Travel has given me freedom, love, and happiness.
Welcome to my travel blog! My name is Camille and I am a 29-year-old traveler originally from France. I’m the author of Crafty Explorer, an eco-travel enthusiast and a long-term budget traveler. I was born and raised in France, where I’ve lived a good part of my life. I caught the travel bug in my early twenties, and since then I’ve lived in Germany, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, and traveled to 25+ countries. Three years ago, I was lucky enough to meet my soulmate in Australia, and we have been traveling together since then. His name is Robin, and I find him to be a very good subject for my photos, so you might see quite a few pictures of him in my blog posts!
In 2018, I went back home after spending 2 years traveling Oceania and South East Asia. I spent a few weeks visiting my family in France and stayed in Turkey for three months. I am now in Canada, where I quite enjoy a more settled life. I’m using this time to develop my skills and live from my second passion: jewelry making. I create copper electroformed pendants using semi-precious gemstones. I make new pieces every week, so if you’re interested, visit the shop section of my blog or click here to see my jewelry!
Travel helped me discover who I was and what I wanted from life.
My goal is to travel to as many countries as I can, taking all the time I need. I’m what you can call a slow-traveler. I have a lifetime to travel our beautiful world, discover new cultures and ways of life. In fact, exploring new places and living abroad are my favorite things in the world. I always travel on a budget, and I travel everywhere with a daily budget between $20 and $50 depending on where I am.
I try to travel in the most sustainable way possible. I’m passionate about our world, wildlife, protecting our environment and living green. My aim is to help you understand why sustainability is important, and how you can easily change your travel habits to make the world a better place for future generations.

This blog is a way for me to connect with people and to share my unique lifestyle. From living abroad to traveling the world on a (tight) budget, I will share all my adventures with you.
