ON A PERSONAL NOTE...
Hi, I’m Britt – logophile, bibliophile, world-traveler, interiors enthusiast, and plant-based foodie. Before finally settling down in St. Petersburg, Florida, I lived out of a suitcase while traveling the world for three years straight. My passport tells the tale of European summers, months backpacking through Asia, and solo, road trips around New Zealand.
These days, I run Let’s Be Birds from my home office in St. Pete. As a content writer, copywriter and social media specialist, I help brands tell stories and connect with their audience through valuable and engaging content.
After graduating from the University of Tampa with degrees in Communications, Writing and Art, I began my digital marketing career. I spent the next seven years working at ad agencies as a Media Planner, Account Manager and Content Manager for brands like Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and General Mills on Walmart.com. In 2017, I made the leap into full-time Freelancing. Now I work with sustainable brands primarily within the Home, Interiors, Health and Travel domains.

ARE MY GUIDES RIGHT FOR YOU?
WHERE TO STAY
Hotels I recommend are usually aesthetically pleasing and simple but also an authentic representation of the local design. I only recommend hotels and Airbnbs I have either stayed at, visited or heavily researched. Wherever I stay is my home so the vibe and level of comfort are important. I typically stay in mid-range priced hotels and houses, in excellent locations, with a great walking score, fabulous amenities and preferably with a pool or view.
THINGS TO DO
I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, surfing, coastal walks, anything and everything on the water. I’m far more impressed by natural wonders than I am by city structures. If a place offers a movie night under the stars, I will find it. I think the “touristy” attractions of cities are important and I condone participating. think a lot of highly-recommended attractions are overrated and I’m not afraid to say so.
Most of my guides will be for travelers that make a decent income and want to travel comfortably without breaking the bank. My guides prioritize budgets for experiences and hotels. I’m deeply satisfied when I find a good deal, say “FTB” (fuck the budget) when it comes to once in a lifetime opportunities, but personally, some of my happiest moments over the past few years were sleeping on the ground in a tent. Bottom line, when it comes to budgeting, I’m practical.
WHERE TO EAT
I recommend restaurants with good vibes and plant-based options at affordable prices. A friendly staff makes a big difference to me and greatly affects my experience. I love finding restaurants that are comfortable with an ambiance.
WHERE TO DRINK
I like a big night out just as much as any 20 something, but I’m not typically one to go out clubbing. I love live music, a band or a DJ, tequila cocktails and craft beer but wine is my typical go-to these days, especially in Europe. I’m a sucker for rooftop bars, bar games and places with unique qualities or themes.
WORK & PLEASURE
I’ve been traveling for 3 years now. Most of that time I’ve been working and some of the time I’ve been on vacation. I can be your Digital Nomad guide or your OOO guide.
SOLO & COUPLE TRAVEL
I started off traveling solo and occasionally meeting up with girlfriends around the world for vacations. Now I travel primarily with my partner. I love recommending romantic getaways, girls trips and solo backpacking adventures. I love all forms of travel and while I think it’s incredible to share experiences with loved ones, I’m a big proponent of solo travel as well.
