Holly Tuppen

Holly's green travel career kicked off in 2005 when she bought a giant map and started planning a circumnavigation of the world without flying. After three years of intense saving, it was time to pedal out of London to hop on tandems, sailing boats, cargo ships and jeeps around the Northern Hemisphere...

52,000 miles, 473 vehicles and 20 months later, Holly has completed the challenge. Now she hopes to spread green travel joy here in the UK. No holiday is complete unless the journey is as fun as the destination and even better if it involves bikes, boats and getting back to nature. 

Whilst travelling the world Holly kept up a blog, www.3mphroundtheworld.com, alongside writing for numerous publications including Real Travel, The Guardian and Geogaphical Magazine.

We're delighted that Holly has now joined greentraveller, she'll be contributing to our blog - in particular writing about festivals and reviewing green places to stay in the UK and France.
