Welcome to Travelorlabout, a platform for travel lovers worldwide!
I’m Orla, I’m 26 and i am from lovely little Ireland. Despite growing up in rural Ireland(my hometown is called Ballinamuck- doesn’t get more countryside than that) i have spent more time living abroad than i actually do at home(they apparently call it the travel bug….and hey iv got its BAD!!)
Luckily for me iv called Greece, Australia, London, Vienna and Thailand home since 2011 and dont think for one second that list is going to stop there!
Iv gone on the fastest roller-coaster in the world in Abu Dhabi, dived the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, sea walked the bottom of the ocean in Bali and had a lap dance off a lady-boy in Bangkok(us ladies get lucky too)!
As i go on my endeavors round the globe i work random jobs to fund my wanderlust addictions. I hold a BA in Social Care, but that doesn’t mean i stick to the traditional career path(you should see my exploding resume).
Some of the jobs i have nabbed globally are an extra for an Australian TV series, working at the Grand Prix in Melbourne, a stylist for a luxury fashion brand in London, model for a beach themed photo-shoot in Australia, English language teacher in Thailand and a travel writer for an expat lifestyle magazine. See all the things you can do in the world? If i can do all this, so can you!
Whether you travel solo, with a partner or a bunch of friends(iv tried and tested all three options)…Travelorlabout will cover it all. You will find helpful travel tips, detailed destination guides and unique accommodation options here.
I flashpack and i backpack( i have a suitcase and backpack after all) so you could find me partying like a lunatic in a hostel or sipping cocktails at a luxury getaway! Really i dont care what I’m doing, just once I’m travelling!
One of my favourite things about travelling(apart from new cultures,and endless adventures) is the people you meet along the way. So lets be friends and maybe one day travel buddies..you know you want to!!!
Let me inspire you to travel for more than just two weeks of the year(quite frankly that’s just not enough).
