Ordinary people can live extraordinary lives.
Welcome to my travel blog
My name is Hamish Broughton. I’m the independent travel writer and photographer behind the travel blog MyTravelFix.com.
Originally born in the United Kingdom, I’ve spent a good portion of my life travelling throughout the world, capturing its beauty and sharing my experiences (along with some misadventures) online with thousands of readers.
Travel & photography has become a huge part of my life. If you too share these passions, then this is the blog for you.
Here, you can explore detailed travel photography guides, city itineraries, and other helpful resources designed to help you get more of your travel fix.
Who is Hamish Broughton?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a fixation with nature and travel. Growing up in the English countryside, I’ve always loved being outdoors and I find myself driven to exploring the world around me.
My father is an environmentalist and explorer. As a family we’d go on adventures together to the far flung corners of the world. I loved learning about different cultures, tasting strange foods and experiencing new and exotic places.
Nowadays, I live and work full time in London. But, travel is still a big part of my life. Since then, I’ve taken up photography, become a published travel journalist and created this blog.
I consider myself to be a reasonably ordinary man. I don’t travel full-time. I’m not a ‘digital nomad’. I do this because I love it. And it’s through the magic of travel that I have been able to lead a truly extraordinary life.
My hope is that I can help you to do the same.
I've traveled to some truly incredible places...

It all started with photography
In 2014, I bought my first DSLR camera. Since then, photography has become a big part of my life, igniting a passion within me that I didn’t even know existed.
Photography is the perfect excuse to get up, get out and experience this beautiful planet we all call home.
Over the years, I’ve spent countless hours teaching myself to shoot. Slowly and steadily improving and honing my skills.
As I got more advanced, I wanted to push myself to take better and better photos in even more exciting and far-reaching locations.
Fast forward to 2017, travel and photography were now a huge part of my life. But, I always felt something was missing.
It wasn’t until then that I started to throw my passion for writing and story telling into the mix. And, after much trial and error, my travel blog was born.
In 2017, I launched my website and started to share my experiences with the world.
The travel blog
It’s only been a few years since I took my first step into the world of travel blogging. I can’t lie – it’s been hard work! But I’ve loved every minute of the experience.
This blog is the consolidation of three of my great passions: travel, photography and writing.
Now, I am proud to share my stories, articles and photos with thousands of people from all over the world every single month.
My photography location guides are the back-bone of the blog and their popularity is testament to the number of like-minded travellers out there seeking new and innovative ways to capture their experiences.
The blog enables and inspires me to travel as much as possible and always seek new places to explore. I hope it can do the same for you too.
Becoming a published travel writer
In 2018, less than a year after starting this blog, I became a published travel writer and partnered with luxury travel brand Go Chic.
Working with Go Chic has given me opportunities to to explore more countries and cities than ever before.
Instagram (despite its many faults) is a fantastic place to share images with my followers. I regularly share my favourite shots here and chat with people to collaborate, answer questions and get to know my followers on a more personal level.
Feel free to follow me and introduce yourself. I’d love to hear from you.
