As part of our 2014 celebration of travel bloggers, we spoke to Becky better known as English Mum to find out more about her love of travel and cruising.
1. When was English Mum founded?
English Mum was founded nearly nine years ago when we moved to Ireland for my husband's job.
2. Why did you start the blog?
I didn't know a soul in Dublin and was quite lonely initially. The blog started out as a bit of a letter home to my friends and family and just developed from there, really. I started writing about the dinners I was cooking and the holidays and days out we had, and never really stopped!
3. What is your favourite thing about travel writing?
I'm a natural oversharer so it's kind of an extension of me, really. I get to visit incredible places and nothing makes me happier than being able to tell everyone about it.
4. What is your favourite cruise destination?
I'm not sure I can pick one! I love Barcelona as there's so much to see and do, but for beach slobbing it has to be St Maarten for the perfect white beaches and blue, blue sea.
5. What is on your travel bucket list?
I'm desperate to go to Australia. And Hawaii, oh, and Canada.. and the Far East. I could go on.
6. What would you be doing if you weren’t writing about travel?
I honestly don't know. I'd probably work in the travel industry in some other way. I'm so lucky to do what I love for a living. I can't think of anything I'd rather do.
