Hi, I’m Marie Olin from the UK. Welcome to my luxury travel blog! I love to travel, explore, write and I’ve circled the globe many times and still have many more places on my wish list.
I share my tips for luxury travel. Unlike many other luxury travel bloggers, I simply write about my everyday life – aware that I am very, very lucky to live this lifestyle.
I am writing a book and also write for various magazines around the world. I accept invitations for trips, events and so on, if they fit with my luxury brief. I only write about things I have experienced and can recommend to my readers.
WHAT I AM TRYING TO ACHIEVE:
My ‘blogger goals’, if I can put it that way, have changed over time. They have becoming more complex. Bloggers are playing an increasingly important part in offering travel advice for their readers, encouraging them to explore the world and making the most of their valuable holiday time.
I want to make the world a fun and interesting place for my readers! Travel safely, travel to countries that are not on the typical tourist trail, be adventurous and I want to give great advice and help people to explore emerging travel markets. My greatest reward is to receive messages from readers who visited somewhere because of my recommendation!
Bloggers can help promote different countries, travel experiences, resorts and hotels and become a trusted and reliable resource for our followers. Encouraging people to take a trip out of high season and to emerging markets is very rewarding.
THINGS I CAN DO:
I ride horses very well, since the age of five, I can drive more or less anything including Quad bikes, tractors, any farm machinery, trucks, I can shoot and I farm Pedigree Coloured Ryeland Sheep. I love to jet ski, water ski, love yachts and have a Captain’s licence, kayak, swim.I love to keep fit and run most days. I have two BA degrees in Psychology and Criminology.
January – Russia and Jordan.
Malta! I love last minute decisions. And…… Morocco, Camel trekking in the Sahara Desert! What to wear? Decisions, decisions.
France and UAE
2018 wish list: Chile. France, Italy, Ibiza, A luxury safari. Maybe I will make it to Antarctica!
I will blog about the best places to go and fun things to see, I can’t wait! I hope you will add to my suggestions. Luxury travel bloggers get to stay in terrific places all over the world and are experienced travellers. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you want some advice about where to go, what to do. I love receiving your emails an enjoy giving advice.
PLEASE NOTE: I never ask anyone to contact you ‘on my behalf’. If you are contacted by anyone other than me, it is without my knowledge, and I would be grateful if you could inform me. A downside to becoming one of the UK’s top Luxury Travel bloggers I guess! Thank you.
Disclaimer: Some of the products and clothes are gifted to me. I only accept gifts from companies that I love and use all the time. If I write about something and say I like it, I really do like it and use it. Also, some of my trips are invitations or subsidised. I only go to places that I really like so my recommendations are always impartial.
