Travel makes me tick – and I’m not the type of girl to let aviophobia get me down! Although I will board a plane (as long as valium, a trusty airline and a fabulous destination are involved) I started my own site, dedicated to no-fly travel, to show exactly how glamorous travel can be when you keep your feet on the ground.

The plane-free travel has led to a number of additional editorial opportunities, including reviewing Royal Caribbean cruises from Southampton for Telegraph Cruise, talking through my fear of flying for WI Life magazine and exploring the New Forest for Interval World.

As well as words, I supply travel photography and my images have appeared on the Condé Nast Traveller website.

I’ve also worked on travel briefs for a host of clients including Air New Zealand, Asturias Spain, British Airways, Canal & River Trust, Chester Zoo, Culture Liverpool, Disney Cruises, Hilton Hotels, Icelandair, National Trust, Radisson Blu Hotels, Rhythms of the South, Singapore Tourism, Singapore Airlines, Ten Lifestyle Concierge, Thomson Cruises, Thomson Holidays, Visit California, Visit England, Visit Ireland, Visit Sweden, Visit Wales, Winter Wonderland and Woodland Trust.
