About Aspire to Amble

About Kia Marie Hunt, creator of Aspire to Amble

I’m Kia: writer, illustrator, linguist, culture enthusiast, all-round creative, and lover of travel. I recently graduated (as Student of the Year!) in B.A. Hispanic Studies from the University of Birmingham.

During my degree I spent the most marvellous year abroad in South America (Uruguay and Brazil)! I love to travel and experience different cultures.

As well as travel and culture, another of my biggest passions is language. Connecting with people while I travel by communicating with them in their native language is one of my favourite experiences. At the moment, I study Spanish, Portuguese, and a little Italian, but in the future, I hope to learn Polish, Russian, and British Sign Language too!

I’m also a self-taught artist and illustrator, I enjoy creating illustrations and art-journal spreads that are inspired by my various adventures. I like to think of my artwork as a unique language, one that only I can use and interpret.

What is Aspire to Amble?

Aspire to Amble is a blog where I combine my passions for travel, foreign languages and cultures, art and illustration, food, photography, and writing to create blog content that inspires creativity and adventure.

Freelance Writing Work:

I work part time as a freelance content writer for various online and in-print publications. Here is a list of places where you can find examples of my published work, happy reading!

Hi Kia! I’ve really enjoyed reading your year abroad articles, and have nominated you for a Liebster award – here’s the link to the logistics/ questions etc should you choose to accept 🙂 https://lagrenouilleanglaise.wordpress.com/2016/07/06/liebster-award/

Hi Rosie, thank you so much for your lovely comment, I’m so glad you discovered my blog as it allowed me to discover yours! I would love to take part in the Liebster award, thank you so much for nominating me! 🙂 Is there a time limit on this or would I be able to schedule the post for a couple of weeks time? 🙂

It’s been really interesting reading all about your time in South America – especially as most year abroad posts I see are Europe-centred! No time limit whatsoever, it took me a couple of weeks to get round to posting mine! Look forward to reading your post in due course 🙂
