Hi there! I'm a 31 year old travel and photography blogger, owner of www.theglobetrottergp.com. As the blog name suggests, I work as a general practitioner part-time when I am not writing content for my website or freelancing.
I loved my job as a GP but it's about the least creative job you can get and I craved to let my creative side free! So once I qualified as a GP, I started locum work allowing me the flexibility to pursue other creative channels alongside being a doctor. This is how I ended up as a travel writer - combining my love for travel, photography and writing is my dream job! I now feel like I've achieved the perfect career balance for me!
My target audience are other professionals working 9-5 but dreaming of far off lands! I show them how they can achieve this with a blog focussed on mid-budget travel or affordable luxury. I can't resist the urge to educate people on health issues so I also write articles about travel health.
Alongside articles about mid-budget travel and travel health, I also do a lot of photography how-to guides and often write about my amusing travel fails - there are many, particularly as I am the most clumsy person you will ever meet!
I'd like to make genuine connections with other travel writers and people working in the industry
So hard to choose but The Galapagos, New Zealand and Iceland are probably the top 3!
2019 is going to be all about Morocco, Japan, Ireland,Italy, South Africa and more of Iceland (which Im obsessed with)
I worked in a tiny little hospital in rural Ghana for 3 months - what an eye opener!
Adventure, gratitude, reflection
