I’m Lucy (hence the dodgy loose/Luce pun), a freelance editor and designer from Cheltenham in the UK with a passion for travel. Back in 2011, I gave up the day job after 10 years in London to develop a more flexible lifestyle. I did the whole ‘give up everything and travel for years’ backpacking trip in my 20s, but now with a business, house, family and friends, I’m trying to bring them all together. So I mix up travel and home life – with trips ranging from weekends in the UK and Europe to more far-flung exotic trips.
I still travel on a budget, but have done my share of dorms, overnight buses and instant noodles. Today my travels come with a touch of luxury – proper beds, internals flights and a good glass of wine included. Please join me as I share my travel tales, tips and photos – and if you’ve got a travel question, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
My favourite travel blogs
I’m something of an obsessive travel blog reader (especially when I’m supposed to be doing something useful) but have a few favourites that I keep coming back to:
- Fellow part-time travellers combining travel and everyday life: Eff It I’m on Holiday, Continental Breakfast, Backpacks & Bunkbeds, Weekend Candy and Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes.
- Female travellers exploring the world: Alex in Wanderland, This Battered Suitcase, Never Ending Footsteps, Pack Your Passport, Beyond Blighty and Legal Nomads.
- Giving me hope that it is possible to combine marriage, kids and other grown up exploits with travel and adventure: Need Another Holiday, The Travel Hack and Mummy Travels.
- And finally some lovely (and talented) bloggers I’ve got to know since starting this site: Travel with Kat, The Travelbunny, Restless Jo, abitofculture, Grown Up Gap Year and Vagabond Baker.
