About me

Hi, and welcome to my blog!

In summer of 2017 I made the decision to turn down a job offer, and instead take a gap year after finishing school. This decision was the best one of my life and I have completely fallen in love with the world of travel. Last year I was able to cross 7 countries off my bucket list and this year I hope to visit even more.

So who am I?

Millie Dowling

My name is Amelia, but I’ve gone by Millie since I was 11. I am 19 years old and live in Sussex, England. When I’m home my interests include reading, hiking and climbing, cooking and binge watching Netflix. I’m passionate about veganism, the environment and public health- so you can expect to see posts about some of these topics!

I’m also a crazy dog lady. My friends all laugh at me for having to stop and say hello to EVERY single dog I meet when out and about. I’m a proud dog mummy to Aurora (or Rosie, or Rory, or Ro), my Tibetan terrier x collie.


I went vegan in March 2017 and there’s no going back for me! I love trying vegan food in different places, especially places where you might not expect to find any! I hope I can use this blog as a platform to promote a vegan lifestyle, and offer advice to anyone looking to transition to a more compassionate, sustainable way of living.



I’m not entirely sure yet where this blog will take me, but have a look around, and I hope you enjoy:)
