Born out of site founder, Cat’s recent 5 week solo trip across the USA, Wanderlust, Worrying and the World aims to provide practical tips, insights and guides for a wide range of travellers, but especially those who are maybe put off taking that trip of a lifetime by ‘fear of the unknown’.
A natural born worrier, Cat set her fears to one side and ignored the advice of the internet, family and friends to travel most of the way round the US by Greyhound bus. Whilst this did little for her sanity, it did provide an opportunity to spend time with some of the more ‘interesting’ characters in the vast expanse of land between California and the Eastern seaboard. A music lover with experience of running pubs and a music shop, Cat has travelled through South America, North America, Iceland and the Adriatic Coast amongst other European cities. Cat is currently a civil servant who dreams of putting that out of office on permanently.
Chief contributor Dave has a more laid back approach to travel and his own safety. Having experienced stints in Nigeria, Ghana, Jamaica, Jordan & South Africa through work, Dave likes nothing more than meticulously planning & researching personal trips with his wife Laura, a typical tentative traveller. A music and beer lover, Dave’s frequent European city breaks often have a focus on finding the finest independent ale houses and eateries.
Not only will the site share tales and info from Cat and Dave’s respective trips far and wide, it will also have reviews, guides and anecdotes from a range of UK based trips and events such as music & beer festivals. We will also aim to share useful travel websites and deals as and when we come across them.
