About us -
Hey there! I’m Alice and this is Discoveny, a UK travel blog for the sustainable adventurer on a budget. Written by me with occasional input from my partner, Marius, and hand-picked guest writers, Discoveny focuses on sustainable and ethical adventures on budget. We’re content creators, slow travellers, plant lovers, vegetarians, ethically minded and sustainability enthusiasts.
Alice is a tea-drinking, mountain-climbing lass from Yorkshire, UK. She started Discoveny in 2020 to record her travel experiences and thoughts. Alice has visited more than 25 countries and writes hiking guides, eco-travel tips and is an advocate for responsible travel. Alice is studying her MSc in Biodiversity and Taxonomy of Plants and plans to work as a Botanical Horticulturist. She is currently living in Edinburgh. Read Alice’s blog posts here.

Our aims -
Our aim is to travel the world as much as we can in the most responsible, sustainable and ethical way possible. This means minimising flights, opting for longer trips using overland travel and being eco-conscious once we reach our destinations. We enjoy travelling to unusual countries and off the beaten track destinations and wanted a place to document our travels, and so Discoveny was born.
We aim to be advocates for sustainable adventures and want to encourage as many people as possible to travel in the same way. Our planet is beautiful, but it’ll only stay beautiful if we take good care of it. We hope that by reading some posts over a good cup of tea you can learn how to travel responsibly too.
