About me ~
I’m Alice, UK travel blogger and advocate for sustainable travel. I want to show you just how easy it is to make responsible choices and doing our bit for the planet whilst we’re on the go. So grab a cuppa and get comfy!
I love going to places I haven’t been before, hiking in the hills, swimming in the sea and mooching around exotic markets in faraway places.
Here at Discoveny, we head to off-the-beaten-track locations and get there as sustainably as possible. We love responsible wildlife and community tourism, supporting local businesses and eating delicious vegetarian and vegan food. And we’re always conscious of our impact upon this magical planet and those we share it with.
My hope is to inspire you to get out there, see the world in all its glory, minimise your impact and maximise your fun. Tag along, you might just learn something…
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 destination. 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.
How we can help you ~
What started out as a small blog to keep friends and family updated on our adventures has turned into a real passion project.
We plan and pay for all our adventures. No free hotel stays, no free tours or activities, no sponsored gear or equipment. This means we know exactly what it’s like to plan your trip. It’s an expensive, time consuming, oftentimes overwhelming process; even more so if you’re trying to travel mores sustainably. Where do you begin?
We want to make that easier for you.
Our goal is to help you plan the perfect adventure, no matter how big or small. We provide you with simple breakdowns of sustainability issues, giving you all the knowledge you need to make the right choices for the planet. And when you’re ready to take the leap, we’ve written the detailed itineraries and streamlined guides that we wish we’d had when planning the same trip.
Since we pay for all our travel expenses, our opinions are truly our own. We do not take free or discounted trips so we have no issue writing our honest opinions. We ask for no special treatment when we travel (we do not even advertise that we are travel writers), so that we can pass on accurate information to you.
The majority of this website is written by us. We also feature a selection of handpicked, trusted guest writers who can provide interesting and alternative takes on a destination. For those of you who keep coming back, you can rest assured that everything on this blog is an honest account.
Through this blog, we hope to make your travel planning process easier and inspire you to visit new places whilst doing your best for planet Earth.
Get to know me ~
So, what's the story?
Nothing dramatic. I didn’t quit my job and sell all my possessions to travel the world as a full-time digital nomad. I’m not earning a six-figure income from blogging. I’m just a girl who loves to explore the planet, but if we want to keep having adventures, something has to change.
What can I expect?
Here at Discoveny I aim to regularly publish fresh, up-to-date and relevant travel content. From in-depth country guides to sustainable travel tips and our favourite off-the-beaten-path destinations and hidden gems, we’ve got it all. Head to the blog!
Why sustainable travel?
Travelling consciously and responsibly is important to me. For me, sustainable travel means taking responsibility for your actions. It means being mindful of the impact your travel has on the environment, local communities and wildlife. The goal of this travel blog is to help people travel more responsibly.
What makes you different?
Travel-blogging is oversaturated with glamourous influencer-types selling their ‘perfect life’ Instead of sugar-coating everything, I’ll give you a heavy dose of the realities of travel, which isn’t always perfect. Oh, and i’m not trying to sell anything either! I only promote products and experiences I believe in.
How do you afford to travel?
I’m not a full-time travel blogger. I currently work in a laboratory whilst studying for my MSc in Edinburgh. I save up as much as I can then hit the road, travelling on a budget!
