“…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.
