Celebrating travel and the extraordinary world

Does travel brighten your life?

For me, the answer is a resounding yes. Exploring new places is my favourite thing to do. I love everything connected with it. Researching areas or sights to visit, planning itineraries, learning phrases in new languages, capturing travel moments through a lens, even illustrating my own maps. Basically, I’m obsessed.

The Painted Globe celebrates that passion for travel.

Here on the blog you’ll find my own travel planning, stories and photography, which I hope will be both interesting and inspiring to others. I also want to help you to plan your own adventures, so I fill my posts with practical resources. Things like curated lists for things to do, suggested itineraries, illustrated maps and travel tips.

I’m not an especially picky traveller but I do gravitate towards places rich in history, culture, beauty or nature. I guess those criteria cover the majority of places 😉

 

Get started with one of my destination guides, which collect together all my posts from our most recent trips, New Zealand and Japan:

Hey! I’m Lorna, the girl behind the blog.

Originally from the UK, in February 2016 I set out with my lovely fiancé, Ben, to explore beautiful New Zealand. We’re currently based in Wellington, the coolest little capital in the world.
