About Me


Hello, I’m Ellie. I’m 32 years old and from England!

I spent all of my 20’s travelling and living around the world, and when I wasn’t doing that, I was working to save money to do it!

I have been to 65+ countries, all 7 continents and around the world a few times (here’s where I’ve been)! I’ve travelled most of the world as a backpacker and solo, so I have picked up a lot of good travel tips and ways to travel along the way which I love to share on here!

In 2018, after working hard on this blog for a few years, I took the leap to quit my job in London where I’d been living for 2.5 years and leave my flat to travel full time and work on my blog full time, and what an amazing decision that was!

I spent most of the 2 years in Asia because I have a soft spot for the Eastern side of the world including places that other people don’t want to travel to, or don’t think it’s worth travelling to! Hey Saudi Arabia!

Covid, of course, put a stop to most of my travels in 2020, but because I was nomadic at the time, I was lucky enough to spend 4 months in lockdown on the paradise island of Gili T in Indonesia, and 3 months in the very cool city of Istanbul!

I did eventually come back to the UK in 2021, I lived in Cardiff for a while before moving to Manchester and getting married. I now live in Manchester (very ideally located near the Airport!) with my husband and 3 stepsons.

You’ll find content on my blog from all over the world whether you need some wanderlust or you’re planning a trip!

You’ll also find lots of UK content, especially new and fresh UK content, as that is my focus right now! Hello UK Staycations!

As well as being a content creator, I run group tours. I managed to run my first 2 tours to India just before Covid at the start of 2020 before the rest got cancelled!

In 2022, I co-ran 3 retreats for Retreats for Muslim Women and a tour to Antarctica!

Group Tours in 2023 include Morocco, Iceland and Pakistan. Click here to see what’s available! I want to offer you the chance to travel the world with a like-minded group of women in a safe, but exciting and authentic way!
