30-something Travel and Lifestyle Blogger

My name is Melis and I currently live in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK. I am lucky to have dual nationality, living in Istanbul, Turkey until I was 4. I have taken flights from a very young age and different cultures are a huge part of my life: I think that's where my huge desire to travel came from! My most read post ever is this one: How I afford to travel

In 2018 I moved to Singapore for 8 months and explored 10 new countries. I started Melis Living and loved blogging about expat and travel life.  In September 2018 I moved back to Newcastle-upon-Tyne and settled down with a house and new job.

These days you are likely to find me either searching Sky Scanner for flights from Newcastle to 'everywhere', or hunting down the best deals on new restaurants and days out near home.

I always encourage people to enjoy their life, finding luxury for less and good deals on experiences wherever they can!

Working with me

I work with travel and lifestyle brands on collaborations when they are a good fit, and I will always write an honest review. Please feel free to check out my media kit here.
