Vickyflipfloptravels.com is a nine-year-old travel and festival blog for anyone who wants to make the most of the time they have to travel.
I write about food, wellness, adventure and guides to how to uncover the best of your new destination, from first hand experience. I cover weekends, weeks, fortnights and long term travel.

What my readers said about me in my last reader survey…
– “How you write is so easy to read and possibly the best thing ever is that you don’t write the really, really obvious list posts that I keep seeing more and more lately, or in other words ones that just state the plan obvious/common sense.”
– “The layout and colours are eyecatching and easy to read while the content is interesting, informative and not too wordy or formal.”
– “It’s honest and includes plenty of anecdotes”
– “The witty writing style – it’s a lot more humorous compared to the other blogs I read, and that’s what sets it apart.”
– “Your passion”
– “Your blog posts about Iceland convinced me that I needed to get my butt into gear. And also, having followed your blog for years, it was one of the very first blogs I ever read which inspired me to start blogging! So…go you! :)”
– “I love how real you are about your travels and with your photos, they not all perfectly posed in front of that iconic sight. Reading your stories is like a friend telling you how it really was and going through their photos.
– “Everything you post radiates your personality and that’s what a lot of bloggers are missing nowadays. So basically, go anywhere — I’d read it all! :D”
Many of my readers said that I was ‘authentic’, ‘relatable’ and ‘fun’.
I was proud of the feedback!

My female travel podcast
I started a weekly podcast in February 2019. Every week I chat with another amazing female in travel about there where, why and how of her travels. We pick a few topics, a destination, and just go. It’s had some great feedback and while season 1 is wrapping up, I’ll be starting on recording season 2 very soon.
