Travel like a local

About The Travellist What the what?

I've been solo travelling on and off since 2004 when I finished university. My love of travel grew and the more I saw of the world, the more I realised I wanted to explore more than just a few weeks a year. So in 2014 I took the life-changing decision to leave my job, friends and family in the UK to travel the world permanently.

The first year was mostly spent in Southeast Asia but I plan to experience as many places as I can, working along the way. Alongside my love of travel are my passions for food, wine and ales of the world. I have spent a lot of time researching and exploring local food as I travel (and then sharing the knowledge in my food & travel guides). I also have studied wine including the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits.

I've tried to collect everything useful that I've learnt along the way in my Travel Tips section.
