About Emma

I’m a freelance travel writer based in Wales, UK. The travel bug bit me when my family emigrated to New Zealand when I was 14. It sank its teeth in further during a solo RTW trip post-university. I never feel more ‘me’ than when I’m wearing a backpack and heading off into the unknown.

In another life, I spent six years working for Lonely Planet in London, travelling to the likes of Manitoba, Canada and the Maldives in the name of work (but 95% of the time I was at my desk, dreaming of far-flung lands).

Travel interests include: climbing lofty towers in European cities, trying adventure activities that scare me, eating all the things, plus yoga, wellness and wildlife.
