A little bit about me
Having originally studied Zoology and Psychology at Bristol University I went back to college as a mature student to study graphic design. This led me to working in the travel industry and my work now also includes writing, photography and social media for Serenity Holidays Ltd (which includes The Gambia Experience and Corsican Places). In addition to this I also work freelance and write ‘Travel With Kat’.
I’ve loved photography ever since I was given my first camera at the age of ten. I’ve been lucky enough to have visited many interesting places on photographic assignments including France, Italy, Corsica, Cape Verde, Senegal and The Gambia. My photographs have been published in numerous magazines and national newspapers and have been exhibited at The Royal Photographic Society, Bath.
Travel with Kat
I have been writing for various websites and a couple of magazines for a number of years now and have brought these articles together to start my own blog. ‘Travel with Kat’ began in September 2011. Some of my posts I have backdated to when they were originally written.
Through this blog I’d like to share with you my joy of discovering new lands, cultures and friends whether exploring Britain or on my travels many miles away.
It is always lovely to hear from my readers so please do leave a comment or just say hello. When I started blogging I didn’t realise how addictive it would be. One of the most rewarding things is when someone lets you know that they followed your advice and found it useful…
“You were so right about the 4 euro pasta joint and Il Gelato near Spanish Steps in Rome. Loved them both, thanks for the tip!” Lori Brown on Twitter.
I now also write for a number of other websites such as The Gambia Blog, A Luxury Travel Blog and 101 Holidays including a regular column looking at the best travel blog posts published in the preceding month so if you come across an article, from an independent blogger that you really love, please do let me know.
Sustainable tourism and human rights
I am passionate about human rights and an active supporter of PLAN International, ActionAid, Amnesty International and the Fairtrade Foundation. In 2009 I was won the AITO Responsible Tourism Award, for my work with Nyodema, the only individual to have received this award.
