HI, MY NAME IS… Polly Allen
MY TWITTER HANDLE IS… @misspallen
MY BLOG URL IS… travellingcalavera.com
I’M FROM… Sussex.
ASIDE FROM BLOGGING, I ENJOY… Reading Elle magazine, vintage shopping and visiting museums. Of course, travel is a big part of what I do, but I’m always in blogger mode when I travel!
I’M CURRENTLY WATCHING… The Killing – very late to jump on this bandwagon, but absolutely loving it. The first series (original Danish version) has me gripped.
I’M CURRENTLY READING… Loads of Graham Greene books – both his novels and his non-fiction. I also loved The Miniaturist, by Jessie Burton.
I GOT STARTED BLOGGING IN… 2013 on my travel blog, and I previously wrote a fashion blog.
I BLOG ABOUT… cultural travel, which can cover everything from top galleries to weird museums. Dark tourism often creeps into my blog as well, so the title relates to that.
I MOSTLY BLOG AT… home, though I’m hoping to get a stand-up desk so I can be a bit more active when I’m writing and posting!
WHEN I’M BLOGGING I LISTEN TO… rock music on Spotify or Planet Rock. Currently enjoying Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.
MY FAVOURITE SNACK/DRINK WHILE BLOGGING IS… a cup of tea (British cliche, I know!) and a chocolate bar. No health snacks here!
IF I HAD A BLOGGING SUPERPOWER, IT WOULD BE… teleportation. Then I could pop to the other side of the world whenever I felt like it, without having to save up the money to travel, and I could blog from cafes in exotic locations on a whim.
IF I COULD INTERVIEW ANYONE ON MY BLOG, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE… the tribe on the South Pacific island of Tanna (Vanuatu) that worships Prince Philip. Definitely an unforgettable interview!
IF I COULD RECORD A VLOG WITH SOMEONE FAMOUS IT WOULD BE… not really a vlogger by any stretch of the imagination, but a vlog with Damien Hirst at his new art gallery in London (opening in October) would be pretty cool.
OTHER BLOGS I GET INSPIRATION FROM ARE… Bruised Passports; Planes, Trains and Plantagenets; Oneika the Traveller.
I LOVE BLOGGING BECAUSE… I get to share the little things I’ve discovered on my trips, and I can pass on advice to people visiting the same destinations.
