I have been working on this collab post over the past few days with the lovely Sophie Amelia over the last few days and it’s been a pleasure to work with her. Below is an introduction piece about Sophie Amelia that she wrote herself.
https://sophie-amelia.com/ is an honest lifestyle blog writing reviews, recommendations and just general tips to help you lovely people out. I will never write about something that I don’t believe in just because it’s what people want to hear, however I love that people actually take the time to read my content and enjoy it; and hopefully my posts can answer questions.
I’m a 20-something pizza lover, wine drinker from Hull, who loves long walks and drives out. Nothing gets me more excited than planning my next adventure – so when I was given the opportunity to do a collaboration with another blogger around this topic, I was so excited!
Kate has been a great blogger to work with, and I would love to work with her again in the future.
1. How many countries have you visited?
Sophie Amelia: I’m not sure off the top of my head, but from what I can remember approximately 15? This number needs making bigger!
Kate: Just two! Hungary and Italy!
2. Which was your favourite country?
Sophie Amelia: It’s got to be Thailand, there was just something about it I can’t put my finger on. The food, the culture, the scenery – I spent nearly 2 months there, and I’m itching to go back!
Kate: Definitely Italy! We stayed in Lake Garda and then travelled to places like Verona and Venice. I loved it. There was something so magical about it! The scenery was amazing, so many different streets, mountains and flowers!
3. What 3 places are next on your bucket list to visit?
Sophie Amelia: Santorini, Italy and more parts of the USA.
Kate: London, Paris and Seville
4. What is your go-to travel necessity?
Sophie Amelia: It’s got to be a camera of some sort. Whether it’s my iPhone, Canon, or an underwater camera. Snapping photos on holiday is a must!
Kate: My camera too!! I take a crazy amount of photographs on holidays! Probably a book and notebook too with a pen to keep me occupied on long journeys!
5. Where are you going on your next travels?
Sophie Amelia: I’m heading off for a weekend in Amsterdam in November for my birthday, it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go!
Kate: I have no idea, I’ve no plans!! I’d love to go to London next and travel around the UK.
6. What is your go to summer holiday outfit?
Sophie Amelia: I need to find a summery, floaty dress for every holiday. Without fail.
Kate: Simple shorts and t- shirt with my favourite runners and a bracelet!
7. What’s the best thing you’ve ever bought in another country?
Sophie Amelia: This is so hard, as I love to bring stuff back with me. It’s got to be between my beloved red furry gilet from NYC, my hand-made customised jewelled ring from India, and my underwater phone pouch I bought in Mexico.
Me: A small mask based on the Commedia Del Arte Style masks which I bought in Italy last year and it is hanging on my wall.
Thank you for reading our collab post, I hope you like it!
Until the weekend!
