So this is me: Claire Sturzaker aka @clairesturz
A thirty-something dreamer, traveller and lost soul; wandering the Earth until I find what I’m looking for. A food, drink and life-lover, my wanderlust keeps growing by the day!
This blog began in 2013, as Tales of Barcelona. I moved to Barcelona after having somewhat of a mid-life crisis, and on a cold, wet October day in Manchester, England, I made up my mind & booked my one-way flight for Barcelona!
However, after a couple of years there my feet started to itch once again. This time, South America was calling me. So I decided to quit my job in Barcelona, and booked another one way ticket – this time to Bolivia – and began a journey to discover South America for myself.
Tales of Barcelona became Tales of a Backpacker as I set off on my travels, with a backpack on my back & walking boots on my feet. I began to write about my adventures, as well as tips, tricks and musings about life on the road. I have now returned from South America and have realised I love to write about travel. I want to share the very best locations, attractions and accommodations that offer good value for money in each of the destinations I visit.
I hope this blog inspires other people to travel – I have proved that women over 30 can travel solo too, and if I can do it, so can you!
Happy travels, wherever your feet may take you!
Love Claire xx
