About Me


Welcome to my blog! I’m Lou and I’ve started this blog to document my travels and to provide as much information about the places I’ve been as possible.

I’m currently studying architecture and am getting pretty close to the end when I can finally relax and get travelling in times outside of university summers.


Home – Edinburgh


I started this blog to document my summer travels and any smaller trips in between. In first year I went to America to work with kids at summer camp and in second I went travelling around Spain, Portugal, Croatia and Montenegro. I’ve also managed to escape off to Iceland, Italy and Germany so all in all I’ve done quite well travelling whilst at university!



I actually want to treat this blog as just part of the website ‘aletterfromlou.com‘. I also want to provide good information on the places I’ve been and the things I’ve done. I want this whole thing to be helpful. I haven’t managed to develop these areas but hopefully when I have more time I will.

Most importantly, I want this to be full of memories, photos and stories that I can keep looking back on in years to come.



As soon as I hand in my last bit of coursework (around the 10th of May) I’m hoping to go to Germany for a few weeks. This will be followed by a holiday with my mum to Parga in Greece which I’m so excited for.

I’m then hoping to work for a few months whilst also working on my TEFL qualification and enjoying summer in Edinburgh and celebrating graduating and 21st birthdays.

From about mid October to mid December I’m hoping to take a trip somewhere different. At the moment I’m looking into Belize but I’m open to other ideas!

2018 will be fab.


Thank you very much for visiting my website – stay tuned for more letters!


From Lou
