About the blog

Laptop and notepad

On the Luce aims to inspire independent travellers to make the most of their travel time. It combines beautiful photography and travel stories 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 – 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. Find some of my favourite posts on my Best of page.

Site policies
