I’m Monica and I’m a British travel blogger.
I began travel blogging in 2009 when I left the UK to travel for two years. I bought a backpack and a one-way ticket to Australia and had the most amazing 2 years of my life as I travelled through Asia and around Oz in a battered old campervan. From the moment that ticket was booked I was hooked on travel and I’ve barely stopped ever since.
I’m now based in the UK and travel as much as I can. Sometimes it will be close to home in England or Wales but I still travel far and wide and I’ll show you how you can too!
Ssi-ch is all about weekend breaks and affordable adventures. I love exploring new countries and cultures, getting involved with exciting activities and generally having fun. I also love the stylish side of travel and I like to stay in nice hotels and eat in stylish or unusual restaurants. I’m not always talking about 5* glamour but affordable luxury and unusual experiences.
My travel style has changed slightly as I’m now a mum to two gorgeous boys, George (3) and Joseph (2). We travel as a family as much as possible but I also enjoy the odd mum-cation, a romantic trip or a holiday with my friends.
I don’t ‘travel hack’ in the traditional sense of collecting points but travel hacking to me is all about getting as much out of every travel experience possible. It’s about travelling more, seeing more, doing more, experiencing more and getting more for your money.
