Exploring the world and learning about new places has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I can often be found looking at maps, checking flight connections, browsing guidebooks and reading up on unfamiliar cultures, faraway places and geopolitical anomalies. I love planning my next trip almost as much as going on it.

I grew up in County Galway in the west of Ireland, but I am currently based on the opposite side of the world in Melbourne, Australia. I studied Visual Communication before working for years as a graphic designer. I currently work as a UX/UI designer.

About CeolTravels.com
