Thanks for wanting to learn more about us and how to work with us!
We’re eternally curious freelance travel writers who left the UK in 2014 and haven’t looked back. Together, we’ve lived in four countries (China, Japan, Korea, and the UAE) and travelled to countless more.
Always interested in learning about different cultures, we read as much as possible about a country or city before we go anywhere and encourage others to do the same! Read their authors, learn about their history, and celebrate their literature. We specialise in culture-based travel, art, and literature. We also cover literary destinations and places perfect for book-lovers and are constantly seeking out these special destinations.
You’ll notice we write a lot about translated literature and that’s because we fervently believe that reading diversely is the best way to understand people and the world outside our small circles. We think it’s particularly important to read about the country you’re going to before you travel there.
Of course, we then love to delve into the food, travel, and experiences that make any trip memorable. This website was born while we were living in South Korea and it’s taken us to places since we never thought were possible. Let us inspire you, too.
We wholly believe in learning as much about a culture as possible before travelling, and this feeds into our writing. Above all, we believe in storytelling, and you’ll notice that all of our articles are brimming with intimate detail and personal experiences. We’re native English speakers and have spent significant time in the places we write about. We’re also both freelance journalists (with portfolios available) meaning we’re used to working to deadline and producing consistently high-quality work.
