Hi, I’m Sophie, a freelance travel writer and copywriter. From an early age, I negotiated my way onto educational trips abroad, even if I wasn’t taking the courses. I went on family holidays with families who weren’t necessarily mine.
When I grew up, I travelled the world. Gazed at mountains mirrored in lakes through the windows of the TranzAlpine in New Zealand. Watched kangaroos jump past the Ghan train, which travels to the red heart of Australia. Stood in a flurry of mosquitoes on a train from Bangkok and ate beef-flavoured noodles on a sleeper to Hanoi.
I love the way train travel gives you a sense of distance and a feel for the changing landscape.
I’ve written articles for a number of publications but for the most part I’m a copywriter. And an entrepreneur. Go and check out my contact page. At other times I’ve worked behind bars (serving drinks not inmates), in a furniture shop, a couple of bookshops and a pie shop. If for no other reason than to collect the t-shirts.
