About this site
On the Luce aims to inspire independent travellers who might not be in the position to travel long-term but want to make the most of their travel time. I’ve been travelling for over 20 years so have plenty of tips, stories and photos to share – from the UK, Europe and around the world. I’d describe my travel style as ‘budget luxe’, meaning I like to make the most of my money but throw in a few luxury touches where I can.
Regular features on the site include Travel tales (places I’ve been and things I’ve seen), In pictures (photos that tell a story), Guides (tips and advice from the road), Weekending (travel inspiration if you only have a few days to spare) and Reviewed (my favourite accommodation and gear for high quality on a budget).
All trips featured on On the Luce are based on my own travel experiences. The vast majority are planned, booked and paid for by me. Where I accept the occasional discount or sponsorship these will be clearly marked and I promise that I’ll still give you my honest opinion.
My favourite travel blogs
I’m an obsessive travel blog reader (especially when I’m supposed to be doing something useful) but have a few favourites that I keep coming back to:
- Fellow part-time travellers combining a love of travel with everyday life: Backpacks and Bunkbeds, See My Travels, Grown Up Gap Year, The Travel Hack, Girl Tweets World and Two for the Road.
- Female travellers exploring the world: Beyond Blighty, Reclaiming My Future, Never Ending Footsteps, Legal Nomads and Alex in Wanderland.
- Giving me hope that it is possible to combine marriage, kids and other grown up exploits with travel and adventure: yTravel Blog and Mummy Travels.
- And finally some lovely (and talented) bloggers I’ve got to know since starting this site: Travel with Kat, Restless Jo, The Travelbunny, A Bit of Culture and Need Another Holiday.
