BLOGGER OF THE YEAR | British Guild of Travel Writers 2017

Hello, I’m Kathryn, a travel photographer and blogger. While the world has been turned on its head and our wings may have been clipped, I’m still travelling with my mind.

Join me for some armchair travel, perhaps try one of my recipes, enjoy my photography, learn about animals you’ve yet to see or places you’ve yet to visit. But above all, stay well, and for now at least, stay home.
