MeMy name is Rachel, I’m 33, Irish, and I love travelling. I love everything about travel; seeing a new place, trying the food, learning about the culture, meeting new people. I left Ireland in 2010 and went to South Korea for a year and a half. I lived in Australia for 2 years and I’m now living in Toronto since 2014. I’ve also travelled to some other amazing places in between. My blog is predominately about travelling, moving and emigrating. However, I also have a lifestyle section where I do book reviews, product reviews, cocktail recipes and more!

People always wonder about my blog name – Moneybagskeogh, so let me tell you! It not me bragging that I have bags of money, far from it, the nickname Moneybagskeogh was born when I was in college because I NEVER ever had money, but, on the rare occasions that i did have money, I would blow it all in one night. So Moneybagskeogh became my alter ego and she is the one who spends all my money. I kept it as my blog name and Instagram name as I just think it’s so funny!!

  1. Hi Rachel! I’m so happy I found your blog! I just arrived in Toronto and loving it so far! I also have a blog called anythingbutmarzipan.com would love to know more about you and if there are any blogger meet ups in TO that you know of? Would be so great to meet up with like minded people for inspiration 🙂 -LJ

    1. Hey LJ! Thanks for the follow! I just took a quick peek at your blog- looks great! As you can see mine is a very small time blog, although I’m trying to expand. I haven’t heard about blogging meet ups in Toronto but I’m sure that they exist and now that you’ve mentioned it I will look into it! I’ll let you know of I find anything 🙂
