About Me

Hello and welcome.

Things Helen Loves is a travel and lifestyle blog written by a British woman currently based in Germany. With a focus on travel in Central Europe, family life and wellness, Things Helen Loves is aimed at the independent, multi-tasking woman who demands a life less ordinary.


My name is Helen and I am a Mother, wife, friend, traveller and consumer of more coffee than would be considered sensible. I’m also a lover of history, books, beautifully scented candles and laughing until my sides hurt.

I am happily married to a soldier and  our version of travelling involves spending a few years at a time, in as many places as possible. Currently, we are very much enjoying a stint in Germany. This blog is a fun way for me to chronicle all the things I enjoy and explore along the way, however big or small. I hope you’ll enjoy reading as much as I enjoy capturing the places and moments that are meaningful to me.

If you’d like to get in touch, have any suggestions for future blog posts or might like to work with me, you can either use the contact form, or email me direct at helen.story@hotmail.co.uk.

I am so pleased to have you here and if you’d like a peek at what I’ve been up to that doesn’t make it onto the blog  you can also find me over on Instagram @thingshelenloves.
