Lauren The Holiday Designer

I'm a passionate traveller who has spent the last year on a round the world trip. I've now started up my own company helping people to travel adventurously without the need for package tours. www.theholidaydesigner.co.uk if you want to check it out!

My favourite continents are Europe, South America and SE Asia and i've travelled extensively in all of them, but there is still so much to see. I love to read about different countries and get inspired for my future trips, and I hope to inspire people in the same way.
