Life’s Too Short Not to Travel in Style
Founded in 2019 by British freelance writer Katie Davies, the idea for Trendy Tourist came about while she was living in New Zealand on the working holiday visa.
After being in this beautiful country for just a couple of months, it dawned on her that she somehow had to make a suitcase’s worth of clothes last a year! Eek!
And it wasn’t the first time she’d had this problem.
After all, Katie had visited over 20 countries on various travel and backpacking trips in her twenties. Truth be told, she’d always struggled to look good, travel far and live well as a tourist on a budget.
In fact, she used to spend hours trawling the depths of Google trying to uncover how to be savvy with clothes, trips and money all at the same time.
She knew that there had to be a better way to find the information she was looking for.
That’s how Trendy Tourist was born.
At Trendy Tourist, we want you to look and feel your best while you’re travelling (near or far) so you can live your best life.
We aim to teach you how to pack effectively and build capsule wardrobes that take into account the latest trends so your fashion, suitcase space and travel funds can stretch further.
We’re all about giving you the tools you need to make the most of what you have — without sacrificing your style.
