about gemma


Welcome to eleven degrees latitude, documenting my travels as a brand-new baby graduate!

Why eleven degrees latitude? This is where I’ll be based for the next six months in Coimbatore, India for a teaching placement with the British Council and where most of my blogs will cover, with weekend trips around Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Plus I thought it sounded pretty slick.

Travelling more long-term has always been a goal of mine and now that I’ve graduated, I have the time and the crippling student debt to allow me to (turns out you can’t avoid the repayments by travelling abroad, trust me I’ve looked).

Follow my  Indian Summer, South East Asian Winter and Korean Spring!
