Who is Coconut Odyssey?
I'm Michelle, aka Coconut Odyssey, a born and bred Londoner that has been lucky enough to travel to over 30 countries around the world. The ocean & wildlife are two of my biggest passions so my trips will always revolve around adventure, whether it's scuba diving in a far-flung tropical destination or searching for the big 5 on safari.
Some of my top destinations include Indonesia, The Philippines, French Polynesia, The Maldives, South Africa and India.
I started my wildlife travel blog to share my experiences and our photography to inspire others to seek out adventure and to not be afraid of the unknown. Immersing myself in local cultures, wildlife conservation and sustainability are what drives me and I hope by sharing our experiences and wildlife photography especially our UW photos can inspire others to want to explore and protect our planet as much as we do.
Before starting my journey as a travel blogger/influencer/content creator or whatever we are calling ourselves these days, I had a successful career as a Handbag Designer for many years, however, as travelling has always been my number one passion, I decided to take a leap and start writing. It’s the best decision I have ever made!
