Hi, I’m Marie Olin and I’m 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. Please don’t ask me to write generic articles, I only write about things I have experienced and can recommend to my readers.
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. Thank you!
I try and ‘give back’ with my charity work. I will share this as time goes on. I will always write for my favourite charities for free.
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.
This month: September 2017
Read my latest blog all about my latest finds. I am in the South of France and Italy, it is the best time of year now to visit.
Coming up later in 2017
Monaco – I will be working as accredited Press at The Monaco Yacht Show late September. See you there hopefully!
Monaco coming up in September, Italy October. Might squeeze in a late visit to Ibiza if time permits. Southern Italy in October.
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.
My Luxury Travel Rules:
1. Travel in style! Essential but not necessarily expensive. Luxury does not necessarily involve money – a moonlit walk along a beach is the ultimate in luxury for most city dwellers and is FREE.
2. Stress-free. Life is too short – make everything as uncomplicated as possible. We all feel stressed by different things in life., make sure you address the issues that affect you while travelling. For me, this means flying business or first class (I’m too old for budget flights, unless they are very short!). Splurge on the most extravagant hotel or villa that you can afford, it will be worth every penny.
3. Enjoy! The MOST important.
Let’s explore the world together!
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.
