About Mariee Travel

Hi! My name’s Hannah Marie and I’m the blogger and creator behind Mariee Travel. I’m passionate about travel and I love sharing guides, tips and resources to help people plan their dream vacation!

For 8 years I worked as a wedding magazine editor and it was a dream job. Everything about my work was amazing, but the thing I loved the most was writing about honeymoons each and every day!

Throughout my career, I’ve written hundreds of honeymoon features as well as luxury travel articles for the UK’s biggest wedding and lifestyle magazines. 

To say I’m obsessed with travel is an understatement! I looove researching, reviewing and talking about the world’s best places.

I know how important it is to get all the details right when you’re planning a dream getaway. But I also get that there’s a TON of information out there and it can be overwhelming and complicated to plan and book the best trip possible.

So if you

  • …are recently engaged and planning a luxury honeymoon
  • …are struggling to figure out where you should go on a once-in-a-lifetime getaway
  • … or you simply want insider travel tips, five-star itinerary ideas and bucket list inspiration

…you’re in the right place!

This blog is here to help you have a streamlined and stress-free travel planning process!

From mini-breaks to month-long adventures, I’ve always been hooked on travel. 

I’m the kind of person who thrives on planning trips. Yep, I actually love researching and planning all my trips and discovering the best things to see, do and experience in every destination!

As well as writing travel articles and features for a load of trusted brands. I’ve also planned and booked all of my own holidays.

In my 20s, I backpacked around the globe checking off my top bucket list destinations – my favourite was definitely Thailand, but I also spent 5 weeks in Australia, a month in New Zealand and volunteered and island hopped in Fiji, too. 

Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to go on luxury vacations across five continents, as well as review and write about some of the most unbelievable honeymoon hotels and paradise locations.

✔️ Staying in a five-star safari lodge in South Africa
✔️ Trekking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand
✔️ Renting a luxury private pool villa in rural Bali
✔️ Visiting Barbados for Crop Over Festival 
✔️ Sleeping in a floating bungalow in Thailand’s Khao Sok National Park
✔️ Sailing around Australia’s Whitsunday Islands

Mariee Travel was born with all this in mind!

When I lost my job to the pandemic, I didn’t want to give up writing about travel. I wanted to create a blog that’s a celebration of the very best that this beautiful world has to offer.

A site that’s dedicated to the crazy-amazing adventures: The dream bucket list destinations. The splurge-worthy trips where you have “pinch-me” moments over and over again. The once-in-a-lifetime honeymoons and the romantic five-star getaways that you can’t wait to one day treat yourself to.

I’m not a travel agent but I love writing about travel and sharing my favourite destinations, tips and recommendations so you can make your travel dreams a reality!

Whether you’re after honeymoon or luxury travel content, I hope you find this blog inspiring and that it’s helpful as you plan the kind of trip you’ve always dreamed of.
