"We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls."

Hi I'm Lynn, I'm a travel addict. 

I have a penchant for luxury travel, photographing animals and ticking off adventures from my ever-growing bucket-list even though I hope not to die so soon. I started this blog in July 2016 to share my love for exploration with the world. And at the same time, provide curated, tried and tested itineraries for destinations all around the world to help you plan your next big adventure! The sea and the sand are my favourite things in the world.

When I'm not travelling, I'm at home dreaming about living in a farm with my two dogs. 

Adventure is always the top priority and luxury comes a close second. Although it seems oxymoronic, I strive to balance the two comfortably and affordably. Please feel free to use my itineraries as you like and let me know how you might have done it differently! Enjoy the photos but please give credit when credit is due.

Most of all, I hope my stories entertain you and provide you with some travelspiration for your next adventure!
