identified as the Architect leading the projects, I was young, petite and very disciplined. I love designing, building and creating spaces from scratch and I also enjoyed travelling to different countries to study their architecture. It was the dream job! Then, we had the recession in 2008 and the projects stopped coming in.
My favourite project as an architect was designing a school for the blind, as a result of creating and designing a school, I decided to train as a teacher in the UK and I started working full time as a primary school teacher in 2010.
I threw myself to the hard-work of nurturing new minds and helping the little ones grow but I needed something else to distract me during the school holidays. So, I began to travel every school holiday which in total is 13 Weeks in the UK hence the name of my brand – 13 Week Travel.
Travelling was my way to switch off completely during the school holidays. When I had my children, I continued to travel with them because I believe in the science behind how holidays make your child happier and smarter.
