I have always loved travelling and when I was younger I was lucky enough to take many trips to mainland Europe, but also spend a lot of time travelling around the UK. While my friends with slightly more affluent parents jetted off to places like Canada and Australia, I saw a lot of England, Wales and parts of Scotland. Growing up spending so much time 'staycationing' in my own country made me into a very proud Anglophile. I love climbing up castles, chips and ice-cream in pretty seaside villages, walks in the countryside and in general exploring what makes Great Britain great.
As a travel blogger it is pretty much expected of me to be writing about a new country every week and showing off all the places I've been to, but the truth is I haven't been to many places out of the UK because I never had the opportunity until I got my job after university. I'm lucky enough now that I'm able to fly out of the UK every now and then, but I do appreciate this isn't the same for everyone, hence me spending a lot of time developing a staycationing guide on my blog that gives people travel inspiration whether they are wanting to fly as far as Thailand or simply drive an hour in the car on a sunny day in England.
This year alone I've visited a lot of places in the UK that I hadn't visited before such as Guildford, Stratford upon Avon, Northumbria and Newcastle and I'm sure by the end of this year that list would have doubled, if not tripled. I learnt so many great things about British literature, history and even seen a lot of truly wonderful British scenery. My aim on my blog is to make travel accessible to all and show that you don't have to travel miles to have a relax and have a new change of scene. I hope you enjoy coming on the journey with me.
Do you like staycations?
