Hi, I’m Lisa, a 30 something from the UK.  I quit my job along with my fiancé in 2015 to escape and to travel the world.  I didn’t just want to be a standard backpacker doing everything on a budget, I wanted to enjoy some of the finer things in life too, hence the name.  Plus I love cocktails, cheap and nasty whisky buckets in Thailand not really my thing!  I did have cocktail buckets though!

Cocktail in hand is dedicated to what I love and my lifestyle.  You’ll find our adventures and hopefully some inspiration to quit your job and take the leap too.  I’ll give you the low down on how I managed to how I managed to survive from the brink of bankruptcy to global traveller.  I’ll be interviewing other travellers to assist with inspiring your aspirations to make the lifestyle change.



Some of my blog posts will contain affiliate links, these won’t cost you any money, but I will receive a small percentage if you purchase through them.  Any money generated through these will be re-invested into my travel.
