Journalist & Travel Blogger, Stories My Suitcase Could Tell
βœ… Work With Me

Hello! I'm Katie, a Scottish islander, journalist, and award-winning travel blogger based in NYC.

As a journalist for more than 15 years, my work has been published in the likes of BBC Travel, AFAR, Roads and Kingdoms, Buzzfeed, and Scottish Islands Explorer, among others.

I also run the travel blog, Stories My Suitcase Could Tell, which inspires readers to travel both near and far. Founded in 2011, it was named β€˜Best Travel Blog' in 2014 by Cosmopolitan; saw me named as one of Scotland's Top 100 Women in Tourism in 2020; and has been featured in National Geographic Traveller, Buzzfeed, AFAR, and Wanderlust Magazine.

When I'm not writing (or travelling!) I can usually be found getting stuck into a good book, going on long walks with my puppy, Winston, or heading out in search of the best food NYC has to offer.
