Would you like to work with a travel blogger who’s been in the industry for over 10 years? Course you would!
I studied Communications and Journalism in Sheffield (BA Hons) before going on to Harlow College to gain my formal National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) schooling.
In the past I’ve worked as the Content and Social Media Manager for gapyear.com and as Content Editor for HostelBookers.com, as well as in various roles for some of the UK’s most popular magazines.
I travel to the destinations I think my readers would like to know about, and write about them. I work for travel websites, magazines and festival companies writing and advising, using my knowledge to help them serve their customers better. And of course, I run this blog.
I’m on YouTube too!

I’ve been to more than 70 countries, you can see them all on my travel bragging page. I’ve worked two summers at camp in the USA, I’ve skied in Japan and Canada, travelled Europe for four months (twice), been to festivals around the world, gone on safari in Tanzania, backpacked across Australia, in Central America and through Asia.
I’ve sailed from El Nido to Coron in the Philippines, cycled the length of Vietnam, ATVd round Galilee in Israel, jumped out a plane in New Zealand and driven a Chevy from San Francisco to LA on the Pacific Coast Highway.
I’ve seen more than my past self would have ever thought possible, but there’s always so much more.
As well as my blog I’m a weekly contributor to gapyear.com. In the past I’ve written for Thomas Cook, NetFlights, Flight Centre, The Big Issue, Top Universities, Travelettes, Intrepid Travel, Round the World Experts and Busabout, among many other sites. I was the Travel Editor for the awesome Blogosphere Magazine too.
I’ve also worked as an advisor to the BBC on their festival coverage and to one of the biggest UK marketing agencies regarding developing their new festival drink. Busy, busy.

My podcast – So She Travels
In February 2019 I started the So She Travels podcast. The whole point is to chat with female travellers of today and find out how they’ve managed to make travel such a big part of their lives.
Have a listen and you can expect advice on travelling with children, on a budget, in a relationship and a whole host of other issues that might stop some women from achieving their travel dreams.

My Video Work
I would either need a good amount of time in the evening to edit these, or I could post them when I get back, a week to the day later so they still follow on.
This was put together within two weeks of coming home.
Video based on a theme
I’m all about saving money so I really enjoyed making this video with Visit NOLA on the cheap things to do in the city.
Round up video of the trip
Once the trip is over, and within a time frame decided between us, I would do a round up video. I could either talk to camera and include clips from the experience retrospectively, like the fitness video above, or I could put together clips in sequence, like my STA Travel Contiki Experience video.
I went on a two-week cycle trip with Intrepid Travel, 700km from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. This video isn’t public on my YouTube, but I just wanted to show you a very successful Insta Stories campaign. Had so many comments on it!
I went live for Skyscanner from Barbados to show off the beach and hotel and answer any questions.
And again for Trek America.
Round up posts
I like to write up my thoughts and feelings on a place when I get back, as a travelogue rather than as a list article.
