Trained as a Geography teacher and now a freelance writer, I have an excuse to be just about anywhere. Travel is my passion. I‘m addicted to the thrill of exploring new places and am happiest as a solo independent wandering where I please. I’ve visited over a hundred countries and have a particular fondness for Latin America. When I’m not on the road my two golden retrievers ensure I get plenty of fresh air in the Essex countryside.
