Hello! Yay! You found me 😃 Thanks so much for stopping by. In this section, you can learn all about me, Lauren and my blog Wild Lovely World.
I hope you’ll enjoy taking a look around and (hopefully) get inspired, learn something new or just have a relaxing and fun time reading.
Three Little Things About Me
- My name is Lauren.
- I am 33 years old.
- My biggest passion is travelling.
Why I Started This Blog
I have been an enthusiastic writer since a young age – I’ve kept a diary since I was 5 years old. But it was only 5 years ago that I began to realise that my two passions could together form the perfect profession.
The idea of being a professional travel writer with zero experience, network or examples, however, seemed an unattainable dream. So, from a professional viewpoint, this blog was a chance for me to exercise and practice my writing, develop my skills and experience, and build my portfolio.
The blog was also an outlet for my creativity and a free space to share my thoughts and ideas on anything I want to write about – this, I shall call, is the “beauty of blogging”! I’ve always loved writing and being a blogger is a great way to just do it and practice!
Throughout the years (since I went to Australia in 2010, actually!) I started and never finished so many blogs – I’d write the first few posts and call it a day. This time I wanted to make it a habit and commit and be accountable to my readers to provide you with the content that you want to read and publish on a regular schedule.
Five years later, my blog is going stronger than ever. I now have thousands of readers per month! (thank you for being one of them! 🙂 ). I have enjoyed documenting my travels and writing and taking photographs of my journeys. There is magic in reminiscing and sharing my travel experiences with my readers. I have learned a lot too. In a practical sense, I have grown my knowledge of SEO, WordPress and blogging in general. I’ve connected with a great community of travel bloggers through social media and I am excited to continue and where else this blog will take me.
Why You Should Read It
My goal as a travel writer is to inspire you to adventure, to travel more and in ways which will deepen your understanding of people, culture and your connections with the world. For those of you who can’t travel for any reason, I hope to fulfil your wanderlust desires by bringing stories to you, wherever you are.
As a budget traveller, I am always on the lookout for the best deals and ways to help me save money while enjoying what I love! I write posts about my best money-saving tips for budget travellers and backpackers so you can get the most out of your trip on a shoestring.
Being a solo female traveller, I understand the fears and anxiety that can come with travelling alone as a woman, so I hope to inspire confidence in others to travel no matter their gender or relationship status! Even though I am now also a couple traveller and I have an amazing partner (Fiachra) who accompanies me on many of my adventures, I still take a lot of solo trips!
I aim to provide you with completely honest and invaluable advice, based on research and my own real-life experiences, so you can make informed choices and confident decisions about how, when, where and why you travel.
The idea behind the “Wild Lovely World” is to share my experiences, and inspire you to make adventures of your own and follow your dreams!
Thank you so much for reading!
I’m so glad you are here and I would love it if we can go on this journey together – I’m sure you will enjoy it! 🙂
