Part-time traveller, Full-Time Brummie

About me

Emmalene at Duomo, Milan

I’m Emmalene, a thirty-something from Birmingham in the UK.  I always knew I wanted to travel the world when I grew up, even when holidays meant a caravan in wet and windy Wales.  I was lucky enough in 2007 to meet my soulmate, travel companion and now husband Chris (aka Mr Fletche), and our shared passion for seeing the world has led us to some amazing sights.  But a quick glimpse of my “Travel Wishlist” Pinterest site only highlights how big the world is, and how many places are still to visit.

I love to share my stories, often with my own unique spin on events.  I like to try and place people where I’ve been, through describing sights, smells, conversations, and yes, the very random thoughts that float through my head.

Apart from travel, I love to read books, listen to music, drink wine, write stories, and a big supporter of events and independent businesses in my own city.  I have also recently found myself taking up running – which gives me something else to blog about here

I hope you enjoy reading about our travels, seeing some of my husband’s amazing photographs and I look forward to sharing our new experiences with you all 🙂

Bon voyage!
