Hello and welcome to my little corner of the Internet! My name is Lisa, and I am a 30-something UK-based travel and food blogger, vlogger, podcaster, and freelance writer and videographer. (I know what you are thinking, it’s shocking that I am in my 30s as I look so young, or at least I hope you believe that).
I left home at 17 years old to pursue a career in the entertainment, travel and tourism industry working as an entertainment manager on holiday parks across the UK, hotels in Greece, Mallorca and at sea. After many years of travelling meeting many interesting people, having many adventures and learning about different cultures I wanted to create something that I could use to document my adventures and a place people could use as a resource for seeking expert travel advice, sharing my cooking recipes and share new gadgets with them.
About One Epic Road Trip
One Epic Road Trip initially started because I was going to drive from the UK to America, but after a lot of research and for personal reasons, I chose to focus on all things travel and not restrict myself.
One Epic Road Trip is now a travel blog that focuses on all types of travel, tips and hacks, destination inspiration, recipes and travel gadgets and accessories.
UK Travel Content Creator
I love a good adventure, whether it’s on my own or with family and friends. Because of my passion for travel, I have been lucky enough to have travelled throughout the UK, Europe, Africa, India, and the USA and my list continues to grow.
I am one of those people who when I travel, always has a story to tell, from crazy nightclub bar crawls in Mallorca to being taken to a desert by a taxi driver with my sister instead of our hotel in Tunisia getting ready to channel my inner Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills from Taken.
I now document my adventures through my travel writing, photography, videography and podcasting.
Having worked within the travel industry for 20 years I see travel from both sides of the coin, as an industry professional and as a travel lover. I believe in providing travel content that covers all travel because why spend hours searching online anywhere else?
UK Foodie and Recipe Content Creator
I love trying food from all around the world and I love to recreate recipes with my own take on food from around the world.
I regularly create recipes and for January 2024 I will be creating a world food tour series which you can read more about in the food section of the blog as well as written recipes I will also create videos for my YouTube and 30-second videos for my Instagram and TikTok.
Gadgets and Accessories for Travel and Cooking Content Creator
No Travel or food blog would be complete without a section on those handy items to help you with travelling and cooking, but not at the same time. But I do love my gadgets and accessories and I am always looking for fun stuff to use at home and on my travels.
UK-Based Content Creator
I am a London girl born and bred and this is where I am based unless I am travelling. I love to visit new places, new adventures, and experiences.
Thank you for joining me on my adventures.
