About Me


Who am i??

I’m Ellie. I’m 28 and I’m from England.

Where am i?

I live in London at the moment and have done since Feb 2016.

When I’m not working I’m trying to explore as much of London as I can as well as taking advantage of Europe being on the doorstep.

What do I love??

Going somewhere new is my favourite thing to do, whether it’s a new Country, a new City or even just a new street!

I also love booking flights, sunsets, brunch, positive quotes, yoga, spring, sunshine, autumn, christmas, cute cafes, maps and travel in general!

I pretty much live, dream and breathe travel, adventure and faraway places!

What have i done??

In 2010 I started my travelling adventures and never looked back. Since then I have:

Worked at a summer camp in the USA for 3 months and travelled for a month afterwards.

Travelled, lived and worked in Australia for 2 years.

Backpacked South East Asia Solo for 5 months.

Backpacked South America Solo for 3 Months.

Travelled Central/Eastern Europe Solo for 1 Month.

Backpacked the Middle East Solo for 1 Month.

Travelled South East Asia {again} for 3 Months.

Moved to London.

Worked a full time job whilst seeing as much of Europe & the UK as I can on weekends and annual leave!

Why do I have this blog??

I created my blog for 2 reasons! 1- to document my travels for myself and 2- to help provide YOU with the information, motivation and inspiration to travel the world too!

Do I blog full time?

No I don’t. I have a full time job which is completely un-travel, blog or social media related and I enjoy it. This blog is becoming more and more of a part time job in the evenings and weekends though. It’s a lot of work but I love it!

How can I help you??

One thing I’ve learnt is that not everyone is designed to travel in the same way but luckily I like to travel in different ways, so whether you’re interested in moving to the other side of the world on a working holiday visa or you’re looking to do a big backpacking trip on a budget or perhaps you’re looking for a weekend trip closer to home with a few luxuries, I have stories and blog posts that can help you out with all of that!

How is my blog different??

I like Countries and Cities that are popular but I also like to visit lesser known places, places that are up and coming and slightly off the tourist radar.


I want to give you stories and make you dream about faraway places like I do but I also want to give you the FACTS! How much stuff costs, how to get from place to place, if I fully enjoyed the destination or not, where to visit and where to not bother visiting!

I think that pretty much sums it up!

I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Travels! x
