I’m a complete travel addict and created Pretty Planet as an outlet for my travel passion! Pretty Planet is a down to earth travel blog, set up to get you excited about travelling the world and provide you with helpful, realistic and affordable travel information, guides and tips to help you plan your next sustainable flashpacking adventure.
Hello and welcome to Pretty Planet, my name is Tula, I’m a 32 year old typical Cancerian from Milton Keynes in the UK. I married my soul mate Sean back in 2012 (cringe alert) who I’ve been with since I was 19 and we are both travel mad! I love nothing more than a good cuppa and a biscuit while daydreaming about my next big adventure.
Pretty Planet is a blog and venture I started up to share information, tips and experiences of travelling the world. I’ve been obsessed with travelling and seeing the world for as long as I can remember, and wanted to start up a travel blog for such a long time, and finally took the plunge in 2017 and created my blog. My blog is a space where I can gather together everything that inspires me about travelling and hope it helps you too.
I’m literally in love with Asia and Australasia they are my favourite areas to visit as much as I possibly can, my first trip to Thailand back in 2011 sparked my obsession for that part of the world. I have been extremely fortunate over the years to travel to lots of places such as flashpacking around Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo, Singapore, Philippines to name a few, exploring New Zealand by campervan, weekends away around Europe and many other trips in between. Over the years I have managed to travel to over 70 countries across 6 continents. I would describe my travel style as flashpacking and budget travel with the odd occasional splurge when I feel like something is worth it.
I live and work in the UK and knew when I was at school that I wanted to travel the world! I studied travel and tourism at college and university, and since I graduated I have worked in the travel industry working a whole range of jobs from hotels, travel agents and in corporate travel and events. I am now cabin crew for a large international airline based out of London and am lucky enough to get to travel with work and have layovers, it really is my dream job!
I hope you find my blog helpful, and I want to cover a whole range of travel topics on here from destination guides, travel tips, travelling on a budget, sustainable travel and information on what it’s like to be cabin crew. If you have any questions or would like to see me add something on here, please drop me a message in the contact section.
I’m always updating my blog in between flights, and there’s so much I still want to add to my little space on the internet, so add your email below to get notifications on new blogs and guides and follow along on my journey on Instagram. In the meantime grab yourself a cuppa and I hope you enjoy reading through some of my blogs and guides.
