Ella McKendrick in Maldives

Hi, I'm Ella!

I've always had a strong desire to travel the world and immerse myself in different cultures.

Sustainability and wildlife conservation have always been my passion, the driving force behind my travels. Through sharing my travels, I aim to spread awareness of eco-friendly projects and causes, which help local communities and native wildlife.

On my blog I aim to share tips on how to travel sustainably, as well as providing eco-friendly travel recommendations, from hotels you can support to community projects which you can get involved in.

My travels had led me to some interesting places! You can follow my experiences here or on my Youtube channel.
