Not all those that wander are lost

Welcome to my travel journal. The Simple Luxe Living travel blog is the ultimate celebration of the spirit of travel. The philosophy behind every travel article is to inspire the traveller to follow their curiosity, step outside their comfort zone and go out and explore and experience everything that our beautiful planet has to offer.

We are all explorers and born with an innate curiosity. Whether we are in our own backyards or sitting on a sun drenched beach on some exotic pacific paradise. What makes you wonder? What are you questioning? What’s new in your world?

Through my independent travel blog I hope to inspire you in some small way  to get out and explore the world around you. The majority of my travel notes step off the beaten tourist path, seek out hot new destinations and ultimately explores destinations with a purpose.

Keep your eyes open, your passion alive and you will be amazed at what you discover. Live to wander, experience and explore!

When you least expect it, the great adventure will find you
