50+ easy ways to save up to £10k for travel free ebook, solo female adventure travel

Five 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. Five years later, I’m still travelling and this nomadic life has become everything to me.


After five years of backpacking solo across four 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 and happiness in the strangest places. I’ve lived all over the world, in places such as Australia, Thailand and even Germany. Experiencing life as an expat and creating an expat community of over 200 people. This year I’m planning some of my biggest travels yet and can’t wait to bring you along!

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. I’ve helped everyone, from those fresh from school to retirees, to plan their world trips and have the adventure of a lifetime.
