About

Hello, fellow wanderers! I'm Layne—I'm a writer, a remote product operations executive, and a professional vagabond—travelling a lot of the time since 2000, most of the time since 2014,

and full time since the end of 2015.


By "travelling full time," I mean that I don't have a permanent homebase. I have two suitcases (one large and one small), a rucksack, and a handbag. Everything I own fits in one of those vessels and moves with me every 2-12 weeks. So far I've lived on all seven continents in 55 countries and counting!

Over the years, I've learned how to make good money while I wander, and how to travel lavishly without the extravagant price tag. I started Wanderluxed to share my tricks with everyone else who longs to travel in style.


I'm developing a series of self-guided online travel training courses to teach you everything I know. Join the mailing list to be the first to learn when they're released! I also publish free content on my Instagram and TikTok pages, generally divisible into the following four main categories: 

#travelhacks (for getting around the world in style)
#habitationhacks (for keeping a classy roof over your head whilst you wander)
#moneyhacks (for earning income on the road)
#destinationintel (for local secrets about all the places I've visited)

Welcome!

Qualifications

Why am I qualified to teach travel training courses? In addition to 20+ years and 55 countries' worth of experience travelling like my life depended on it, I've been an IATAN-accredited travel agent for 15 years. I hold a Certified Travel Associate certification and specialist certifications in Sustainable Travel, Egypt, and Costa Rica from the Travel Institute.


I also have seven years of experience building large globally distributed teams of 50+ people for tech companies. Part of my work is leading remote training strategy and setting up fully remote onboarding courses to prepare new hires for their roles. My online training programmes have successfully trained up hundreds of people all over the world. You can check out my LinkedIn profile here.
