Meet Phoebe Lee

I am excited to introduce my first Friday Feature on Captured To Share. In the process of finding my feet and learning the ins and outs of the blogging world, i have come across some of the most inspirational and encouraging blogs, showing me that it really is possible to make a life of your passions.  My first feature is one my favourites, she is authentic, an exceptional writer and has an eye for beauty in the little things.  You may have seen her name mentioned in my recent post 5 blogs you may not know but should.

Meet Phoebe Lee, An Australian based freelance writer and travel blogger from Little Grey Box.  At a young age, Phoebe took of for a trip around Europe that would change her life forever. It was on that trip that Phoebe discovered her love of travel and the freedom and wander that comes with it.   Since then, Phoebe and her husband, Matt have worked together to run and establish Little Grey Box. With Phoebe’s passion for writing and Matt’s background in video and photography, the duo have become a force to be reckoned with.

Phoebe’s blog has an incredible 30,000+ unique visitors per month and is home to countless travel tips, stories, videos and photographs.

Last week, I was honoured to chat with Phoebe and ask her some questions that i believed who help inspire my readers, as well as myself.   Phoebe was prompt to answer and left me feeling encouraged with the gradual growth of my own blog and inspired by the success of hers.

” Don’t be overwhelmed or disheartened by how many other blogs are out there. There will be days you’ll be filled with doubt about your own abilities and it’s normal to feel that way sometimes, but don’t let it stop you from following your heart and going after what you really want.” – Phoebe Lee

Q&A with Phoebe Lee.. 

-When and how did you start travel blogging? 
 
I started Little Grey Box at the beginning of 2012. I was living in London and for years had been ignoring my love of writing, blocking it out because I didn’t think I was any good at it or could be successful at all. So I started Little Grey Box as an outlet and it just naturally evolved into a travel blog, because I love travel so much. Slowly, it started to grow and now it’s my full time job and I kind of have to pinch myself every day to make sure I’m not dreaming. 

– What is your favourite type of travel and why? Solo travel/tours/friends/couple backpacking/luxury
 
I think solo travel is my favourite, just, because you learn so much about yourself when you travel by yourself. I really believe every woman should try to take a solo trip once a year. It shows you how strong you are, how much you’ve learned, gives you incredible perspective and show you how happy and content you can be just by being yourself. 

– What is in your camera bag? (camera’s you typically use) 
 
I shoot with a Canon 7D and my favourite lens is a gorgeous Sigma Art Series F1.8 18-35mm. It’s incredibly smooth and perfect for gorgeous close-up shots of plants and flowers, which I love to capture. It’s really versatile and you can still shoot landscapes on it if you need to. Photography is an expensive addiction!

– What has been your favourite trip so far? 
 
It’s so hard to choose just one, there are so many cool places that are unforgettable for different reason. I have to say, though, that Morocco really took my breath away. It had never been on my travel to-do list, so it completely blew me away. The food is amazing, Marrakesh is SO cool, the Atlas Mountains are stunning and unexpected, as is the Sahara Desert. I just can’t wait to get back there and see it again! 

 – What would be one piece of advice you would give someone just starting their own blog? 
 
Don’t be overwhelmed or disheartened by how many other blogs are out there. There will be days you’ll be filled with doubt about your own abilities and it’s normal to feel that way sometimes, but don’t let it stop you from following your heart and going after what you really want. Trust your passions and abilities and find a way to let other people’s success inspire you, not make you feel incapable of achieving what you want. Just share from your heart, be honest and be yourself.
