Where I’ve been

Countries visited by On the Luce

Other than childhood trips across the Channel to France, I first started travelling at 18 when a trip to New York sparked off a new love of exploring the world – and I haven’t stopped since. Here’s where I’ve visited up to now, linked to posts where I have them. I’ve visited 52 countries so far, but tend to mix up visits to new spots with old favourites.

Coming up: Normally this is where I’d preview any upcoming trips I have planned, but as we all know in 2022 there’s no such thing as concrete plans, so anything could happen!
