My Story

Hi I am El, lovely to meet you!

About El On The Move

My philosophy for El On The Move is to think about you, my dear reader, as my best friend. If my best friend were to travel somewhere, what would they like to know? What should I tell them to make sure they have the best time? What should I say to make sure they are as safe as possible? This is my way of thinking about how and what I choose to share with you.

My Travel Style

I took my first solo trip at the age of 18, I caught the travel bug young! I have travelled to over 50 countries and have a wealth of knowledge to share with you. Every place on this blog I have personally visited and I do not write about any locations I have not been to. I believe in honesty and will always give you my truthful opinion.

I try to find places off the beaten track and not on the mass tourist trail. I prefer budget accommodation spots and local restaurants. I love learning as much as I can about the local culture of any country I visit. You are a lot more likely to find me in a hostel or campsite than a fancy hotel.

About Me

I am El creator of El On The Move and I currently travel full time and I love it!

I grew up in London but have moved a lot in my adult life, before travelling full time, I spent 3 years living in the south of France.

I am an aerospace engineer who designed planes for many years but at the end of 2020 I decided I would prefer to be flying on a plane than designing one. I took the leap and I currently am on a ‘career pause’ exploring our fantastic planet.

I love to find the fun in everything so please follow along as I search for as much joy as possible!
