Travel & Lust is dedicated to sharing the unearthed gems of boutique travel and has a 'slow living' concept rooted within the philosophy. This form of travelling is an intimate, personalised, and an eclectic way of venturing around the globe. A real opportunity to intertwine with local life and connect.

I have enjoyed some intimate B&Bs just as much, if not more than grand hotels, which is why we focus on a variety of accommodation that is reflective and somewhat a homage to the area which it is located in. This includes rural houses, boutique apartments, guesthouses and hotels. The Hotel Reviews page is a list of my favourite stays whilst travelling, whilst the Black Book is a simple directory of boutique accommodation worldwide.

People are very much a part of our travel experiences; the interactions that make (or don't make your day), the sense of style, gesticulations, accents and so on. This can be explored further in our Notes page which also features interviews, boutique stores, events and more.

I hope you enjoy the content as much as the team have curating it.
