About my blog

For curious minds and wandering feet wherever they may be.

I write my blog from my base in Manchester and class myself as and Outdoor and Travel blogger. I cover all things from camping and hiking to museums and exploring cities abroad. My strapline is "for curious minds and wandering feet wherever they may be" and I feel this encapulates the essence of my blog.

In addition to this, there are undertones of a couple traveling on a budget both in the UK and overseas. How to make the most of visits on foot and make your money stretch further with museum passes and clever planning.

About me

I am an outdoorsey city dweller, living and working in Manchester, UK. My previous roles have included B2B marketing, Office Management, copywriting, social media strategy and even teaching construction!

Also, I'm a mindset coach, tech ninja and geek. I'm always on the look out for something new to learn and experience whether it be mentally or physically. I love nothing more than taking an adventure or learning something new. I am currently learning Dutch and to play the Ukulele.

My idea of travel is to live like a local, explore on foot and hunt out the alternative, different and offbeat (as well as the occasional tourist spot) This also means finding vegetarian/vegan eateries and supermarkets for home cooking while travelling, as I'm an avid cook and meal planner.

Visit my social media sites:


Having experience in end to end marketing, I understand that there is no one size fits all approach and am happy to explore the best approach for you and your clients.

This means that I offer a bespoke service based on yours/your clients needs. This can include personalised vlog, blog, live on the day social media coverage and Instagram posts. As well as general inclusion and mentions in my weekly vlog and stories.

I enjoy working on full scale projects as well as one off pieces.

Lead times can vary, but I appreciate around a two weeks notice so that I can arrange the work to both fit with my travel and commitments and to ascertain the best approach for publicising the work.
