About Absolutely Lucy

Award-winning travel blogger
who is taking on the world one country at a time.


This is the blog for the twenty-something traveller who has spent far too long sitting in a dreary office daydreaming of sunshine-filled beaches, jungle adventures and endless waterfalls. Three years ago, I was in exactly the same spot stuck in a job and a nine-year relationship that didn’t appreciate me. Fuelled by my incessant wanderlust, I decided enough was enough – it was time to escape everything I knew and see the world. I booked a year-long trip around Asia, Australia and New Zealand, ended my relationship and quit my job. Three years later, I’m still travelling and this nomadic life has become everything to me.

After three years of backpacking solo across three continents and taking the time to get to know myself, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I’ve got a notebook full of stories to tell and I’ve found love in the strangest places – now I’m ready to take on my next big adventure with someone very special. While solo travel will always be what ignited my passion for travelling – it’s time to try something new.

I know not everyone has the luxury of doing what I did, so I’m all about finding ways to travel that will fit in with your life – whether that means taking a year out to backpack across the world, two week summer holidays or a cheeky weekend away. It could be a four-day festival in the UK, or a three-month trip to Thailand, I write about it all and how to make your travel dreams a reality to suit your budget.
