Welcome to hashtagtravelling. Travel is a luxury open to everyone from exploring towns, cities and the beautiful English countryside, to far flung destinations. Find out what I’ve been up to in my journal.

I am a freelance travel and food writer published in print and online. I have visited 19 countries and over 27 cities, so far (and I often returning to my favourite destinations). Explore my latest features and see some of my photography. A memorable 2,500-mile road trip in a vintage Healey Silverstone clocked up 11 border crossings in three weeks. I have worked in Munich and Mallorca and currently live within the beautiful South Downs National Park area of Hampshire in the UK.

My second love is food and exploring food markets, farm shops and producers across the UK and Europe. Cooking, and enjoying the results, is one of the best ways to spend a weekend.

I hope you enjoy browsing the site.
