What made you become a travel blogger?

I have always had a passion for travel ever since I was a child. I looked forward to our annual family holiday more than I looked forward to Christmas, even if it was just camping in the West Counties of England (in the rain)!. I guess you could say I fell into a career of travel. I visited a career adviser when I finished school who put me in touch with a local travel agents who eventually gave me my first travel job. From then I have been travelling…infact every penny I have earnt has been spent on travel. When I relocated to the Czech Republic I found it incredibly hard to find an English speaking travel role, so I decided to start a blog and become a full time travel blogger. Anyone can set up a blog its very easy! But it takes time, perseverance and a lot of tears to do it professionally and you learn something new every day.

Who funds your travels?

Since moving to the Czech Republic I have essentially become self-employed. My background in marketing has allowed me to gain a few steady freelance writing jobs that pay for my trips and being self-employed means I can travel as and when I wish! I also have an amazing husband who also funds our larger trips. I always choose the destination and present him with a budget excel sheet of costs. I hope one day that my writing and blog will further aid my travels through funding but it takes a lot of hard work to get there.

Who do you travel with?

Most of the time (90%) I travel with my husband however occasionally especially for work trips or visits home I travel alone. I took my first real solo trip (away from home) in 2012 to Croatia on a work trip sailing around the islands in Croatia. Now our son has been born, I am looking forward to traveling more as a family and introducing him to our exciting world!

Where have you travelled to?

Currently I am at 28 countries although it changes frequently…so far it includes many countries in Europe, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Vietnam, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, St Lucia, Jamaica and the United States of America.

I want to work with you, how can I do that?

Please visit my Work With Me page for all the information on how you can work with me.

Do you earn money from your blog?

Yes, mostly by collaborating with brands and travel companies on campaigns which involve creating sponsored content for my blog and social channels. I also make some money from affiliate networks and advertising. 

What camera do you use?

Currently I am using the Lumix/Panasonic GX8 and my Huawei P30 Pro Mobile to take photos for my travel blog and social media. 

Why do you post so infrequently?

I’ll be 100% honest here and tell you that I am a super lazy person when it comes to writing. In fact, I’m pretty sure if there was a competition on procrastinating, I would win hands down. Also, keeping a tiny human alive is a demanding job – so sorry – temporarily things will be on the quieter side!
