About The Travelling Guru


The Travelling Guru was founded by ourselves, Tasha and Brett, a couple of 20-somethings from the UK. We have been together since 2012, which is the same year we began travelling the world together. Since then, we have been hooked on exploring new places and taking on new adventures all over the globe. We enjoy travelling as a couple on a budget but also love the finer things in life. Therefore, our mission is to do what we call “living the high life while travelling on a budget”.

In other words, when travelling our goal is to cut unnecessary costs so that we can enjoy a few luxuries here and there. We recently founded The Travelling Guru to provide a platform to share our experiences and more importantly, our tried and tested tips and resources, with you so you can also live the high life while travelling on a  budget. As we are both passionate about and involved in technology (read more on this below), we are also keen to link this with our passion for travel and so many of our posts are focused around Travel Tech.

The Travelling Guru is focused around providing you with the best advice, tips and resources for FREE, while also sharing some of our adventures and photography. We hope you find something useful here on our blog and you can read more about our individual backgrounds and things we do around blogging below. We also provide numerous ways you can Work With Us based on our experience and expertise.

About Tasha AKA ‘The Blogger, Researcher & Writer”


Previously, I gained a 1st class BA (hons) Tourism Management in 2016 before gaining a fully funded scholarship to study for my PhD that year. I recently finished my PhD, which explored the use of Virtual Reality (VR) for Retail Marketing. I am now an academic researcher investigating the use of immersive technologies (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality etc.) in tourism, retail and healthcare industries. Alongside my day job, I am also a freelance writer and website designer. You can check out my professional profile here and also find my research projects and publications here.
