Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Laura and I am a travel addict 🙂

I can’t help but recognise the irony as I begin my latest travel related journey online, 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 number of years I declared to my parents that I never wanted to travel but the jokes on me – here we are 52 countries later, 12 years as a travel professional and now my main goal in life is to visit a new country each and every year!

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.

Up until a few years back I was a wholesale travel consultant (now I work in Travel Product Procurement) and years of working alongside and educating retail consultants assisted me in learning all sorts of things about this wonderful world and now that I can’t talk travel all day every day I have decided to write about it instead in the hope that I can continue to inspire and educate fellow travelers.

I have built this space to share my knowledge and passion for all things travel with you whether it is to develop a passion within you to visit a new destination 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!

Yours in travel,
