Hi, my husband, toddler and I live by the beach in Sydney, Australia. I'm a freelance writer, predominantly in special reports, the arts and travel. I hold a research PhD in English Literature. We have just returned from a 6-month Grand Tour with our toddler. We stayed in Airbnb apartments all around the world - what a revelation! Now we're back, we're looking forward to swapping roles and hosting lovely people from everywhere. We all love food, the adults enjoy wine and we adore big cities, art, architecture, public spaces and institutions such as galleries and museums. We also like running, walking, cycling, swimming and living by the big blue.
