I’m a freelance TV Producer / Director of documentaries and travel content. My restless pursuit of adventure and love of documenting stories is the reason I decided to start this blog. The backpacking obsession started when I was 18 when I volunteered in a South African township school, inter-railed around Italy and worked as a journalist for Costa Rica’s Beach Times, writing travel pieces for their weekly English-language newspaper.
Why Backpacking in Heels?
My travel armoury of course includes a head torch, sleeping bag liner and zip-lock bag of English breakfast teabags but a pair of heels did come in handy when I was spontaneously invited to a Burns’ Night cèilidh in Uganda, went bar-hopping till dawn in Rio and gatecrashed a party with the British High Commissioner in Delhi.
