Welcome to The Trendy Tourist, helping you travel in style since 2019.
The Trendy Tourist was started by me, Katie Davies, a UK blogger and freelance writer currently living in (and travelling around) New Zealand.
From various travel and backpacking trips in the past, I always knew that it was difficult to look good, travel far and live well as a tourist on a budget.
However, this became more apparent when I flew to New Zealand on the working holiday visa and realised that I had to make a suitcase’s worth of clothes last a year!
After frantically Googling around, I couldn’t find the information I was looking for in terms of how to be savvy with clothes, trips and money (all at the same time!)
That’s how The Trendy Tourist was born.
The Trendy Tourist was previously the KatieKat blog and then I Spy Trends before that.
Why? Well, I was initially encouraged to start blogging by my Fashion Marketing and Branding university lecturers in 2011, where I spent all my spare cash on clothes instead of food (oops).
After I graduated in 2012, I worked in two different-sized marketing departments, tried my hand in technical design and travelled the world.
And my love of blogging never went away.
This caused me to take the plunge and start my own freelance writing business in 2017. In addition to writing for client blogs, websites and online magazines all over the world, I provide freelance writing tips and advice to new freelance writers through the DreamScribe blog.
And do you know what? I’m having the time of my life!
(Cue the Dirty Dancing music.)
Boring background info over, here are a few things that you might not know about me:
Are you a brand or business looking to showcase your fashion or travel products or services? Do you primarily target millennial females who are looking for affordability? Great news! The Trendy Tourist is available for collaboration!
Alternatively, are you ready to dive straight into a campaign? Ooh, you’re keen! (But I kind of like it.) Contact me here.
