Hi, I’m Elle-Rose, the editor, photographer, writer (and traveller!) behind The World and Then Some.
On this blog you’ll find travel tips, advice and reviews for many destinations, which I hope will inspire you to book your own trip or set off on your own adventure. The World and Then Some is a blog for people who are jet-setters, luxury-lovers and sun-seekers. I’m also a freelance social media manager and the editor of PSOOTD a plus size fashion blog, so feel free to get in touch if you’d like to work together!
What kind of traveller am I?
My husband Pad and I like to travel far and wide – and we’ve grown to love luxury and travel comfortably. After travelling together around the world for a year (budgeting and saving), our travel style has grown-up just like our relationship has. At this stage in our lives, we’d rather have a week in a luxury hotel, than have 3 weeks in a hostel.
On this blog you’ll find older blog posts with great tips on budgeting and long-term travel, but you’ll also find newer blog posts about one-off vacations in high-end hotels and resorts – as well reviews and tips for luxury travel.
And then, of course, you’ll find wider advice pieces and other topics from my wonderful team of writers and contributors!
How old are you?
I’m 29 years old. Skidding towards 30!
How did you start this blog?
I started this blog in September 2012, when my boyfriend (now fiancé!) Paddy Moogan and I set off on a ‘Round The World’ adventure. After a few (very long flights) we arrived at our first destination – New Zealand! After falling head over heels for NZ, and living there for 6 pretty incredible months (Queenstown – to be precise) the next stage of our journey began.
What was the next stage? Another half year of globe trotting – covering pretty much everywhere on our way home to London. We stopped off in Australia for a month, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and the USA.
Since returning back home to London, we’ve been travelling and vacationing as much as we possibly can ever since. On this blog you’ll find just about all information you need for any of the destinations we’ve visited…. as well as photos, random stories, reviews and other bits and bobs.
Do you do blogging full time?
Actually, no. My full-time job is actually as a social media manager. I also do freelance writing for many online and print publications which is a great way to spread the word about my blog, but also make money doing something I adore.
Need a freelance social media manager or a copywriter? I am a full time freelance social media manager and blog writer – so feel free to get in touch if you’d like to chat about a freelance social media project.
I also write for other places too!
