Food and Travel
Working for UK publication Food and Travel meant scouring the globe for unique accommodation, adventurous activities and idyllic retreats to cover in the magazine’s regular round-up features.
From the world’s greatest two-wheeled adventures in Pedal Power:
“To see cities and sights from a unique perspective, pack up your panniers and travel by bike. Don’t just explore one town; experience many as you pedal between places, taking in idyllic countryside and enabling you to stop whenever you want to sample the local food and drink.”
…and regal accommodation in King of the Castle:
“Ancient battlements, fairytale turrets and ornate four-poster beds; a weekend break at a castle hotel affords a unique journey back in time. Combining elegant period features and dramatic rural locations, these medieval dungeons, sumptuous Tudor bedchambers and ornate Victorian walled gardens will delight any aspiring royal.”
…to Road Thrill, which charted the world’s greatest road trips. From Iceland’s scenic but sometimes treacherous Ice Ring Road to California’s iconic Route 1, the feature offered route advice and places to eat and sleep along the way. It took a lot of research, and a few white-knuckle hours as I zigzagged my way along the mountain passes between Zurich and Geneva.
I also researched and wrote several custom publishing pieces, like Beach Life for Italia, Italy’s official tourism organisation, which saw me sharing secret (and not-so secret) seaside gems:
“Surrounded by sparkling blue-green water on three sides, Italy boasts over 8,000 kilometres of varied and enticing coastline, not to mention stunning offshore islands. From rugged cliffs to charming bays, quaint fishing villages to seaside resorts, Italy’s spiagge are a must-stop destination.”
