About Lucy

stanton-feat

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 hostels, overnight buses and instant noodles. Today my travels come with a touch of luxury – proper beds, internals flights and a glass of wine included. Join me as I share my travel tales, tips and photos – and if you have a travel question, drop me a message at lucydodsworth@yahoo.com or on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
