My name is Lou (Louise if I am in trouble). The main thing you should know about me is that I not only adore, but I live for travel. The rush of endorphins that I receive when I leave the strange flying room filled with 200 strangers compressed farts and step out in a new world is what gets me through each day. The possibility of experiencing a new culture or seeing something that I know I would never have the opportunity to see at home is invaluable to me and I feel that seeing the world has made me into the person I am today. From standing in a field with a kangaroo only meters away to a group of heterosexual males holding hands and being affectionate with one another because that is ‘normal’ for them; I believe that absorbing ones self into a different way of life is the best way to really live.
I have been very fortunate in that I have managed to see such a large part of the world already and have ticked a lot of countries off of my ‘list’, I have traveled for business, for luxury pleasure and have also traveled solo around south east Asia with nothing but a backpack. I worked in the travel industry for six years and am full of useful travel hints and tips from where to book your trip, where to go, what to pack and what to do when you are there. I recently read somewhere that the average person spends 7% of their time on holiday, so I think its important to fill this with the best experiences that are possible, but I cannot promise I wont try to convince you to stretch that 7% a lot higher! I intend to share many of my stories and tips with my readers so your travel experiences will be superb. Enjoy 🙂
