Thank you for visiting the blog and hello!
I’ve been travelling in style on a budget for the last 6 years, blogging about my adventures here at the BudgetTraveller.
The focus of my blog has always been to show people how to travel in style on a budget. So whether it is finding a luxury hostel in Madrid ( you read it right) or a budget boutique hotel in Amsterdam, finding the best cicchetti in Venice or what unique cultural experiences you can discover in Berlin on a tight budget– it is all here in one blog.
I’ve been featured by the New York Times, Guardian, Vanity Fair & National Geographic. I’ve presented and was the face of the Spring 2015 advertising campaign for Japan National Tourism Organisation, a project developed in partnership with Lonely Planet. I am also the author & creator of the ‘Luxury Hostels in Europe’ guide which you can download for free from the blog.

I’ve also helped develop a number of award-winning campaigns like #BlogVille for the Emilia Romagna Tourism Board and #Blogmanay for Unique Events and Visit Scotland.
I also run Must Love Festivals , a collaborative blogging project with 17 other international bloggers , developed in partnership with Expedia and 11 tourism boards and brands. The aim of the project is to raise the profile of lesser known but interesting festivals across Europe. Altogether, the team are visiting over 40 festivals this summer across 16 different countries. The project went global this year.
I am also a blogger outreach expert for the destination marketing agency, Toposophy so if you need help developing your blogger outreach or creating a campaign to promote your destination or brand, let’s talk.
