What is Aspire to Amble?
Aspire to Amble began as a humble travel blog, but it has blossomed into so much more. It is now home to a combination of my passions for travel, foreign languages and cultures, art and illustration, food, photography, and writing. As a result it is packed full of content that aims to inspire creativity and adventure.
About Kia Marie Hunt, creator of Aspire to Amble
I’m Kia: a content writer, editor, illustrator, linguist, culture enthusiast, all-round creative, and lover of travel. I recently graduated (as Student of the Year!) in B.A. Hispanic Studies (Spanish and Portuguese) from the University of Birmingham.
I currently work as a freelance content writer, proofreader, copywriter, and editor for various clients both online and in-print, including HarperCollins UK and National Geographic.

During my degree I spent the most marvellous year abroad in South America (Uruguay and Brazil)! I love to travel and experience different cultures. Another of my biggest passions is language. Connecting with people while I travel by communicating with them in their native language is one of my favourite experiences. At the moment, I am fluent in Spanish and (Brazilian) Portuguese, but in the future, I hope to learn Italian, Polish, Russian, British Sign Language, and maybe a little Japanese too!
I’m also a self-taught artist and illustrator, I enjoy creating illustrations and art-journal spreads that are inspired by my various adventures. You can see more of this work by visiting my art page, or my art Instagram account @aspiretoamble.
I am open to all opportunities that allow me to turn my passion into a career. This means that some of the links or ads that you click on through my site may be making me a little bit of commission.
However, the opinions on this website are still my own, and anything I choose to share with you is my own personal choice, I will always be honest about something whether I am making money from it or not.
