My name is Delphine Mignon and I’m the writer and photographer behind LesterLost, a travel blog. Originally from Paris, France, I moved to Australia over 20 years ago and I live in Sydney with my Australian husband. My first career was in the travel industry and I’ve always been passionate about travel.


Why LesterLost?

LesterLost aims to inspire readers to explore more, whether it be far or near, with an open mind and a keen eye (behind a camera!). I write about places that move or wow me, in a way that adds value to prospective travellers. My photography is designed to inspire and showcase the best views, while being realistic and accessible. I aim to inspire travellers by giving them tips and ideas, and build their confidence to try new things or new destinations.


Partner with LesterLost

My audience is growing and diverse, mostly based in Australia and the USA. I travel solo or as a couple, or with my photographer father, and I’ve even tested multi generational travel! To me, travel is the ultimate freedom and the best recipe for happiness! Be it an adventure, a cultural experience or a road trip, I will pack a bag and go!

I am interested in building meaningful and personalised relationships with tourism boards, travel companies, product brands and accommodation providers in order to create honest and sustainable partnerships.


Locate LesterLost

The destinations I visited with LesterLost include Australia (Sydney, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia), New Zealand (North and South Islands), Sri Lanka, France and Morocco. My travel experience is in fact much broader, and covers 5 continents but there was no Instagram or blogs back then…

I have an active presence on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. You can also contact me on the blog: https://lesterlost.com

The Sweet Wanderlust

The Sweet Wanderlust

The Sweet Wanderlust is a blog for people with a sweet tooth and a taste for adventure. Chief wanderer and dessert-eater, Brittany Kulick, has visited 54 countries and is passionate about sharing unique activities, delicious desserts and epic itineraries as she travels. Her upbeat, bubbly personality comes through in her enthusiastic posts as she writes about old favorites and up and coming attractions.

About Brittany

In 2015, Brittany left Dallas, Texas and a career in marketing to travel full time. Since then, she’s completed every bungy jump in Queenstown, New Zealand, skydived Mission Beach, Australia, swam with humpback whales in Tonga, and consumed more than 30 freakshakes on her search for the best one in the world.

About The Sweet Wanderlust

The Sweet Wanderlust’s New Zealand itinerary has been shared over 11,000 times and her post on Dallas, Texas’ awesome activities has been shared more than 17,000 times. CultureTrip and Hostelworld included The Sweet Wanderlust on their Instagram users to follow in 2018 list, and her work has been published in TRVL and Huffington Post.

As an American based Down Under for more than two years, her audience is equally split between Australians and Americans. More than 9,000 people visit The Sweet Wanderlust each month for travel inspiration and practical tips. On social media, her combined following of 28,000 tune in daily to see over-the-top desserts and colorful adventures.

Over the past three years, Brittany has formed partnerships with hotels, tour operators, brands and tourism boards all over the world to share their story and introduce her audience to new places and products.  Whether glamping in the Yarra Valley, touring the Great Ocean Road, or promoting a new tourism destination in Ireland, Brittany goes above and beyond to share these unique experiences with her readers and social media followers.

Here’s what some of them have to say about her:

Brittany is the perfect brand ambassador for Lily Claire. She left a comfortable life in the US to travel the world and see its wonders. Her joyful voice and engaging images draw a loyal and enthusiastic audience and she has been extremely successful in communicating the story and values of our brand. We have received orders and inquiries from around the world thanks to Brittany’s representation.

Founder, Lily Claire

We first came across Brittany after her photo was posted on Instagram of our glow ice cream at White Night Melbourne. We loved the pic that we awarded her best pic of the night. From then on Brittany’s eye for detail in capturing our desserts and reaching out to her audience was amazing. Her Instagram campaign was great for us in attracting new followers.

Travel Bug Within

Travel Bug Within

I’m an Australian freelance writer and blogger at Travel Bug Within, interested in writing about travel, people, business, health and wellbeing. In amongst raising three rowdy young men and trying to maintain a level of fitness, I pursue my combined passions: travel and freelance writing. I’m also into photography learning in the field.


