Welcome to Libby’s Bytes; AKA Libbytes! A place where I will share my interests, thoughts, opinions, tips and tricks. The main themes are centred around my personal hobbies, interests and skills and include travel, vegan cooking, nail art, DIY and gardening.

My travel blogging began after backpacking through South East Asia in 2014. Back then, my blog was just for me, a place to return to regularly and keep the memories alive. And to some extent it still is… My travel blog is more focused on experiences and stories rather than places and lists to tick-off.

I am now based in Manchester, a city I love. My partner, Peter, is vegan and so I enjoy to cooking plant-based meals at home. I hope to post as many simple and home-cooked vegan recipes as possible to combat the dreaded question every vegan hears… “but what do you eat?”!  I also recently became slightly addicted to nail stamping, primarily as something to do when travelling away from home with work. Finally, although Pete and I only have the standard 5 weeks of annual leave per year, I still (just about) manage to keep the travel blogging going…

So I decided to make this blog, a place I can write about more than just one thing; basically anything I feel like!

I hope you enjoy my eclectic blog. Please feel free to get in touch!
