Hi, I'm zoe

Backpacking traveller, adventure seeker, writer. Currently on a dream trip through Central Asia visiting Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan!

I’ve always loved to travel. From countryside or seaside day trips in the UK to fast-paced city breaks and idyllic weeks on tropical beaches. 

So, in 2021, I pressed pause on my corporate writing job to backpack around the world. A journey that is documented through the in-depth, honest and practical travel guides I write as a travel blogger.

So whether you’re looking for something near or far, long haul or hometown, you can find your inspiration here. There’s no adventure too big or small…
