About the blog

Laptop and notepad

On the Luce aims to inspire independent travellers to make the most of their travel time. The blog combines beautiful photography and stories from my travels with all the useful details that you need to make the trip a reality. I’ve been travelling for over 25 years so have plenty of tips, stories and photos to share – whether that’s from the UK, Europe and around the world. I’d describe my travel style as ‘budget-luxe’, meaning I like to make the most of my money but throw in a few luxury touches where I can.

Regular features on the site include Travel tales (places I’ve been and things I’ve seen), Tips and guides (my best tips and advice from the road), In pictures (photos that tell a story) and Reviewed (my favourite accommodation and gear for high quality on a budget). Find some of my favourite posts on my Best of page.

Site policies

Trips featured on On the Luce are based on my own travel experiences. The majority are planned, booked and paid for by me. Where I accept the occasional discount or sponsorship from a tourist board or travel company these will be clearly marked and I promise I’ll still give you my honest opinion.

The site contains some affiliate links, where I where I’ll get a small commission at no extra cost to you, but I’ll only recommend products or sites which I genuinely recommend and use myself.
