Hello, world! I'm "ThunderingTyphoons!", or "Jamie", as people in real life tend to call me (when they're being nice) and I'm a 23 year-old student from Hampshire in the United Kingdom, with family roots in the Liverpool and Cardiff areas. I'm a French and Philosophy undergraduate at the University of Sheffield. Travelling is one of the joys of my life, which is why I love writing for Wikivoyage. As of 15 January 2017, I've been on here four whole years, mostly to avoid studying French and philosophy!

My work on Wikivoyage[edit]

I prefer to work on destination articles related to the United Kingdom and France, though I also patrol recent changes and my watchlist. Pages I have created (bold) and / or have contributed extensively to:

  • Visiting the remains of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, for reflection and mourning

Countries I have been to[edit]

I have been very lucky so far in my life to have done a lot of travelling. I have set foot in 22 countries around the world, mainly in Europe, though I have also visited Asia and Oceania and done my fair share of Atlantic islands:

All counties I have set foot in rather than simply driven through, and not nearly as exciting a list as 'how many U.S. states I've set foot in':
