What others say...

Over the years I've had the pleasure of working with Fiona who is truly one of the most professional travel writers I've had the pleasure in dealing with. I thoroughly enjoy reading her stories. During my time with [Asian airline], I had the pleasure of travelling with Fiona to Laos. Fiona secured several commissions from top media outlets which thoroughly impressed our partners & we continue to work with Fiona.

Air Asia & Accor

I have travelled and worked with Fiona for nearly 15 years and her professional and “can do” attitude to anything is simply refreshing. She embraces challenges (like running a marathon in Laos during a famil) and as she is a respected travel writer, her results always show a great ROI and insight into any destination
