What is The Cosy Traveller?

The Cosy Traveller is a UK travel blog focusing on helping you make the most of your annual leave.

From weekend trips around Europe to affordable luxury travels further afield, I like to mix up my adventures and keep things interesting. Because what’s the point of working hard if you can’t enjoy your free time?

Are YOU a Cosy Traveller?

Do you look for any of the following on your travels?:

  • Tea (or coffee. I won’t judge. Too much…)
  • Animals
  • Snug, quirky hotels with luxurious beds
  • Slower forms of travel, including train trips or boat rides
  • Beautiful scenery that gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling inside

If you can say ‘YES!’ to any of the above, then you’re officially a Cosy Traveller!

If not, don’t worry – I also cover a heck of a lot of other content on this blog, from epic city guides to London events and incredible competitions.

More About Me

Hello! My name is Emily, and I’m a London-based 20-something who loves travel and comfort.

In July 2016 I took the leap into freelancing, but when I’m not working I get my kicks from booking holidays, talking about travel, and day-dreaming about far-flung destinations.

The Cosy Traveller blog was set up in 2012 after a summer of ticking off some major bucket list items, including climbing (not literally) the Empire State Building in New York, and exploring the sights of Hong Kong.

Now that I’ve finished all my studies I’ve found myself with a lot more spare time. Join me as I aim to see more of the world, explore different cultures, and still find time for a good cup of tea.

Why is your blog called ‘The Cosy Traveller’?

I make no illusions about this: I love my comfort. When I’m at home, I’m often found wrapped up in bed, cup of English breakfast tea  by my side and some cats curled up to me. These are the things I always appreciate when travelling: bed, tea and cats.

It’s a running joke that I can pretty much fall asleep anywhere – one time in Hong Kong I even fell asleep on a boat which was heading into a typhoon, while everyone around me was throwing up.

This is not to say I’m adverse to roughing it – I’ve had way too much experience with student digs, after all! Shared bathrooms, hostels and long coach trips: come at me! Just don’t be surprised when I whip out a pillow for my 40 winks.
