Travel writer Katy Clarke was bitten by the wander bug as a teenager and has not stopped since.
She always seeks out local cultural and food experiences in the destinations she visits as these have been the highlights of her travels so far.
A mum of twin pre-schoolers, she loves travelling with her family, husband and friends and believes the shared memories from these trips are priceless. Read more about Katy from her IQPlanner profile.
Why did you start travel blogging? How long have you been doing it?
Like many others, I started travel blogging 2 years ago as a creative outlet and a way to keep friends and family at home in Australia up to date on our travels in Europe.
I later realised that I could help people plan their own memorable trips by sharing what I had learnt over 20+ years of travel.
Name your top 3 most memorable places?
Capri, Italy. I visited there for the first time this year and the island is more beautiful than you can imagine. Its natural beauty, relaxed atmosphere and incredible views are the things dreams are made of.
Tasmania, Australia. The little island off the bottom of Australia’s mainland is home to some of the world’s most pristine wilderness, amazing food and wine and more recently a world class museum – the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart
Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Visiting Java and Yogyakarta was one of my first travel experiences abroad.
The culture was so different to my own and I was mesmerised by the ancient temples of Borobodur and Prambanan.
What’s the best thing about being a travel blogger?
Meeting new people, going on adventures and writing and photographing them.
Sometimes I get paid to do this and it really feels like I’m living the dream.
And the worst?! (if there is one)
Discovering all the amazing places in the world I want to visit and realising that there’ll never be enough time to experience them the way I’d like to.
Give your top tip to a blogger starting out
Define your goals and know that there’s no such thing as an overnight success.
Most of the top travel bloggers have been active for around 10 years and have refined their approach based on their experience during this time.
Hotel freebies: take ‘em’ or leave ‘em’?
Only if I’m definitely going to use them. I’m trying to be more conscious of waste and the environment.
What’s at the top of your list for destinations this year?
Always Italy but I’m excited to be returning to Croatia and visiting Slovenia for the first time.
Why should people subscribe to your page?
Our team is constantly on the lookout for unique and off the beaten track experiences to share with our followers.
We want to help people have the most memorable travel experiences whether that be in classic destinations like London or Paris. Or in secret corners of the Italian countryside.
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve eaten on your travels?
I recently ate donkey on a trip to Brescia in Italy. It’s the core component of many dishes in this region and has a strong meaty taste.
The dish I tried was slow cooked for hours and the meat was succulent and delicious.
Name a place, city, or country where you feel happiest?
Although I love travelling, home is where my heart is. My hometown Melbourne is the place I feel most content, energetic and excited about the future.
Drop me a line if you’re visiting my beautiful city. It’s important to me that visitors have a great time.
Where’s your next adventure?
Back to Amsterdam for some family time.
We’re having a bit of a reunion with my brother and his family who are visiting from Africa and my parents travelling from Australia.
