Hello. I am a travel journalist and consultant with over 20 years experience who has been writing and editing features and reviews for international magazines, newspapers and websites since the late 1990s. I am the founder of retreat website Queen of Retreats, the author of Body & Soul Escapes and Body & Soul Escapes: Britain & Ireland (Footprint Books) and I run The Retreat Consultancy. I live in South Devon with my husband and daughter where I go for coastal walks, read in hot epsom salt baths, do daily yoga, take photos, write poetry and try not to overdose on green tea between trips. Feel free to have a nose around my site and get in touch.
