Hi, I'm Ella!

Hey, there! I'm Ella - a 20-something year old born and bred in rainy England.

I've always had a strong desire to travel and immerse myself in different cultures.

It wasn't until 7 years ago that I took my first solo-trip. I truly fell for travel and the world that lay outside of my experiences and let's just say I fell pretty damn hard.

I believe in providing raw, authentic travel experiences, not just a glamorous highlight reel. Because let's face it, travel can be tough sometimes.

Trouble seems to follow me as I travel the world. I've not had a single trip that's gone to plan.

If I'm not bumping into hippos in the middle of the night, I'm getting caught up in tropical storms, injuring myself in some way (like when I got a drug syringe wedged in my foot) or just being plain stupid.

So join me as I barely make it round the world. I provide honest, first-hand experiences. There will be laughter, there will be tears and a whole lotta fun!

That's a brief introduction! If you want to know more about me, then check out the 'about me' page.

A Day Exploring San Cristóbal de La Laguna in Tenerife

I listened to the gentle sound of my shoes against the warm tarmac, a gentle beat which seemed to bounce off the tall surrounding hills. Above me, the sky was clear, allowing great rays of sunlight to filter down and kiss the rural Tenerife landscape. I tried again to clear my ears, so stubborn and… Read More

The Tragic Time I Got Sick in Tenerife

We returned home from a fantastic day spent exploring the Anaga Rural Park in the very north eastern tip of Tenerife. As I wrapped myself up and settled beside the log-burning stove, feeling the crisp warmth on my skin, I started to go downhill. For the entirety of the day I had been suffering with… Read More

Experiencing Tenerife’s Traditional African Market in Santa Cruz

There’s nothing quite like waking up to the blissful sound of the countryside. I walked through the dark villa, slats of brilliant sunlight lighting up horizontal lines on the red stone floor. My feet slapped quietly on the cold tiles. One by one, I approached the wooden shutters, pulled down the heavy grey iron bolts… Read More
