HELLO AND WELCOME! I’M LAURA (aka Lulu)

You will find my blog to be more than just a travel blog. I’m always on the hunt for something off the beaten path, an intriguing story or a gorgeous location to share. Thank you for joining me here!

LIFE AS AN EXPAT

When I was little, I dreamed of becoming a photojournalist for National Geographic. My husband and I lived abroad off and on since high school. We met in college, married, and moved to England with our kids for four years. I documented our time on the blog Happy Homemaker UK. We then relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area. I merged the HHUK blog with a new blog, Travel With Lulu. Currently, I am writing a book and travel internationally regularly.
