Hey y’all!

I’m Paige. I’m from Alabama, but I’ve been living in Atlanta for the past few years.

I started this blog in 2013 when I first studied abroad in the little town of Harlaxton, England. That gave way to blogging about another study abroad in Galway, Ireland, and that has turned into a more continually, day-to-day blogging.

I think it’s pretty obvious that my title, Paige Minds The Gap, comes from the London Underground and that fact that I was to be living in England for four months when I first studied abroad. It’s cute and catchy, and as all symbols do, it ended up taking on more meaning that just being about where I was living. “Mind the gap” was the most important lesson I learned from traveling. It’s more than just the gap between the train and the platform. There’s always going to be a gap: between home and where you’re traveling; between your culture and another culture; between you and other people; between who you were and who you are becoming. Traveling teaches you to be aware and to be mindful of these things, and that’s one of my favorite parts about traveling.

I write for a lot of different online publications about travel, fashion, general reporting on stuff, and who knows what else that comes along!

All the stuff I like, (castles, bears, shoes, castles, bears, Ireland, castles), you’ll figure out from my posts. So climb aboard, but please mind the gap, and let’s see where life takes us.

  1. I have sure enjoyed reading your blog again. I thought you had stopped it for awhile but really enjoyed going back to it again. It was especially exciting to read about the Shenanigans of both my grands and will continue to go back to it from time to time. Love you.


  2. “Mind the Gap” – oh, yes, how many times did I hear that!? I love your spin on it – so many gaps of which we should be mindful.

    I look forward to poking around your blog a bit.


  3. Hello Paige. Thanks so much for giving me a Liebster Award a while back and for setting some great questions.
