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 scratch 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; luxe for less is my mantra, 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, even the odd travel tip and news tidbit, and probably a gin/wine-related post here and there. Come join me!
