In June 2014 I was the most excited I have ever been.

I’d been dreaming of the experience all my life, and after years of waiting, it was finally about to happen – I was going on holiday, abroad!

I know it might not seem like a big deal (especially to those who’ve been on regular trips since they were young), but I never really had the chance to travel and be a tourist until then.

I always knew I wanted to see the world, and that travel bug has only grown more since that first trip years ago. Nowadays I’m constantly thinking about where to visit next, and dreaming of a new getaway is basically my happy place.

Whether it’s a short city break or big adventure trip, I love finding affordable luxury wherever I go, and will always try to get the most out of my money. My favourite places are those with a bit of culture and/or history, where I can eat and drink like the locals do. From kayaking Venice to cliff-walking in Spain, I also love finding interesting and unique day trips, excursions and local activities to try out.

When I’m not travelling I call Cardiff (UK) my home, which I share with my boyfriend and our rescue dog, Archer. I’ve lived here for the majority of my life, and I love being in the Welsh capital – at least for the time being, you never know.

By day I’m a Freelance Graphic Designer, and go away as much as my time and bank account will allow. I travel mainly with my long-suffering partner Dave, and this is where I’ll be sharing our experiences. Hopefully, it might even help others to plan their next adventure, too.

You can follow along with my latest trips on Twitter, Instagram, and of course, this blog.

And why Vic Advisor? It came about as a joke in work one day and kind of stuck…
