Hi, I’m Leanne.

A finance journalist by trade, I caught the travel bug late and am attempting to make up for lost time. I’m determined to scratch as many places off the map as possible, and I want to do it in style – I’m no budget backpacker, but I also don’t have the funds for five-star blowouts at every turn; it’s all about luxe for less, and I’m always on the hunt for a good travel deal to get a bit of luxury without the expense.

This blog is an outlet for my wanderlust, and my attempts to fit travel around the 9-5 (not an easy task with limited holiday time and equally as limited funds). You’ll find hotel reviews, travel experiences, local explorations, even the odd travel tip and news tidbit, and probably (definitely) a gin/wine-related post here and there. Come join me!
