Bio

Not everyone leaves home with a backpack and an adventurous spirit, planning to spend over 10 years on end living everywhere, and nowhere, all at once. Sometimes…a decade of vagabonding just happens. At least it does for those, like me, whose intense passion in life is to travel and discover the world, inch by inch and culture by culture.

Long-term travelling is not just an adventure, a sojourn from the everyday life or a simple diversion from routine. It’s an intensely different lifestyle choice. The unpredictability of every single day, and the personal freedom gifted, are long-term travel’s most endearing aspects. These are the things I cherish most.

There are countless ways to turn a travel dream into reality. I’ve tried several of them! I worked as a tour guide in South America, Africa and Australia, travelled off my savings through Northern Africa and the Middle East (in a certain now-famous Land Rover) and supported myself through writing whilst motorbiking from Germany to Australia for several years.

Because when it comes to realizing a seemingly unreachable dream…where there’s a will there is always a way.

    Hi Laura,

    I really enjoyed reading some of your blogs! So much so that I was wondering if you would want to chat to us about writing a blog for our website once in a while? If you are interested at all please send an email to me. Look forward to hearing from you. Take care, Danielle

    • Hi Dani,

      Thank you for stopping by my ‘home of travel ramblings’ 🙂
      Oh that sounds like a lovely proposition; I shall scour your blog now to see what it’s all about. I’ll send you an email in a bit. Cheers from me, L 🙂

    Hello Laura,

    I like your blog, which I found through the Wanderlust website. I write for Wanderlust magazine and its website, as well as Sailing Today magazine. I am editor of the Itinerant Writers Club. Next month we will be launching an online magazine for travel writers, and I’m looking for contributors. Here’s the blurb:

    New literary travel magazine, ‘The Itinerant’, is open for submissions from new and established writers, photographers and artists. The online magazine will have a literary slant, so introspective, opinion and mood pieces will have a better chance of selection than the top-10-places-to-lose-your-knickers kind of thing seen elsewhere. We will publish writing that is fresh, incisive, with its own voice. We are looking for non-fiction, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, fiction, features, notes, poems, photos, drawings, in short anything that is thought-provoking and travel related.

    Deadline Saturday 31st May

    If you would like to become a contributor please email your submission.

    Writers
    I will consider submissions up to 1000 words in length. It does not matter if your piece is published elsewhere as long as you have ownership. Where appropriate I will link to the original piece and your blog.
    Please submit one image and a mini bio of up to 100 words along with any social media links.

    Photos/sketches/art
    Please submit a maximum of two pieces, and attach around 100 words about the image.
    Include a mini bio of up to 100 words along with social media links.

    No fees, I’m afraid, as this is a non-commercial venture designed to encourage and showcase good writing.

    Best wishes,

    Liz
