Until recently, I was a one-man-band. Built from the ground up all on my ones, Faraway Lucy is my brand and my baby. But with dreams as big as mine, you can’t always do things solo! And that’s why I got a talented group of writers and keen travellers on board to help me continue creating content that inspires you to see more of the world, both at home and abroad. They’ll be sharing tips and itineraries from their own travels, as well as local gems they love. So here’s a chance for you to find out a little bit more about the team behind Faraway Lucy…
Founder and Editor
In case we haven’t met before: hey, my name’s Lucy, I’m 24 and I’m from the UK. I’m the founder, editor and creative behind the Faraway Lucy brand. By day I work in marketing and by evening and at the weekend I try to cram in as much adventure and blogging as possible! My happy place is in the mountains – when I’m not blogging, you’ll usually find me hiking with a camera in hand. I’m also a big bookworm with a huge adrenaline streak who loves a bit of indie rock.
