About this site
After 20+ years of travelling I set up On the Luce to share some of my favourite places, photos, travel tales and tips to give inspiration to other independent travellers who might not be in the position to travel long term but want to make the most of their travel time, and anyone else who’s trying to combine a love of travel with work, love, friends and everyday life.
Some of the regular features on the site include Travel tales (places I’ve been and things I’ve seen), In pictures (photos that tell a story), Guides (tips and advice I’ve picked up on the road), Weekending (travel guides for when you only have a few days to spare) and Reviewed (my favourite accommodation for a touch of luxury on a budget).
All trips featured on On the Luce are planned, booked and paid for by me. Where I accept the occasional discount or sponsorship these will be clearly marked and I promise I’ll still give you my honest opinion.
Other travel blogs I like
I’m an obsessive travel blog (Twitter/Facebook/insert other time-wasting device…) reader and although I’ll read almost anything, particularly when I should be doing some work, there are a few I keep coming back to. Here are a few of my favourites:
… for inspiration to actually try and learn a language (or ten in his case): Fluent in 3 months.
… for general “you can give up your day job, travel the world, follow your dreams and have the best life ever” cheerleading (even for a slightly cynical Brit): The Art of Non-Conformity and Location 180.
