  • Amelia has visited 27 countries around the world and lived in three.
  • She has an online travel blog, which details countless solo backpacking stories and experiences.
  • A bit of a thrill seeker, Amelia is an advanced scuba diver and has explored many of the tropical waters around Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines.


Amelia has always loved writing. From Second World War essays at school to city guides on Barcelona's best-kept secrets, she's happiest when working with words. Her fascination with different cultures, landscapes, and food has intensified with every country she's explored. This, coupled with Amelia's great experience in digital content and travel writing, is what enables her to speak with such authority on many of the world's most exotic destinations, particularly Southeast Asia and India.


Amelia has a master's in journalism from City, University of London, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in history and politics from the University of East Anglia. She also studied abroad at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Hong Kong, which is what first sparked such intense wanderlust all those years ago.
