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 bunch 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.
Lola is a recent graduate in Hispanic Studies and is now studying a Masters in International Journalism. She’s always had a passion for writing and is channelling this love through her own blog, Talking About My Twenties, and freelance contributions to websites like this one! She writes about everything from travel to food to books and is always looking for new things to write about.
After graduating in English, Journalism and Creative Writing, then spending the best part of a year travelling Australia and New Zealand, Catherine has planted her feet firmly back in Scotland (for now). She currently writes freelance short fiction, blog posts and copy for small businesses – clearly she just can’t get enough of words.
