About Us

Who am I?

My name is Laura and I am a travel fanatic. I am a passionate worldwide traveller who loves experiencing new places and meeting new people. I love sharing my professional knowledge with other travel lovers and helping them plan their dream travel experiences.

I can’t help but recognise the irony as I continue my ever-evolving journey as a travel expert, you see I am blessed to have been born into a travelling family; an English mother and an Australian father, travel was a way of life from a very young age. However, believe it or not for a large number of years I declared to my nearest and dearest that I never wanted to travel. but the jokes on me – here we are 58 countries later, 17 years working in the travel industry and now my main goal in life is to visit a new country each and every year! Yes, even during Covid!

I still can’t really explain what changed and at what point travel became my way of life but what I can say is I wouldn’t change it for the world, I believe travel is one of life’s greatest gifts and I feel most alive when I am immersed in a new destination, planning the next adventure, sharing my knowledge and stories, meeting new people abroad and really anything and everything travel related.

My Experience

I am extremely blessed to have spent 14 years recent working for one of the world’s largest travel agencies with the majority of that time being spent in their wholesale division. It is this role where I had the privilege of educating and escorting front line agents around the world to experience some of the world’s most exciting destinations first hand. As a result I am lucky enough to now have visited 58 countries and 30% of these I have been to more than once! From these amazing experiences a huge passion for exploring the world was born alongside a comprehensive knowledge base. I believe my purpose in the world is to share this passion & knowledge and through that inspire fellow travellers. Girl Made for Travel is here to arm the everyday traveller with the knowledge and confidence to effortlessly plan their own memorable adventure.

Up until a few years back I was a wholesale travel consultant and years of working alongside and educating retail travel agents assisted me in learning all sorts of things about this wonderful world. I have decided to take this knowledge and develop simple tools to help fellow travellers in the often dreaded planning process. I hope through this I can continue to inspire & educate others but mostly empower my customers with the knowledge they need to personally plan their dream adventure whilst still having the support and input of a professional.

I have built this company to share my knowledge and passion for all things travel with you whether it is to develop a passion visit a new destination, a ready made travel guide you can use and still maintain control of your booking or for insider tips for a trip already planned. My hopes and dreams for this is to hear how it has contributed to a successful trip so please share your feedback, photos and stories with me!

Over the last decade as people discovered I worked in the travel industry the question most frequently asked was “so where should I go in ….. country?” quickly followed by “and what should I do there?” From this delightful exchange of conversation Girl Made for Travel was born. Following these questions was a passionate and excitement filled exchange with me rattling off lists all the amazing things I had experienced in the destination along with an equally excited response from the questioner as their travel dream slowly began to take more shape. Instead of writing another email from scratch I started to send out travel guides following these conversations where I kept records of all my insider tips for the destination we were discussing.
