who is travelling tam?


I wasn't born to travel. In fact, travel was never even part of my upbringing. Family holidays consisted of destinations within a four hour radius from home in England and I'd only once set foot on a plane, but I was so young I can't remember it.

My incredible 90 year old grandmother however, gallivanted around the world in her youth. It's her stories of high tea with Sultans in Brunei, nearly getting trampled by elephants camping in Africa and fleeing the Viet Cong in Vietnam, that stirred something in me, and made me dream of adventuring to foreign lands.

I took my first solo trip at 22 years old; a year backpacking through 12 countries and across 3 continents. Since then I've visited over 30 countries and my life now completely revolves around organising my next trip. So thanks for inspiring one of the most infectious (and expensive) hobbies out there Gran! 


What Now?

When I’m not on the road, I’m now either freelance travel writing for various online publications, or sharing travel advice and inspiration on this blog. If you want to have a nosy at some of my previous work, you can browse some of my popular posts below.


Where’s next?

My next destinations are:

The Philippines - May 2019 (3 weeks)

South Korea - May 2019 (1 week)

And a few others TBC - watch this space!



If you're interested in working together, have any travel/blogging questions, or of course feedback for me, I'd absolutely love to hear from you. Please fill in the form below or email travelling.tam@hotmail.com.


Anyway, thank you for your support and happy reading!
