If you don't understand the immense pleasure that comes from watching mud volcanoes go blop at you, I'm not sure we can be fiends.

If you don’t properly appreciate mud volcanoes, I’m not sure we can be friends.

“…to get abroad, a thing I like doing better than anything else, for I agree with those who have said that travel is the chief end of life.” – Rose Macaulay, The Towers of Trebizond

Hi! I’m Louisa, and I like to go to places. Sometimes I write about them afterwards.

I grew up in London, but spent eighteen months living and travelling in Central Asia at an impressionable age, and consequently gained a deep and abiding love for mutton fat, endless quantities of green tea and very slow trains. Subsequently deciding that world travel was probably almost as fun and definitely less work than being an astronaut (it’s still plan B),  I rewrote my life plan so that it involved less London and more former Soviet republics.

I am currently based in Tbilisi, Georgia, where I am busy arranging my life so that it contains as much khachapuri as possible.
