This will be a short but sweet post on what’s been happening with this site. You might have noticed some changes and I want to start off by welcoming you to Marteen Lane – Tour Guide & Travel Writer (formally It’s A Travelful Life)! What’s this?! What’s happened to It’s A Travelful Life, you might be asking! Nothing much has changed really apart from the name and the design of the website.
Why the change? Well I want to start running this website like a business. As some of you may already know I’m a tour guide with The Quiet Man Museum in Cong, Co. Mayo but I’m doing research at the moment to start guided walking tours of my home town in Ballinrobe next summer. There is so much history where I live and I want to impart that history to visitors.
As well as starting my own walking tours I will be pitching articles to different publications. I will specialise in travel, culture and heritage. I want this website to be a place to advertise my tours and to act as a portfolio for my writings. I wanted the new name to reflect this change. Of course I will still be posting here so you can keep up to date with my travels and I hope that you will still follow me on my adventures.
