About me

I am a travel journalist with more than 10 years’ experience in consumer publishing. As well as writing about travel, I’ve worked as a campsite courier in France and a ski rep in the Italian Alps, and when I was 18 sailed transatlantic on a square rigger. These days I write about anything from hotel reviews to extreme adventure.

Favourite places : It’s verging on cruelty to ask a travel journalist to create a shortlist, but Vietnam was an amazing country – spectacular in its scenery with an intriguing mix of cultures; the Windward Islands in the Caribbean are friendly and stunningly beautiful, especially the Grenadines; I’d love to go back to Croatia, which had the most inviting sea I’ve ever swum in, and the Hautes Alpes in France will always have a little piece of my heart.
