Experiencing more. Travelling more. Boating more. Glamping more. Camping more.
Hi! I’m Gill, and since 2018, I have been sharing my passion for everything travelling, boating, glamping, camping and just being on or by the water ever since. Thanks for dropping by to find out more about me!
What is this blog all about?
After moving to Australia from the UK in 2015, I found myself wanting to travel more and share my experiences with you, as inspiration and ideas on how you could do the same. Whether it be for exploring the world, venturing around your own country or just having those extra weekend getaways to enjoy that sense of freedom. Even in your backyard if you wanted to!
From getting out on the water to glamping near the coast, I’ll be posting the best of, how to’s and reviews of things experienced – good and bad!
The best destination guides and advice!
Visiting places closer to home, to begin with, I’ll share the best destination guides with you. Then as I can travel further, I’ll share even more!
These aren’t your typical destination guides though! They are water-based. Whether it be the ocean, lakes or rivers; water will always be the absolute focus. I’m not a history buff, and whilst I enjoy finding out about the culture, I don’t necessarily go looking for it! Instead, just wanting to get out on the water and see it all from a different perspective.
If you’re looking for boat trips, tours or water activities in a certain area, often the information is all over the place, hard to find, out of date or the link to the websites to book yourself in are broken. It’s frustrating.
So instead, Travel With No Anchor is about building the best current and up-to-date lists and guides on how to enjoy your experience and get the most out of it. From how to get on the water, your boat licence, boat trips, water sports, activities and fishing, to grabbing a bite to eat on the waterfront, camping on the beach and the best accommodation with a view. I also want to share with you the best deals and where to find them to get the best value for money.
What is the ‘no anchor’ all about?
No anchor, to me, means being constantly on the move, looking for the next new adventure. It also represents the water and boating side of the blog. Please don’t take it too literally though, especially when out in the boat fishing!
It also has a ‘metaphorical’ meaning as well. Anchors in life, such as lack of savings, mortgages repayments, jobs, fear, insecurities and lack of direction can all weigh you down to prevent you from doing what you really want.
We all have anchors, some you can lift and carry without too many worries, but some can really get in the way. I’ll share what has been my anchors along the way and what I’ve done to work with them, rather than against them, being able to work towards my dream of experiencing more and helping you do the same.
I also a big believer in the Minimalist lifestyle. It has helped me really understand what is important, what I value most and have made some serious cash savings along the way. As well as reduced stress levels!
Thanks for reading and from me to you… Live life and experience more!
