Hey, hola, salut.
I’m Becca, the owner and writer of AlwaysCarryOn.com, a blog about my travels and experiences, both abroad and at home here in the UK. Rather than write reams of copy about myself though, I thought I’d answer a few questions instead…
Where are you based?
Originally from Woodley, a little suburban town on the outskirts of Reading, I now live in Reading town centre. I work in New Malden in Surrey, for a travel company.
Where have I travelled to?
There’s a post that covers this – check it out: 30 countries before 30: where I’ve been so far. In June 2017 I managed to complete my self-set challenge of visiting 30 countries before I turned 30 years old – in fact I even managed it with a few days to spare.
Why do I travel?
The short answer is: I want to see what the world has to offer outside of the UK. Sure, the UK is great, and I love exploring my home country too, but I’m curious about everything and I am hungry to learn.
When travelling to a new country I like making friends, I like having long discussions with strangers about things like their education systems, their beliefs and their traditions. I want to learn about how they live. And I strongly believe that travelling is the only way to garner these types of experiences. You can read about them in books or online, of course, but hearing it first-hand from the people who are living it is the best way to learn, in my opinion.
What have I learnt by travelling?
There’s a post on that too: What travelling to 30 countries has taught me.
Do I blog full time?
Nope – I have a full-time job at a marketing agency in London. So my travels have to be planned around work commitments and an annual leave allowance. Here’s a post about how I do it: How to travel the world while working a 9-5.
Want to work with me?
Great stuff. I’m PR and brand friendly, but please bear in mind:

- All branded links will be NO FOLLOW, as per Google guidelines.
- All gifted products/experiences will be marked clearly as: (*)
