Liz Deacle, author of ‘The Bog Diaries’. Founder of It’s A Drama Travel Blog. Podcaster, Youtuber, Entreprenuer. Professional storyteller.

But most importantly; A mum.

Liz is a British ex-pat who, in 2009, swapped grey skies for the beautiful vistas of New Zealand.

After homeschooling her two kids for eight years, she took (dragged) them and her husband on a year-long backpacking trip around the world.

Liz fell in love with storytelling and decided to start a travel blog.

Five years later (and after much sweat, slog, and determination) Liz and her husband (Brian) now run multiple online businesses. Liz and Brian spend long periods travelling, creating content for their two popular websites, and running a membership site that helps people moving to New Zealand.

Liz and Brian’s YouTube channel, “It’s a Drama,” has over a million views, and their comedy podcast, filled with down-to-earth discussions about relationships and travel, has over 100,000 downloads.

Liz recently published her first book, The Travel Bog Diaries. A refreshingly candid account of her mid-life crisis travel adventure with her family. Book 2 is set to be released in October ’23.

Liz’s expertise is in stepping out of the box, taking risks, and celebrating the imperfections of women. When not creating content or globetrotting, you can find Liz in her New Zealand garden, attempting to enjoy a quiet glass of wine while trying not to trigger one of those annoying hot flushes.
