Emily Luxton is an award-winning writer and travel blogger on a mission to explore the world through deeper, more intelligent travel. In an attempt to really get to know the world, Emily seeks out adventure, cultural exchanges, food experiences and more whenever she travels. A lover of the great outdoors, sunsets, good food, and the odd bit of luxury, her travel styles vary from trip to trip, but the hunt for a good story is always the same.
Originally from the south coast of England, Emily is currently living in Guernsey with her partner and travelling regularly. Her blog, Emily Luxton Travels, blends reviews and how-to guides with more personal travel narratives, which – she hopes – go a little deeper than a holiday diary as she constantly tries to find and portray the unique personality of each place she visits. Emily’s latest online venture, BackpackSouthAmerica.com, is an in-depth guide to travelling South America on a backpacker budget, and includes reviews, informative guides, packing lists, and much more. Her work has been published in many online publications, and she has won numerous travel writing competitions including Wanderlust Magazine’s Travel Blog of the Year 2014 and DFDS Seaways Best Travel Blog 2015. So far, Emily has travelled to 19 countries, favouring slow, long-term travel – and repeat visits to countries she really wants to connect with – over collecting passport stamps.
