Work With Me

I’m here to show my readers how they can travel differently to alternative destinations, new festivals, and enjoy fresh experiences.

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.

But now? 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.

My travels

VickyFlipFlopTravelsI’ve been to more than 60 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 10-year-old self 20-year-old self would have ever thought possible, but there’s always so much more.

My work

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, Round the World Experts and Busabout, among many other sites.

I’m the Travel Editor for the awesome Blogosphere Magazine, which allows me to use my expert knowledge of the travel blogging scene to promote and champion the best bloggers in the business.


I write about higher education for topuniversities.com – my work was featured in their Top Grad School Guide.

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 Video Work

Daily vlogging

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.

Weekly vlog

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.

Daily snapchatting

I’m not a regular Snapchat user, but I’m happy to pick it back up if that’s the platform you’d like to use. I average around 500 views per post.

Instagram Stories

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!

Facebook Live

I went live for Skyscanner from Barbados to show off the beach and hotel and answer any questions.

Round up posts

Costa Rica opinion

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.

Top 10 posts / best food / drink / things to do

Take a look at the examples below to see what kind of write ups I do for a trip.

Social media coverage
