Hi and Welcome to Live Work and Play

Live Work and Play ® was created in the 1990s by me, Sharyn McCullum. I created it as the name of my working holiday guides because a working holiday overseas is more than just working, it is about spending extended time in a different country living, working and playing.


Under the Live Work and Play banner I write and publish a range of working holiday, gap year and general travel guides. They have been written to help you hit the ground running on a working holiday to one of these countries.

Become A Travel Writer

I fell into travel writing myself. And what I discovered was that you don’t need a journalism qualification to provide great travel articles that sell. What you need are a few skills to help you get an Editor’s attention so they buy your article. To help you get these skills I have put together a travel writing course. After 5 easy lessons you will have the skills you need to be on your way to becoming a travel writer that is making money from their travels. To start your travel writing career click here.
