Hey, I’m Michelle
Lover of pets. Disney fanatic. Cocktail drinker. Crime-doc watcher. Long-term budget traveller.
These are the 5 things that sum me up more than anything.
I always knew I didn’t want to spend my entire life in the UK and always dreamt of visiting far off places. I frequented short trips and weekend getaways for a few years before diving right in – leaving on a 1 year trip around the world through Asia & Australia.
That’s where it all began. Since 2015 my life has been nothing but travel. Working in each destination in order to afford to move to the next place. I have lived and worked in 4 countries and visited 18 more during these years of being abroad. I always try to take part in soft-adventures activities and music festivals in each destination. After a few years of travelling solo I started dating my Canadian boyfriend who has since joined me on all of the adventures (you’ll see Chris in a TON of my pics).
If I had to describe my travel style, I’d call myself a budget long-termer. All of my trips away from home have been a minimum of 1-2 years and I somehow always stick to my chosen budget.
As someone who would rather backpack and travel slowly around the world I want to show people you don’t need to be rich to make it happen! There are plenty of ways to travel for a long time while still sticking to a reasonable budget. I’ll gradually teach you about free travel, travelling cheaply and ways to extend your travel without breaking the bank!
Chris & I are always looking for the next fun thing to do and the next place to visit – it’s always on our minds. I’ve experienced the great, the weird and the unfortunate of travel & am now sharing these with all of you.
So stick with me & get ready to plan your own trip!
