en years ago, I created a blog on the internet called The Travelista. Eager to write, get my work published and ultimately become a travel journalist, creating a blog felt like a no-brainer. Back then I had no idea that it would evolve into a business and become a catalyst that enabled me to travel the world.

As I began to approach the blog’s 10 year anniversary, I began to wonder what’s next? Becoming the editor of a magazine has always been my dream job, but I realised I was already sitting on my own publication and media business, albeit in blog form. In September 2023 I took the leap and transitioned my blog into what you see today, an online publication for the adventurous modern woman.

y vision was to create an online publication and community for women who love to travel, but have grown up beyond their early 20’s. Gone are the days of gap years and backpacking. Like me, they are juggling things like motherhood, careers, homes and relationships alongside their passion for travel. Like me, they’ve been left wondering how travel and adventure can still fit into their lives, when the modern world demands so much of them. If that sounds familiar, you’re in the right place.

I think the trick is being adaptable, realising that a sense of adventure can still be found throughout all stages of life; it may just look a little different. Whether that be travelling with a toddler after years of adult-only beach breaks, or embracing single life with your first solo holiday in your 30’s, Travelista is cheering you on for it all.

I would love you to join the Travelista community by subscribing to our weekly newsletter and following our social channels.

Thanks for being here!
