About Lydia

I’ve been lucky enough to have visited some beautiful places and had some amazing experiences, including going on Safari in Kenya, completing the Ha Giang Loop in Vietnam on a motorbike and working at a summer camp in the Pocono Mountains in the USA. After university, I lived in Thailand and taught English in a town called Sriracha (where the hot sauce comes from). I then backpacked around Southeast Asia. I have a thirst for exploring. I love how travelling allows you to experience a variety of different cultures and meet people from all walks of life.
