An Interview with The Well-Travelled Postcard

Sometimes you meet people and just hit it off straight away.

I met Virginia over a year ago now when I first started working in PR and almost instantly it was like talking to an old friend.

Her blog is lovely, one of kind and driven by her real love for travel, books and people.

If you haven't read it, I strongly recommend that you do.
In the meantime, you can find out more below in an exclusive interview.

Where are you from and why do you love where you live?

I grew up in Hampshire but since 18 I've been living all over the place really! Chile, Italy, Spain, Exeter, London... Right now though I'm living in Madrid for a couple of months, but I consider London as my real home. London is an incredible city but is missing one key ingredient: the sea. I loved growing up near to the sea on the south coast and I often get pangs of longing for the scent of salty air and the squawks of seagulls. And Madrid is even further from the sea than London!

When did you start your blog and why?

I started The Well-Travelled Postcard straight after my final exams of university. I studied Spanish, Italian & Portuguese at university so had spent my third year abroad and had been doing a lot of travelling. I knew that the working world would give me much less free time for travelling, so I wanted to use my blog as a way to travel vicariously and to stop myself being swallowed up by the London bubble! In my teens I had wanted to be a writer/journalist, and my passion is travel, so starting a travel blog seemed like the perfect way to do both these things.

Describe your blog in three words

Explore. Dream. Discover. (a Mark Twain quote about travel)

How do we know each other?

You got in touch after stumbling upon my travel blog and we bonded over a Starbucks and both our stories of living in Spain! You used to live in Zamora and Barcelona, and I in Córdoba and now in Madrid! I instantly hit it off with anyone who has the same love of travelling and living abroad as I do (and I can talk for hours and hours on the topic of travelling, as it's invariably the topic I think about the most) so we had plenty to talk about!
