Postcards from Paradise – Meet the extremely photogenic travel influencer who turned her passion into a pay check.
Full-time traveller – it’s the kind of job title most of us can only dream of, but Aleisha MacAulay has managed to turn her love of adventure and photography into a full-time career. The glamorous blonde, who describes her age as ’30-something’, quit her job in business development and content licensing to travel the world with the love of her life as a ‘travel influencer’

She now works with brands and shares her pictures with her 44,000 followers on her Instagram account @eat.shop.travel.

Aleisha MacAulay, who hails from Sydney, Australia, travels with her fiance, Mark, who takes the pictures in which she models.

They have visited everywhere from Iceland, Tanzania and Belize to Peru, Bonaire and Curacao.

Aleisha said:

‘I have loved travel and photography for as long as I can remember. When I had the opportunity to quit my job and travel full-time I wanted to combine both passions to inspire others to see more of our beautiful world.’

But how does she make money from jetting round the globe like this?? Alesha says
