Hello, I’m Melissa!

Travel Enthusiast, Content Creator & Sun Seeker Extraordinaire!

I love a good matcha latte, am obsessed with hats and love to learn everything I can about the incredible countries that I visit along my travels. 

In 2018 I took the leap and switched my London lifestyle for continuous adventures abroad!

What's My Story?

Glad You Asked!

It all started in 2018, when I packed up my London apartment and switched the creature comforts of my city life for a nomadic life on the road! 



I packed my bags, bought a second-hand camera and a WordPress site and Voila! – Girl Around the World was born!

It may sound like a crazy thing to do, but it’s the best leap of faith I have ever taken.
