Welcome to The Vintage Vacationer

Welcome to my new blog, A Vintage Vacationer. Why have I chosen to start blogging? That’s probably a good way to begin a welcome post. I am a travel obsessive. That’s the best way to put it. When I’m not actually travelling, I’m planning my next trip. Or the one after that. Or the one after that. Or maybe a fantasy trip I probably won’t be able to afford for 20 years but am enjoying planning in the meantime. You get the idea. Cliche as it sounds, I want to share that passion with you.

I’ve developed a new obsession more recently, though. A love for vintage style. I want to share that too. So I’ll be mixing posts on my fashion finds and style tips in with the travel stuff.


It’s an exciting time for me as my husband and I have recently decided to pack up our lives and spend some time travelling the world. Of course, this is going to require a great deal of money so we’ll  have to save up first. I’ll catch you up on my travels of the past few years while we’re doing that. The only problem is, I hadn’t adopted my current style during those trips! So while I’ll be attempting to look much better on my future travels, you’ll see a lot of posts where I’m dressing and doing my hair and makeup pretty differently to how I do now.


Where I’m from; Hawkes Bay in New Zealand

We’re not going to be pinching all of our pennies until the big trip, though. We do have a few adventures coming up over the next year and, of course, you’ll be coming along. Then we’ll we on our way, backpacking across Asia and Eastern Europe before picking somewhere to settle down. Most likely in the United Kingdom, as Zak (the husband) has citizenship there but who knows?

See you with more soon,
