About me

Hi, I’m Tash Larkin and welcome to Larkin Around!

I’m a twenty-seven year old freelance writer with a perpetual case of itchy-feet and right now I’m based in the beautiful Cornwall, UK with my husband, Danny. The things that bring me the most joy in life are travelling, taking photos, discovering new vegan foods and recipes, cuddling dogs, walking barefoot on the beach and doing it all with Danny by my side.

Larkin Around started as a way of keeping our families up to date on our European road trip back in 2015. Since then it hasn’t had as much love as it should have, but I hope that this year I can turn that all around!

We have no fixed location, we actually live in our converted camper van, Stella. Our home on wheels means that we get to move around a lot and we occasionally find other places to stay on the way (right now we’re in a static caravan in Cornwall). But it just means we always have our life with us wherever we choose to go.

Through Larkin Around, I’ll share lots of things travel, wellness, foodie and career-based, and whatever else comes to my mind along the way.

I don’t profess to be some sort of expert or ‘life guru’ and I can’t promise answers or huge epiphanies, but I can promise honesty, adventure and advice for designing (and living) your best life. 

And no, I don’t mean the over-the-top Instagram version of the ‘best life’ that we’re all supposed to strive for… NOPE!

I mean your version of your best life, whether that’s sitting at home watching Netflix and eating pasta every night or backpacking through Peru for three months. Whether that’s being a really good organised adult who makes lists every day or just taking each day in your stride.

It’s all about living the life that makes you happiest. Whatever that looks like!

And if I’m being honest, this feeling of liberation and finding happiness in the everyday is still pretty new to me too! I’ve always tried to live on the chirpier side of life, play it cool and take things as they come, but that’s not always possible.

So now I’m going to try and walk the walk! And you can join me on my journey of discovery as I try to learn how to stress less and live more.

So yeah, that’s me and this is Larkin Around. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll stick around for a while.
