About Me

Hello!

I’m Sophie. The girl behind Luggage Tags & Ticket Stubs.

By day, i’m a current affairs and travel journalist based in London. By night, I am the girl behind this blog.

In a previous life I lived in China and Hong Kong.

I love everything about travel from the classy hotels to the fun hotels.

Music

As you have probably guessed to the title, I really like going to live shows when I can.

I’m hoping as time progresses in Beijing I can catch as much live music as possible. My favourite album is Elephant by The White Stripes and my favourite band are The Killers.

Travel

The other love of mine is travelling of course. What’s my favourite city? A toss up between Hong Kong and Nashville. They’re both great in their completely different ways.

I bring my readers advice on how to travel in an exciting way and make the most of your trips. I also give advice for those wanting to get into the journalism industry and write a lot about what it’s like to be a freelance writer.

My readers’ average age is 22-35 and they come from a range of places including the UK, America, Australia and Hong Kong.

I have worked with a range of brands and partnered with them on some great projects that I am incredibly proud of. Brands I have worked with include Expedia, Mandarin Oriental, Conrad hotels, Netflights and Flight Centre.
