Welcome to The Historian Traveller!
My name is Laura. I am originally from the sunny Sicily in Italy but currently living in the UK. As you probably already suspected I am a historian! Specifically, I recently obtained a PhD in History (which is about medieval travels, btw!).
I started travelling since I was 17 and never stopped since then! Although, after reaching an economic independence from my parents, my journeys became longer and better planned than those organised when I was just a teenager. Travel and being in contact with different and new cultures has always been an essential part of my life long before this was considered a trendy lifestyle.
Before starting blogging, I dedicated myself to photography and you may have seen my Instagram handle @thehistoriantraveller , which to me has always represented the perfect communion for the things I like most: photography, travel and writing.
I travel as much as I can in between work and I always try to get the most of every travel experience I have. I previously worked as a content creator for a travel company but, at one point, I became tired of producing contents for someone else and I decided to invest on me and in to what I believe is the actual essence of travel: to understand others’ people culture and learn from them something new, something you can’t find in any guide or book you have read before.
The Historian Traveller is the result of what I think is important to know and discover while on a journey. You will see the culture, history and customs of places. You will find itineraries, stories and photographs and experiences reflecting how important is to know what you see and how beautiful it is to discover the many things we share with other people and places and the many others we still have to learn about.
I hope you will enjoy the journey.
