All About Us



The Lighter Journal is a travel journal with a twist. Follow us as we transform everyday souvenirs into creative writing, travel blogging and an endless opportunity for adventure.

Our team consists of sixteen recent graduates from the University of Winchester. Our passion lies in writing, and that’s where this project started, wanting to find a platform that would host and inspire our words.

This is us seeing travel writing in a new light. This is us seeing opportunity in every new lighter.

Watch us stumble through our budget travels: come with us to specialty tea-rooms, gain questionable access with us to famous landmarks and experience a hundred new adventures in between.

A lot of the time we’ll have no idea what we’re doing, but why not get lost with us – you might find something interesting.
