  1. Dear Kelly,

    Apologies for posting such a long message on your blog, I couldn’t find a contact email address!

    I am a current postgraduate student at Swansea University in the UK undertaking research for my thesis which is about the experiences of long-term travellers.

    I have enjoyed reading excerpts of your blog (if only I had time to read it all!) and I am really keen to use it in my research. I am particularly interested in individual’s motivations for travel, new experiences and ideas of ‘home’. If you agree to let me use your blog as part of this research your identity is guaranteed to be kept strictly confidential and anonymous. I am purely interested in undertaking a content analysis of the textual narrative that you have presented in the blog in order to draw out meaning and deeper understandings, and of course you are more than welcome to view the research findings.

    I would really appreciate your informed consent and assistance to go ahead to use your blog. (There is debate as to whether blogs are private/public so I have chosen to take the ethical approach and ask!)

    Thank you very much for your time,
    I look forward to hearing from you. (Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me)

    Kind regards and happy travelling!
    Natalia 480521@swansea.ac.uk (MA Human Geography postgraduate student at Swansea University)
