Imagine being paid to travel and experience the best the world has to offer.
As a travel writer, that’s exactly what you do. It’s a top portable career pick for many expats, because when you’re writing about the world it doesn’t matter where you call home.
Lucy Culpepper has been a travel writer for over a decade, and she manages to keep a very busy schedule.
Originally from the UK, Lucy’s also an experienced traveler and a serial expat. She’s lived in Central America, France, Spain and England. She’s traveled throughout the Americas, Asia, Europe and even Iceland.
Recently I sat down with Lucy to talk about travel writing. I spoke with her about how she got her start as a travel writer, and how she balances the fun of travel with the work of completing her assignments.
