Thank 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’.
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 International, ActionAid, Amnesty 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.
