Welcome Fellow Travel Friends!

First up, thanks for clicking on this website. If you’re here and reading this it’s probably because you’re interested in travel.

If not, I’m sorry you may have landed on the wrong website. But, never mind. Stick around if you like beautiful images, landscapes, food and advice because we’ve got heaps of that on here.

So a quick background about myself.

My name is Maya. I’m in my late 20’s, I’m British and I’m the girl behind Miss Globetrotter & Friends.

I am a self confessed, GLOBETROTTER.

I love to travel with friends, family, solo, in groups. In fact, just tell me when and I’ll have my backpack packed and ready to go!

So how did I become so passionate about travel? Well it all started in 2016.

December 2016: I left my ‘dream career’ to go backpacking for 6 months. I started a six-month, solo backpacking trip around Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam & Bali.

May 2017: A month before my 6 month backpacking trip was due to end I decided I wasn’t ready to go home.

June 2017: I fell in love with Vietnam and decided it’ll be the place I called home for a while…


September 2018: I left Vietnam for a new adventure – Australia.

September 2018-January 2019: I backpacked, worked on several (horrendous) farms, experienced New Years Eve in Sydney. Hands down the BEST NYE I’ve ever experienced.

January 2019: I became extremely homesick and needed a few months back in England.

January 2019 – January 2020: A few months in England turned into a year. I hadn’t realised how much I’d missed my home comforts – especially my own bed.

NOW: I’m currently working on future goals, plans & travel adventures.

At this exact moment (January 2020): I’m getting ready for a month backpacking in Mexico. If you’ve got any travel tips for Mexico please reach out to me.

So that’s me and my story of how travel become part of my life.

On this blog I’ll be sharing stories from travellers all over the world. They’ll be talking about their own personal experiences, sharing tips and travel advice and discussing travel topics that aren’t often discussed.
