About The Travelling Light


“Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up... This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed.”  
– Terence McKenna

The Travelling Light is an online world for seekers, travellers, digital nomads, freelancers, entrepreneurs and creators.

It’s an evergrowing collection of stories documenting a lighter, fast-changing world, a world full of new ideas for living, working and wandering.


Hi, I’m Katie 👋. I started The Travelling Light in 2013 as a travel blog full of unique places to discover in our world, places I photographed and documented personally as I traversed the globe working online from my laptop as a brand and marketing consultant.

What started as a travel blog, has gradually grown to include my personal journal of life on the road, insights on how to live a life of your own creation, interviews with people who’d done just that, different ways to get in touch with your soul and recommendations for good things made with love.

About The Light Studio

In 2019 after 7 years of freelance brand marketing consulting and 10+ years in the marketing world, I co-founded a new kind of brand/marketing agency, The Light Studio.

We help both aspiring and established entrepreneurs, creatives, freelancers, digital nomads and bloggers connect to and beam their unique light, offering brand marketing consulting and strategy (and soon, courses!) specifically tailored to independent, modern creators.

About Katie

My name is Katie McKnoulty, I’m an Australian nomadic writer, photographer and brand marketing consultant, based between my adopted homes of Marche, Italy, Paris, France and the world.

Travel is the lens through which I learn about the world and find the light, beauty, joy, hope and connection in it. Helping others connect with their light and beam it out through business and creative expression is the path through which I learn to beam my own light brighter.
