About

Hey I’m Katie, a 20-something budget savvy travel blogger based in Milton Keynes

This blog of mine began in 2014 as a bit of a mish-mash project, and has since evolved into a place where I can share my love for all things travel, life and more.

Everything I do is as budget savvy as possible – so whether you’re into booking cheap weekends away, fitting as many holidays around your job as you can, or just generally love getting as much as possible for your money whilst you travel – then this is the place for you to find a relatable read. 

Whilst you’re here, don’t forget to follow my adventures on YouTube and Instagram!

More about Katie

I’ve spent my whole life living in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, which is where I currently share my second home with my fiancé Darryl and cat Luna.

As of October 2019 I work locally in public relations as an Account Manager, which follows a background of working in marketing and social media roles.

In my spare time (what’s left of it!) I spend every spare moment searching for cheap flights, creating trip itineraries, planning our 2021 wedding and watching the latest videos from my favourite travel vloggers.

Fun facts? I’ve been travelling since I was in a baby grow, so far I’ve visited 31 countries, and as of 1 January 2020 I am vegetarian!

FAQ

What camera do you use? I use a Canon M50. I upgraded to this from an Olympus Pen E-PL7 and love it!

What’s your favourite beach destination? This is so hard to pick, but I’d have to say the Whitsunday Islands in Australia. I’ve never seen such fine, white sand in my life. Can’t beat a bit of Mexico either!

What’s your favourite city? It’s a really tough call between New York City and Barcelona. Both very different, I know!

What one country took your breath away? Iceland every time!

What’s your favourite cuisine? I love Mexican, Indian and Turkish food the most. I can’t possibly pick just one.

What’s your favourite thing about blogging? I’ve always loved writing, so writing about my love of travel is something I enjoy so much. I also love taking photos and that’s a huge part of blogging!

Do you get paid to blog? At this point in time, no! I get a few gifted items but the only money I make from this website is from the ads and affiliate links.

How do you travel so much? I have a good amount of annual leave at work and I plan it VERY carefully to make sure I get as much out of it as possible. You can always fit little trips into weekends too. I wrote more on this here!

Who takes your photos? Me! Unless I’m in them – then my fiancé Darryl takes them.
