I’m Lucy, a 33 year old London based freelance journalist and blogger. Welcome to Wanderluce…..
Like many ‘millennials’, I went to university, studied something for the sake of it, and graduated with a degree and no direction. After falling into a job I’d never imagined I’d do, one thing led to another and I quit in 2013 and flew to Sri Lanka for a 6 month sabbatical. Two years later, Oli and I came home to London to get married after one hell of an adventure!
Travelling changed my life, it saved me from disappearing into hopelessness and it will always be a priority. Despite the fact that I live in London now, and no longer travel full time as a ‘digital nomad’, I’m constantly plotting my next adventure.
CAREER CHANGE QUEEN
The question I get asked a lot, is how I afford to travel, and what exactly do I do. I’m pretty transparent, so here goes.This blog started as a hobby, serving as a travel journal for me and Oli (my better half). But I’ve always enjoyed writing, and I quickly realised that I LOVED writing, taking pictures and unlocking the creativity I never thought I had.
So, in January last year, WanderLuce was born. This blog has evolved and will continue to evolve…..so if I’m honest, I struggle to describe my ‘niche’. In fact, the word strikes fear into my little creative heart! If pushed I would say that this is a ‘Female Centric Lifestyle Blog’.
I don’t even really know what that means, but these are the things that I love to write about: travel, wellness, food, beauty and life as a freelancer.
I don’t monetise my blog (bar a few small affiliate commissions) so I now make a living as Freelance writer and journalist, and working with companies like Travel Dudes and Traverse. I also regularly contribute to Live Share Travel, and edit the community blog Girls vs. Globe.
