Would you like to work with a travel blogger who’s been in the industry for over 10 years?
Of 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 of the world than my past self would have ever thought possible, but there’s always so much more.
As well as my blog I’m a contributor to gapyear.com. In the past I’ve written for Thomas Cook, NetFlights, Flight Centre, The Big Issue, Travelettes, Intrepid Travel, Round the World Experts and Busabout, among many other sites. I was the Travel Editor for the awesome Blogosphere Magazine too.

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.
