About Lara Lain

One of the first sunsets of my travels. January 2014. Koh Phangan, Thailand.


Thank you for visiting Larasstory.

… I’m Lara Lain. Born in 1985, I am proudly from Pembroke – a small, beautiful town in West Wales, UK.

I’ve called places like Koh Phi Phi, Thailand ”home”. I’ve ”done a Ski-Season” in Queenstown, New Zealand. I’ve worked for the biggest publishing houses in the world in London and I’ve scouted the whole World TWICE as a solo female traveler on a mission to do and see as much as I could.

I’ve lived a life of stories that I want to share and keep here; for the pure joy of reliving the moment, the fun of telling the tale, for lessons to be learned from and often for inspiration to be sprinkled. Also because I simply love to write!

8 Fast Facts:

* I hold a Masters Degree in English Literature. I specialised in Shakespeare during my four years of study in Cardiff University.

* I (hustled hard!) and worked for six years in London for the biggest publishing brands in the world.

* The Sun, The News of the World, The Times, The Daily Express, Horse & Hound, Nuts magazine, Loaded magazine, Decanter magazine and (of course) LOOK magazine are just a few of the brands I was lucky enough to learn my craft with.

* I was the Marketing Executive at LOOK magazine, Britain’s Best Selling Fashion Weekly, for four years. I won ‘Marketing Executive of the Year’ during this amazing time in my career.

* After London, age 28, I solo travelled and worked in Asia, Australia, Brazil and New Zealand during 2014 – 2016.

* I came back to Sydney in February 2016 and have worked in Digital Marketing since. I see myself as a ‘digital fiend’.

* I love dogs, the Sydney beach life and running.

* I share travel and lifestyle content on Larasstory and aim to sprinkle inspiration and positive energy with my posts.
