Welcome to The Travel Beast.

My name is Chris, I’m 25 and I currently live in Windermere in the stunning English Lake District.

This is The Travel Beast, in time (hopefully the next 18-24 months when I have finally finished saving and planning) will turn into my base, along with my Youtube channel of the same name for my round the world adventure and a source of knowledge, tales and tips for fellow travellers, for more information on that plan visit The Quest!

The short version; I plan to save about £10,000 and spend £2,000 on flights and a few bits of equipment before I leave so that I can blog and vlog the whole lot, but not just as your average budget traveller, having worked for the past 8 years as a Hotel General Manager I will use my expertise to bring something different to the Travel Blogging community. I intend to share my full journey with you from, planning and conception to execution and everything in between.

I have chosen to go with the name The Travel Beast as I am often described as Chewbacca or The Bear.

 Seeing as I am not the sort of person to set off having not done any research and will not go strolling around the world expecting a travel blog to immediately (if ever) make me a passive income, so I will also be using a few other sites to help boost my income stream, which I will no doubt shamelessly link to when they are finished.

So until then please settle in, look around and make yourself at home, it is going to be a long ride!

See you on the beaches.

Chris – The Travel Beast.
