Contigliano, Italy

Although specialising in Africa, Sue has travelled extensively and can turn her journalistic skills and insight to destinations worldwide. Here are some of her favourite regions:

Mum and girl at Bodhanath StupaWales: Now a rather rusty Welsh speaker, Sue grew up near the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park where she was first introduced to hill walking. Her favourite beach is the five-mile stretch of sand and dunes that starts across the road from her family home in Aberdyfi, and her favourite mountain is Cader Idris, a relentless yet beautiful 500 metre peak just a stone’s throw away. She has written articles and reviews on various Welsh and UK destinations.

Italy: Sue and her partner Will have a home in the Sabine Hills, 50 miles north of Rome, a rustic, unspoilt area that, compared to nearby Tuscany and Umbria, is still very much undiscovered. Alongside their renovated farmhouse, they have an olive grove and produce their own organic extra virgin olive oil every November. She has written features on walking in Sabina and on its olive heritage and history.

Nepal:  During six months travelling in Nepal, Sue indulged a long held fascination with Everest, hiking to Base Camp, and climbing Kala Pattar and Gokyo Ri to see unbeatable panoramas of the world’s highest mountain, as well as trekking the Annapurna Circuit, Langtang and Helambu trails. She’s ridden elephants to find tigers in Chitwan, walked through the jungle bird-spotting in Koshi Tappu, and ambled for hours on end around Kathmandu, a crumbling yet charismatic city with a gentle soul. She's written articles on her experiences there.
