While I’m generally a bit of a nomad, I have lived the expat life from time to time. Several years ago I lived in Bali where I eventually found a job making event videos, and I once lived in Portugal where I worked a season working in bars and restaurants. Recently, I submitted my top [...]
Whether it is a month’s inter-railing around Europe or a world-wide trip for two years, you will need to pack a fairly hefty case or back pack to make your way from country to country. It can be difficult to decide what you should take and what to leave behind, especially if you don’t intend [...]
I don’t know about you, but I always feel better with a tan. That’s why I love sunny beach holidays so much because there’s nothing better than the feeling of bronzed skin, sun-bleached hair and the sand between my toes! I’ve spent most of this year in hot, sunny places such as Australia, Cambodia, Israel, [...]
In many ways the iPad can be the perfect travel companion. It doesn’t take up as much room as a laptop, and yet it isn’t as small and fiddly as a phone. If you’re going on shorter trips or you’re traveling for a while but don’t need the full functionality of a laptop, then the [...]

When traveling abroad it’s important I look after my money. Without money, I can’t travel! In order to make my funds last longer I have to make sure I’m not throwing money down the drain on things like international transaction fees.

My iPhone 5 is one of the items in my carry-on bag that I just couldn’t live without. I use it to take beautiful photos, update my social media accounts, check my emails, make notes, communicate with people back home, organize my trips and even book my future travels. Sometimes it has even saved me [...]
Staying in shape while traveling isn’t always easy. On the one hand I find myself doing more calorie-burning activities such as walking tours, hiking through mountains and abseiling down rock faces. On the the other hand I find myself eating far more food, and drinking a lot more beer than usual. With my lifestyle, I [...]
Whilst many of us enjoy road trips both at home and abroad, this most exciting of ways to experience the diverse countryside often turns out to be something of a hit-and-miss affair. An otherwise successful road trip with economy car hire in place and the open road beckoning can be made or broken by the [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
