Wales is my happy place. It’s the land of dragons, castles, warrior princesses, fairies, magic, King Arthur & Merlin, kind and down-to-earth people, the amazing game of rugby and some of the most stunning scenery you’re likely to come across. And the best part is…
WALES IS UNDISCOVERED.
Yep…the people who know about Wales don’t want you to find out. But, you can get to know magical & mysterious Wales through it’s:
- Incredibly friendly people
- Lively & welcoming pubs
- Quirks & secrets
- Crazy good food (yes…it’s true.)
- Real ale & hand-crafted cider
- Mountainous railways
- Wildly beautiful wildness
- Grand houses
- Lush gardens
- And a coastal walking path that wraps around the entire country (all 870 miles of it!) (And, yes, Wales IS a country…NOT a part of England).
“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.”

Yes…we’ll talk about travel advice, tips, hacks & perspective, but we believe that travel is:
- delicious and should be savored.
- for creative inspiration & transformation
- helps you slow down and take notice, explore a place with intimacy and attempt to understand and view a place from a local’s point of view
- is minimalist…not just about getting the trophy souvenir and about how many countries you can visit in a single trip.
We’ll explore the journey from creating a blog to making it a real-life business that can help you create a thriving travel blog that gives you the time, money, and freedom to live the life of your travel dreams.
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
-Roald Dahl, The Minipins
I was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years. During that time I finished my social work degree, got a master’s in entrepreneurship and when my kids were older, I went to the University of Greenwich outside London to get my post-graduate certificate in microfinance. I guess you could say that I liked school.
My marriage of 25 years ended and I had to make a life for myself. Why not make a life less ordinary? One that involves location independence, travel, magic and helping people start & grow a travel blog/business?
In my life, I have been a Mother/Baby nurse, a business broker, a painter, a weaver, an eBook author, a business mentor and the creator & owner of 3 online businesses in travel & fair trade.
I have 21 years of experience planning trips to Europe, 12 years helping people start and grow online & offline businesses & I have been online for 10 years. I would love to help you start & grow your travel blog and then help you turn it into a thriving online business.
I love: creating online businesses, passive income, internet marketing, lifestyle freedom, having adventures & experiences, writing, reading, walking around to see what’s going on, food & travel (obviously).
My Life in Wales was launched in 2016 as a community for people who love Wales in particular and Celtic culture in general, who want to travel smarter (and minimally) and for travel entrepreneurs who want lifestyle freedom by starting a travel blog & business.
If you love Wales, travel & travel entrepreneurship/blogging you’ll feel right at home here.