About Me

To date, my travels have taken me to many places. I’ve hiked the rugged coastline of eastern Tasmania, snorkelled with black tip reef sharks in Fiji and walked under the canopy of ancient rainforests in Queensland’s Mount Tamborine. I’ve scaled the cliffs of Bali’s Mt Batur in darkness to watch the sunrise, smelt the sweet incense in Hong Kong’s Man Mo Temple, dipped my naked body in Japanese onsens and stared in awe at the towering limestone cliffs of Vietnam’s Halong Bay.

I’ve lived in London and Amherst, in Massachusetts, USA. Currently I live in the suburbs of Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, with my constantly hungry sons, a crazy border collie and a few fish. When I’m not writing, you may find me hiking or at the beach. I’m not the type to sit still. I prefer adventure over relaxation and conversation over contemplation.

Work with me

In an industry saturated with writers, I think of myself as a breath of fresh air. As a mature 50 something with three teenage children – I connect with a few demographics. I love nothing more than being able to share my travel inspiration, whether it be as a solo traveller, a single mother travelling with her kids or in a group.


The topics I write about vary and my interests are broad. My values are to write honestly about a destination, experience or product whether the post was sponsored or not. It is my practice to acknowledge when an experience took place on a famil/press trip or if I travelled/stayed as a guest.


I offer a variety of writing services:

Freelance writing:

  • Writing articles for magazines or online

This service covers a broad range of subjects, particularly travel and lifestyle. Cost for this service depends on the word length, the depth of research required and inclusion of photos and graphics.


  • Writing guest posts for websites

The Accidental Australian

The Accidental Australian

The Accidental Australian is a long-established Australian and expat blog, run by American expat Katie, who found herself moving to Sydney on a whim. We provide irreverent musings of a life down under and travel advice for expats and adventurers, with a focus on Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.


Why The Accidental Australian?

We are about two things here: helping expats and unusual and quirky Australian travel experiences. With the exchange rate strongly favouring the American dollar and low international airfares, there has never been a better time for Americans to travel to Australia. Whether coming over for a working holiday, relocation visa, or just for a holiday, travellers are keen to learn about Australia and make the most of their time here.

With a blog focusing on Sydney and Australian travel, and expat issues, as Katie is originally from the US and now residing in Sydney, most readers come from Australia, UK, and the US, and are either residing in Australia, or planning a move down under.

If your market is Australian tourism and/or the expat market, I think we would be a good fit.
I am interested in a wide range of collabs, including reviews, press trips, contests or sponsored posts, and freelance writing projects.

The Accidental Australian is featured on several high traffic expat websites, driving traffic from interested expats. With a large social media following and high blog traffic, my readers are interested and avid social media users. As we continue to grow, The Accidental Australian is becoming a premium destination for unique travel ideas and expat planning. We also rank as #30 in the Top 100 Expat Blogs and Websites for Expatriates, and hope to climb higher up the list in 2018!


Freelance writing

A talented freelance writer and recent finalist in Navigator Paper’s ‘Around the World in Eighty Pages’ international travel writing contest, Katie can make your product, experience, or hotel come to life through fun and engaging writing.

I have recently worked with Expat.com and MOVE Guides on creating Australian specific content, and am available for a range of long-term or short-term freelance projects. Other recent work has been with GoOverseas.com, Citizen Femme, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and She’s Wanderful.


Companies & Brands worked with in the last 12 months:

We are proud to have worked with a range of Australian and international brands, creating content to showcase some of the best Australian tourism has to offer! These include:

• Rottnest Express
• Sydney BridgeClimb
• Webjet
• Harbourside Cruises, Sydney


Who Do We Work With?

I am interested in honest and meaningful relationships that will benefit us both, a ‘quick dollar’ is not my endgame- rather, I want to provide my readers with information, ideas, and tips that will help them love Australia as much as I do, and will hopefully encourage them to check out your amazing business or product.

I’ll only recommend something I really enjoy myself, and I am always truthful with readers.

Please feel free to contact me for more information, and I look forward to hearing from you!
