I’m Emma. I’m 23 years old and I was born and raised in a village just outside Glasgow in beautiful Scotland.
Ever since I was just 6 months old, when my fabulous parents took me on my first flight, I’ve been filled with a deep and inescapable sense of wanderlust. Travelling is my passion. I love nothing more than packing a suitcase and travelling somewhere new and exciting whether it’s alone, with friends or with family.
In early 2012, towards the end of studying for my English Literature degree at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, I knew working 9 to 5 in an office cubicle wasn’t for me. I started Emma’s Travel Tales and begun my quest for a location independent lifestyle. What’s location independence I hear you ask – well, it’s the ability to work from anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access. Basically, I challenged myself to live life differently to what was expected of me.
So far I have travelled to 30 different countries and have no intention of stopping anytime soon.
When I’m not travelling abroad, exploring new cities, towns, beaches and everything in-between I love to explore everything that Scotland has to offer. Sometimes you don’t have to go too far to have an amazing experience and the best places are often on our own doorstep.
What is my travel style?
Well, I’m not a backpacker, so you’re probably not going to read about me backpacking around Asia like the millions of other travel blogs out there.
I’m not really a hostel type of girl either. I love the idea of meeting a bunch of new people, but I also really like having my own space. When I’m travelling I much prefer to spend a little more money and stay in a great hotel or apartment. Being in nice surroundings all adds to the travel experience, right?! I’m all about making the most of my money though. If there’s a bargain to be had, I’ll find it and I love to save money when booking travel.
Join me here on my blog as I share my travel experiences, photos, tips, and advice from wherever my travels take me to next. I’m busy making memories around the world.
A big thank you to each and every one of you who decide to click on my blog every day. I hope to continue to make my little slice of the internet and enjoyable place for you to visit.
