I’ve stayed in down and (not always) dirty hostels and five-star hotels; flown with my knees up to my chin in long-haul economy and slept out in full in business class. I’ve saved to eat Michelin starred food on the other side of the world and cooked up a storm in an Air BnB kitchen. I can’t say I’m a bargain traveller but I’m sure as hell not one for constant opulence. I’ve struggled to figure out where I fit in the travel blogging space and what it is that I can share with readers that is always authentic to how I actually vacation, but now I’m pretty sure I’ve nailed it.

Flexible luxury

 Grab a cheap Ryanair flight so I can stay in a nice hotel

Take a free walking tour so I can afford a great dinner

Borrow hiking boots from a friend so I can invest in a decent suitcase I’ll use for years

I’m not here to pretend that I can afford to splash cash I don’t have on luxury travel experiences, but what I am really good at is finding a balance. I know how I want to holiday so I plan, compromise and prioritise to get the experiences that are right for me. Travel isn’t an endurance test and we all deserve a bit of luxury; let’s just do it whilst still be able to afford our extortionate London rent, yeah?!


I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing brands and am always up for collaborating on something new! For more information, check out my contact page.
