If you’re here – we must have something in common: A big passion for travel! 

I’m Chloe, an award-winning travel blogger with over twenty years of media experience. This travel blog was launched in 2014, and has been my full-time career ever since.

I’ve visited 60 countries, from hidden gems in Vietnam and isolated islands off the coast of Sicily, to the most famous sights in New York and Paris. Many of my jobs have been collaborations with tourist boards and PR agencies, who book me to shine a light on their destinations.

My career as a well-respected travel blogger has earned me awards including winning TravMedia’s Travel Influencer of the Year in 2022. I’ve been interviewed by the BBC about my travels, spoken on panels at industry events and worked with huge brands including Google and Canon.

I was one of 5 Visit England ambassadors and 7 Lonely Planet Trailblazers. Plus, when Google contacted me to become an ambassador for their Pixel phones, I couldn’t say no!

I am passionate about freelance travel writing too. My work has appeared in print, in guide books for Lonely Planet as well as the Rainbow Atlas. I’ve contributed freelance travel features to Wanderlust Magazine, Metro, the Telegraph and Huffington Post.

I launched this blog to share stories, tips and photos, and hopefully inspire you to go on your very own adventures!

Launching Wanderlust Chloe

My life as a full time jet-setter began in 2014 when I left a rather stressful media job and let loose. I flew to Mexico and spent three and a half months exploring Central America, Cuba and Mexico. Still to this day, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It inspired me to be braver, more ambitious, and enjoy life!

Since then I’ve travelled, freelanced and worked hard to create a blog designed to inspire fellow wanderlusters… like you!

The year after I launched my blog, I notched up a whopping 36 flights visiting 15 different countries. I turbo-boosted my dream into a reality. My passion for travel took me from Morocco to Croatia and Turkey to Latvia. It was eye opening and exactly what I’d been longing for.

I was over the moon to be named one of the UK’s top travel blogs (already!) and started to collaborate with some of the top brands in the travel world including Visit London, Visit England, the Turkish Tourist Board, MedSailors and more!

I achieved all of that in my first year as a travel blogger. I look back at those first few trips with such fond memories. They were my first baby steps into what would become my career.

Establishing my career as a top travel blogger

Over the following 9+ years I have explored destinations all over the planet, creating content wherever I went. There are way too many highlights to mention, but here are a few that hold special memories:

  • Exploring Raja Ampat in Indonesia – a secret paradise like no other
  • Visiting Chile and Argentina with my future husband (I had no idea back then what would become of our relationship!)
  • Shooting a video series on Hawaii with a top production company
  • Sailing around Sicily’s Aeolian Islands with Medsailors
  • Road tripping around California with Trek America
  • Exploring Puglia in Italy – one of my favourite places in the world
  • Presenting a video on New Orleans’ food scene for Lonely Planet
  • Taking a helicopter ride over the snowy Rocky Mountains in Canada
  • Being named one of five Visit England Ambassadors and exploring my home country on several varied trips
  • Becoming an expert in The Caribbean, with travels in Dominica, St Kitts, St Martin, Dominica, Cuba, Antigua, Barbados and more!

Diversifying from travel blogging

Alongside this blog, I also run the following businesses:

The Great British Bucket List – An inspirational travel blog focused on travel within Great Britain.
The Travel Print Store – An ETSY store to sell prints of our travel photography from around the world. You can read more about that here.

It’s fair to say I never expected to have so many opportunities to see the world… and the greatest part is that I get to share it with you guys. I didn’t predict my blog would become a business, but I’m so glad the hard work paid off.

While we may now have a little one in tow, I don’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down just yet! I still adore exploring this amazing planet, and I can’t see where my travels will take me next.

My Life Before Becoming A Travel Blogger

I hinted at my media background. Before catching this travel bug I worked in UK radio for 5 years producing some of the most popular radio shows including London’s biggest breakfast show on Heart FM. I created fun and engaging radio with the likes of Michael Buble, Lionel Richie, Olly Murs, Bear Grylls, Cameron Diaz, and spent many days in a studio with the nicest Spice Girl – Emma Bunton. I also got up at 4.30am every weekday. You try doing that… and not going a little bit mad (no wonder I needed to let off some steam!)

After that I spent a few years working in the music industry, which involved a stint working on The X Factor… don’t worry – I wasn’t auditioning! My dulcet tones only come out when it’s very late, and I’m at a karaoke bar…

If you‘re interested in collaborating, find out how to work with me or drop me a message below. It’d be lovely to hear from you.
