Ella in Wanderlust in Maldives

Hi, I'm Ella!

Born in rainy England, I've always had a strong desire to travel to warmer climates and immerse myself in different cultures.

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.

I provide honest, first-hand travel experiences, not just a glamorous highlight reel. There will be laughter, there will be tears and a whole lotta fun!

A Recap of 2020: The Year When Everything Changed

I’ve drafted a couple of recap posts now but none of them felt quite right to post. There’s a lot I could say about the year that has just passed. But I want to keep this blog travel-focused and don’t quite feel ready to show a more personal side to it. So let’s delve into… Read More
