About me

Yo! My name is LC. I’m in my late twenties and hail from Australia.

Ah, what’s the site about?

Travel with a conscience and a sense of humour.

Sustainable travel can be a somewhat dry subject to cover, so the aim here on Birdgehls is to be as environmentally friendly as possible, whilst inspiring a few laughs. Hopefully.

My speciality is travelling and living without using too much plastic – I dedicated first a year to this cause and now have extended it to a lifetime.

Projects are fun, so this year I’m exploring my home country of Australia, trying to see as much of Oz as possible, whilst working a full-time job and having no darn car (so, easily said than done as Australian public transport is kinda sucky). If I’m not travelling in parts of Australia, I’m sharing my cultural musings about the place.

I write rather prolifically about the UK and my favourite destinations are the Nordics – places like the Faroe Islands and Svalbard. I’m not a real Aussie – I love the cold.


Birdgehls started in a living room out in Zone 5 of West London in 2014. I’d just moved to the UK’s capital and needed a side project to stop me going loopy in between applying for job, after job, after job…

I started up the site with one of my best friends, who was living in New York at the time. We blogged together, until other commitments ate up her time. Now it’s just me here, on my lonesome.

Why the name? The original inspiration came from this haunting song, written by Antony & The Johnsons. Also, because birds are rad. The name remains pluralised, in honour of my pal and the wonderful friendship we have together.

If there’s anything else you’d like to know, please feel free to contact me via hello@birdgehls.com. I can also be found online at all the usual suspects: Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

Please note that I do not accept guest posts on this blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
