Lauren Juliff is a freelance travel writer and full-time traveler who has been exploring the world on a permanent basis since 2011.
Lauren spent the majority of her college years attempting to balance student life with a burning desire to explore the world. When she wasn't studying she was either saving up for future travel or making use of student discounts and jetting off around Europe.
After graduating in 2011, Lauren left England on a one-way ticket and is still traveling the world with no plans to return. She has spent time living in Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam and the United States and has currently visited over 65 countries across five continents.
Lauren has walked on the Great Wall of China and explored the ruins of Angkor Wat, camped under the stars in the Sahara Desert and hiked across a glacier in New Zealand. She has eaten duck tongue in Taiwan, lizard in Vietnam, kangaroo in Australia and cockroaches in Laos. She learnt to surf in Bali, rode a camel in Morocco, flew in a hot air balloon over Slovenia and sailed a yacht around the coast of Turkey.
There is no better time to travel than when you are a student. This is the one time in life when you'll likely be free of commitment and responsibility, and with plenty of time to see the world. I'll provide you with helpful tips and advice, share the hottest student discounts and help you work past your fears to discover the amazing world we live in.
