Hello! We’re Phoebe and Matt.

Phoebe is a presenter, CNN & CNBC writer and award-winning blogger. Matt is a videographer, creative and photographer. Together, we run Little Grey Box; an award-winning travel blog and YouTube channel.

We started Little Grey Box on the floor of our London flat as an outlet for Phoebe’s love of writing. After a few years, we decided to quit our full-time jobs and take a chance on making our dreams a reality. Now, we travel the world together, working with the biggest names in the travel industry and creating written and videos guides to help others #TravelWell.

Watch our YouTube channel trailer below to find out what #TravelWell means and get to know us and our story a little bit better.

We intend to see (and share) a whole lot more of the world in 2021. If there’s an opportunity for us to work together, please email:

  1. Hi Phoebe and Matt.
    Sorry for contacting you like this – I searched for email address, etc, but all I could find is this. Anyway, I brought the family up to my in-laws on Bribie Island over Easter (we’re from Brisbane like you). Weathers been not-too-good, so turns out we watched far more TV than we ever do when on the island. So my in-laws showed me some of your travel guides, and they’ve fallen for you in a good way. George wanted to show me one of your vids in paticular, where you talk about how Little Grey Box got started, and why – your growing pains, etc. He said it reminds him a lot of my own start-up business journey which is only about 12 months old. He was spot-on – that vid did resonate with me a lot. So much so I’ll be writing up a piece around your business and sending it out to my subscribers this week or next. If you like I’ll send it over to you to take a read prior to sending, and feel free to suggest changes or additions if you like. That’s not why I’m trying to contact you, but I wanted to give you some background. Long and short is QLD Government have a program for small businesses to apply for up to $10k (it’s not the digital adaption grant from last year), and I believe what you do, and how you do it, is really an attractive offering for them. It’s only $10k, but I believe it’d also help expand your reach. And this program is really simple to apply for – only problem is, applications close on Friday, April 9. I reckon it’d probably take maybe a couple of hours to do the application, and I think you already have established business assets that could be repurposed for the program. What’s in it for me, I can almost hear you asking…Truly, nothing. I strongly believe in small businesses building partnerships with each other which are win/win. Who knows, over time that might happen with us. Might not. But you gotta start somewhere, right? If I can help you get approved for this funding, then great for you, and I’ll be the first to cngratulate you. Of course, this might have no interest from you, or perceived value. If not, I understand. It’d still be good to catch up one day for a coffee so you can hear a bit about what I do, why I do it, and how. And also be great to pick the brains of two successful Brissie business people! Have a great afternoon, Phoebe and Matt, and keep up the great work – you guys are doing really fantastic work.

    1. Thanks so much for the support, for commenting, and for letting us know about that Thomas, very kind of you. We are more than happy to answer any questions you have via this website or any of our social channels – you will find links to them on every page of this website. Happy travels and good health! 🙂

  2. Dear Phoebe and Matt,

    Warmest congratulation to achieving 50k Subscribers, I think the number will rocket upwards faster and faster.
    I am amazed about your passion about producing uniquely genuine highest quality staff, I loved your intro about Brisbane highlights, I really liked your guide how to shoot better photos and my jaw was dropped seeing you guys doing sky diving, bungy jumping, being catapulted in New Zealand.
    Interestingly I have a strange feeling as we were friends since around ten years – it comes from your super friendly personality.
    I loved that you guys showed your home, your chicken and the environment where you live. So, I know your home, no wonder I feel we are friends 🙂
    I with my wife Aniko we would be so happy to meet with you in person, we settle over on 3 February from New Zealand to Australia and arrive in Brisbane and our dream to live there or maybe at the Gold Coast. The idea to meet you guys came from the feeling I cannot explain as we known each other and we have very similar personalities, we enjoy travelling around the Globe, laugh and smile 🙂 I am a hobby photographer, Aniko is a belly dancer and glider airplane pilot.
    We wish you guys all the best – we definitely are your supportive fans and maybe we can meet in person one day 🙂
    Happy-happy New Year 2021 to you,
    Warmest hugs:
    Charlie – from planet Earth

    1. Thank so much for the support Charlie. We really appreciate you taking the time to share this. We hope you enjoy Australia, its a fantastic place to live!

  3. Great blog. I only just discovered it. I was looking at things to do in Toowoomba.
    What I like about your blog site:
    How you present, the way your both involved and of course the filming. You glide on through the journey with you both.
    A bigger stand out is that you guys eat the food! You sit down and eat the whole meal, what a delight to see.
    While travel is restrictive at the moment, your site will come into its own. I want to explore Queensland (the Sunshine Coast soon) and hopefully country New South Wales this year. I will be exploring more on Little Grey Box for my travel destinations.
    Keep up the excellent work!
