Welcome To WaytoStay!

Lewis Skiing In The French AlpsI’m Lewis Ogden, a UK-based blogger, entrepreneur, father, husband, and the visionary behind WaytoStay. The inspiration for this travel blog stems from my passion for exploring the world, a love affair that ignited during a trip to Italy in 2009 with my wife. Since then, I have made it my mission to enjoy a diverse travel schedule each year and share my stories, knowledge, and experiences through WaytoStay’s free EPIC travel guides.

So, buckle up and join me on a journey through WaytoStay, where we open the door to a world of travel insights, local expertise, and unforgettable stories.

What Is My Travel Style?

My travel style is a symphony of experiences, using my home in the UK as a launching pad from where I orchestrate multiple trips throughout the year, favoring diverse destinations and shorter getaways. From city breaks to extended beach retreats, my family and I embrace a flexible travel routine that balances exploration with relaxation.

The inspiration for our travels often arises from documentaries featuring British Greats such as David Attenborough, Simon Reeves, and Stephen Fry, and as a family, we have a shared Apple note, filled with potential destinations, making every trip a collaborative and memorable experience.
