The Painted Globe Travel Blog - About


Welcome to The Painted Globe travel blog. It’s lovely to have you!

The Painted Globe is all about sharing my love of travel and supporting others to plan their adventures. I hope to create a treasure trove of travel inspiration, with beautiful photography and illustration sitting alongside super-practical guides, itineraries and travel tips.

A little bit about me

Hey! I’m Lorna. 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.

Two overarching constants in my life are creativity and dreams of travel. Both formed the motivation behind The Painted Globe, which you can read a little more about here.
