Hi, my husband, two boys (the eldest 4 years; our baby is currently 3 months old) 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. In 2012 we undertook a 6-month Grand Tour with our then toddler. We stayed in Airbnb apartments all around the world - what a revelation! Once back in Australia, we swapped roles that summer and hosted 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.
