Thanks for stopping by.
As my profile blurb says, I’m a Brisbane based freelance writer and blogger pursuing my passion for writing. This blog Travel Bug Within is about one of my serious passions: TRAVEL. Travellers share something in common – whether it’s a desire to meet people, experience new places and cultures, or re-visit somewhere where there was an affinity. I’m one of the countless millions travelling for various reasons: fun; adventure; curiosity and business. But no matter where I go – travel for me is special.
Travel inspires me and the travel bug inside would like to escape more often. However, at the moment I cannot uproot and travel endlessly. Somewhere in the future, my gypsy soul will wander for longer (sojourns in foreign places) but right now I’m mum to three lads (Mr 21 and two teenagers) so I am based in one place (mostly.) A few trips each year satiate the bug! My lads sometimes travel with me, helping me with writing inspiration, content (and occasional grief!)
Why follow me?
I’m an Associate Writer Member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers Thanks to this society’s immensely talented collective of travel writers, bloggers, editors, and PRs, I have expanded on my travel knowledge exponentially. And managed a few press trips in between, allowing me to expand on destinations to write stories.
I’m in my mid- 50’s now. I don’t feel it, but my lads tell me I am “old” (let’s hope they don’t mean it deep down!)
You won’t find backpacking stories here at Travel Bug Within. (Unless I’m recounting stories from my backpacking days a few decades ago now!)
What you will find are stories from my travels:
- as a solo traveller
- a single mum with her kids
- with friends
- on press trips.
I write about incidents that happened along the way, people I’ve met, what was interesting and what made things easier for me (tips) in case you decide to travel to the same destination. My stories are honest accounts that will hopefully keep you reading to the end and maybe entice you to sign up to read more.
Please take a moment to comment, I promise I will read them and reply.
If you’d like me to write for you, send an email to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
My wish is for my stories on Travel Bug Within will inspire you to explore more of our amazing world.
