Hi, I’m Lauren and welcome to The Postcard Project.

I decided to start this website about halfway through my solo trip around New Zealand – I’d seen so many beautiful places which I wanted to concisely capture the essence of; and wished that I’d bought a postcard from all the places I’d visited. However, it just didn’t seem right to start this halfway through the trip. So instead I decided I would dedicate a blog to my travels once I returned home, and here we have The Postcard Project!

I love travel – the experience, the freedom and the ability to choose to do what you want. I’ve travelled solo, I’ve travelled in small groups and I’ve travelled in large groups – all incredible experiences I’d do again and again. I’m here to share my experiences and learn about yours; there are so many places I want to see and so many things that I want to do both in the UK and abroad that I hope you’ll come back and find something new to read, to inspire and to share.

You’ll find my blog posts in the A Postcard from…┬ásection, beginning with my trip to New Zealand, Fiji, places in the UK (coming soon!) and who knows where next. For some travel inspiration I’ve listed the places I want to see in the Bucket List pages, under Travel Talk. You’ll find a list of places in the UK on the Home section and the places I want to visit abroad on the Away section. I also have lots of ideas in the pipeline, so keep checking back to see what’s next!
