Hi. I'm Claire, a former flight attendant for a 5-Star Airline based in Seoul, South Korea. I spent about a decade living my dream job and discovering the world’s wonderful destinations. Before joining the airline industry, I also had a short stint as a hotelier in my home country.

Currently, I live in the Middle East with my hubby and travel buddy, Rock Licker who’s a geoscientist exploring the amazingly rich and interesting petroleum systems in the Arabian Peninsula. Prior to this, Rock Licker was based in Australia for 9 years and worked with projects by the supermajors of the oil and gas industry. 

As a couple, for the last 8 years, we’ve been to 53 cities, 23 countries and 5 continents.

The Happy Travellers began as a spontaneous idea after saying goodbye to my flying career and becoming a full-pledge expat wife. With my love of photography and telling stories of our travel adventures as a couple, the travel website came to fruition last November 2015 and was officially launched in May 2016.

Our main goal is to address our desire to inspire and encourage everyone to travel the world and make lasting memories. We strive to give our readers some help in choosing the best hotels, spas, restaurants and itineraries that would give them a one-of-a-kind experience.

The journey so far has been incredible and we are so blessed beyond our imagination. Enjoy our stories and we wish you happiest travels, always!
