Hey! I’m Laura, a wandering blonde who recently returned to the UK after spending over two years living and travelling in Vancouver, British Columbia. Now located in London, I’m chasing new adventures both within the Big Smoke and much further afield.
What Laura Did Next is an informative travel and lifestyle blog that covers travel around a 9-5 lifestyle.
Lucky enough to be both a British and a Canadian citizen, I now consider myself a mishmash of both cultures, and I consider that the very best of both worlds! As well as covering the best bits of Canada, I’ll also be focusing on the best things to do, eat, and drink in London and beyond.
When I’m not busy at work in digital marketing, you’ll find me planning my next trip away.
I love exploring new places, the sunshine, and doing all the eating and drinking I possibly can along the way. I really enjoyed making exploring a new home abroad and all the exciting places, even if living overseas wasn’t always the easiest pathway to choose.
I cover all aspects of travel, adventure, and culture, whether that be in and around my hometown of London, or further afield, exploring the beaches of Australia.
What Laura Did Next continues to grow since its launch six years ago with loyal readers from over 100 countries around the world.
I started this blog in 2014 to document all of my travels and adventures, and I hope that you enjoy reading it too. For me, it’s a corner of the internet to share my journey, discoveries, and thoughts, and I’d really love to know all about yours too. So, if you fancy reading more, hop along for the ride!
Cheltenham, in the heart of the Cotswolds, UK.
I work in digital marketing for ecommerce brands, across both European and North American markets. I’ve worked with huge retailers like Ebay and Macy’s to help them grow online. Retail and marketing are two of my biggest passions, so I’m lucky they’re also a career!
I’m currently based between London for work, and back home in Cheltenham.
Undoubtedly Canada – ocean, mountains, desert (yep, you read that right), the lot!
Hawai’i – particularly on the island of Maui. They’re incredibly beautiful, and mostly deserted. There are volcanic black sand beaches, and golden beaches with the most incredible colour of ocean.
Mexico! There’s the most insane, brightly coloured architecture in Mexico City, to the spectacular beaches of Quintana Roo. With all this natural beauty, it doesn’t make it too hard to get a great shot!
Antigua in the Caribbean – not only is it an incredibly beautiful country, it’s also super luxurious. Check in to one of the all-inclusive hotels and you’ll come back feeling like a new person!
Such a tough question as I’m a huge foodie, but probably Italy. I could quite literally feast on cacio e pepe and pizzas until the cows come home.
Probably Hong Kong – it really blew my mind! Everything from the culture to the people to the food is extremely different to anywhere else I’ve visited, and I loved exploring the phenomenal city.
The USA! There really is something for everyone across its fifty unique states. From roadtripping the West Coast to flying over the Grand Canyon, you can choose an adventure holiday to suit you.
