This multifaceted, creative genius is a self-confessed tree-hugger. If there’s a problem she can solve it. When she’s not writing about travel she’s re-decorating her living room. Loves dogs.

Multi-Platform Journalist

This quick witted wordsmith is a bit of a culture vulture. When she’s not planning her next escapade, she’s drinking a lot of tea! Socially inappropriate. Chocaholic.

This lofty USA-loving NInja has a supernatural gift for all things digital… which unfortunately doesn’t extend to his joke-telling. Hates vegetables.
