30-something Travel and Lifestyle Blogger

My name is Melis and I am living proof that you don't have to be 21 and on a gap year to live life to the full! In 2018 after some big life changes 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 brand new career. 

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. The aim of this blog is to encourage 30-somethings to make their hard earned money go further and see more of the world for less!

My most read post ever is this one: How I afford to travel

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.

If you think we would be a good fit to work together, please send me an email at, or use the contact form below to get in touch. I am also very active on Instagram and Twitter, so feel free to send me a direct message.
