Bee – A rock climbing, gadget-loving programmer that loves to travel and writing about her encounters…
The name’s Bianca but most people call me Bee, Bia and some are crazy enough to push the “boundaries” and call me Bumble Bee, Queen Bee, The Bee. Most days when someone actually calls me using my actual name I am almost ready to give them a ”what the hell did you just call me?” look and a second later I am like “oh that is my name…” oops!
Born and raised in Lusaka, Zambia (Southern-Central Africa). I moved to London in my early teens and it’s been my home from home ever since.
How ItsAllBee Came To Be
To travel is to simply live! I am a firm believer that travel adventures doesn’t have to be expensive. It also starts right from at home, so you will naturally find travel tips from both home and away. My blog is a gateway to all those that want to see the world, whether in heels or hiking boot.
My mom and most of my family used to travel around Africa a lot when I was younger, so I always knew I wanted to explore as my sisters and my brothers did when I was young.
Having graduated and worked within the IT industry my role required a lot of travel so when I wasn’t travelling for work I was travelling for leisure just to get away from the stressful work-life. ItsAllBee Travel Blog started out as a way to showcase where I was and keep friends and family updated on my travels and before long, the blog had its own following. Here we are a decade later and the blog has grown to over 100k readers a month.
Style Of Travel You Can Expect To Find On The Travel Blog
I am originally from Zambia, now living in London with family and friends scattered around the world. From the USA to Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy and beyond, so you will find travel tips for many countries, whether I am visiting family or friends. What I love about this is that I get to bring you all the local tips from people already living there. You get all the touristy things mixed in with local hidden gems too.
My style of travel is mixed, I love a bit of luxury and I certainly love adventure and some of that may involve camping; the less than glamorous side of travel but I urge you all to go out of your comfort zone. Being out in nature with stunning views and away from the hustle and bustle can be just as addictive as the luxurious and pampering side of travel. So, yes you will find food, adventure, and cultural travel on the blog. All in all, with the aim of help you plan your trip with ease as well as inspiring you to try something new or visit a new country you may never have thought about before.
Who Do I Travel With?
I make every effort of promoting women to travel out there solo or accompanied. The world and many of the countries out there are not as scary as the media makes them out to be. I have had solo trips in Africa, Asia and Europe. You can travel on your own and don’t have to wait for others to be ready. You will also find trips on the blog where I have travelled with my husband and my family. The key is to explore this beautiful world while we are in it! So get out there! PS – If you are worried about who will take your pictures when you are solo, that’s what tripods are made for. 😉
Safe travels, Bee xoxo
