About the blog

Faraway Lucy is a rapidly growing travel website with over 200,000 page views a month, founded by British writer, Lucy Ronan, in 2014. It’s a blog for part-time travellers, those who are career-minded but who prioritise travel and experiences for their income.

My mission is to show you how it’s possible to travel around work. Because surely you have to choose one over the other, right? Wrong! I’ll help you see more of the world for less through my travel guides, resources, and tips.

The blog’s main goal is to encourage young professionals to travel and explore more, whether it’s international or just down the road, up a rooftop bar or up in a treehouse. I’m all about infusing a little more adventure into the everyday!

About Lucy

Hey there! My name’s Lucy and I’m the 27-year-old UK-based scribbler behind Faraway Lucy.

My background is in content and social media marketing but I left the corporate world to pursue blogging full-time in 2021. I’ve been travelling the world and sharing my experiences for almost a decade but now I get to do it every day!

My happy place is in the mountains, so when I’m not writing, you’ll usually find me hiking with a camera in hand. I’m also a big bookworm and a huge adrenaline junkie.

Faraway Lucy compiles all of my hobbies into one beautiful little lump of creativity in which I can fuel my love for travel, writing, marketing, photography, and design.

Creating Faraway Lucy has transformed my life in ways I could have never imagined, and it has become such an intrinsic part of my identity. So thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet. I hope it continues to inspire you to see more of the world, despite whatever limitations may be holding you back!

Frequently Asked Questions

How old are you?


Where have you travelled?

So far I have travelled to 25 countries… Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Thailand, Scotland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, the USA, and Wales.

Do you earn money through your blog?

Yes, I do. Blogging is my full-time job! But don’t you worry, I would never work with a brand I don’t fully endorse and any paid content I produce is always disclosed.

Why did you choose to call your blog ‘Faraway Lucy’?

I’ve been a major bookworm since I was a kid and my favourite book series when I was very little was Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree. That is where the ‘faraway’ originates from. The word also connotes ideas of daydreams, travel and adventure, all of which are core components of this blog.
