Welcome

experienced travel blogger, travel writer, travel photographerThank you for visiting my blog. I hope you will stay a while, enjoy my photographs and read about some of my adventures.

A little bit about me

Having originally graduated with a Joint Honours Degree in Zoology and Psychology from 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. In addition to this I also work freelance and blog here at ‘Travel With Kat’.

My photography

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 had been writing for various websites and a couple of magazines for a number of years and brought some these articles together to start my own blog. ‘Travel with Kat’ (TWK) 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. When I started writing TWK it had a focus on travel with a leaning towards world music but over the next few months I found I was writing less about the music and more about the food I discovered on my travels. Food has remained a common theme.

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…

Sustainable tourism and human rights

I am passionate about human rights and sustainable tourism and I am an active supporter of PLAN InternationalActionAidAmnesty International and the Fairtrade Foundation. I felt very honoured to win the AITO Responsible Tourism Award 2008, for my support of health and education projects in The Gambia. This award is normally given to companies and I am the only individual to have received this award to date.

  3. Hello, If you look at the menu under destinations you’ll see I already have! I’ve visited Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. All wonderful in different ways. Sadly, it was before I started blogging or even writing or there would be a lot more on blog about it. India is the most exciting place I have ever been and I dearly hope to go back one. I’d love to discover it my train one day :-)

  8. Hello, Ms. Burrington

    As you can see from the above, I work for a Middle Eastern tour operator, and Egypt is our main destination. You can imagine how terrible things have been for us lately.

    My colleague Noha and i read your article on the safety of traveling to Egypt and were very impressed. We understand that your work is copyrighted, but is there a way we could apply for permission to include the article on our website?

    Thanking you in advance for your kind attention and advice.

    Best Regards,

    Helen Clancy

    P.S. i LOVE your blog and will be back!

    • Hi Helen,

      Thank you for getting in touch – lovely to hear you like my blog.

      I’d prefer it if you didn’t re-post the article as I believe search ages don’t like duplicate copy. However, please do take an extract (up to a third) and post that with a link to the original post for anyone wanting to read more including the comments. Also feel free to use one of my photos, if you wish, with a credit to my site.
      If you have any queries please email me at travelwithkat@rocketmail.com.
      This post has not only been well recieved by my regular visitors but it has also been read a lot via search engines and twitter, so I hope it has encouraged some people to return to Egypt and the Middle East. I would love to go back right now if I could!
      many thanks,
      Kathryn

    Thanks
