Dawn To Dusk Travels


  Hi There, I'm Louise. 


I've been following my urge to travel since I was young, starting off as the typical Brit abroad in the all-inclusive hotel in Europe, to finding my feet in Asia and trying not to get lonely when I eventually set off on my own.

Nowadays, it's half of my life, I work haphazardly to travel and when I'm not, I'm thinking about it.  I'm too stubborn in wanting to enjoy life to work consistently, take the money and run, and why 4 months seems to be the longest I go for.


The last few years have been spent 'trying' to make it a more permanent thing, being influenced by travel vloggers and digital nomads but having little money and the ability to  procrastinate at every opportunity has left me with questions like "Do I really want to travel all of the time?" and "Why have I not figured this out yet?".  

One thing I do know is that I love to tell stories. If it's not the images we see that make our jaws drop then it is the words we read that transport us to another place. On Dawntodusktravels I simply want to inspire some good old fashioned wanderlust, bringing back the real world hidden behind the gloss and glamour of travel these days.

I’m not really one to budget or plan my spending, however, I do watch my money because I know how easy it is to watch it vanish before your eyes on seemingly nothing!

Halfway into our week-long trip, which we had planned to make happen around my birthday, we decided to do separate things that morning. It had been nearly four years since I’d seen my Malaysian friend, even then it was onl...

Have you ever gotten on a bus and told the driver or ticket collector where you’re headed, and then gotten off at the wrong stop? Or, because the bus sign isn’t in English or doesn’t even have a sign, you end up in the bac...
