About Lerato

Lerato Bambo

Lerato Bambo, 25, is a lifestyle and travel writer with a background in beauty, digital marketing and e-commerce. Born in Pretoria, the capital city of South Africa, I relocated to Istanbul after graduation where I spent a year and discovered a new sense of independence, cultural exchanges, food experiences & adventure. I then moved to Seattle, New York and Los Angeles for different consulting work within a two year period. I moved to Dublin , Ireland for a year to study and focus on my startup. This entrepreneurial bravery paid off, with the launch of Life FAB Experiences – guided tours for female solo travelers and Roam Forward, a travel-themed Jewellery Store. My Life from a Bag is a wanderlusters diary with travel tips, hotel and restaurant reviews from around the world!
