Sophie's love of travel began as a child on lengthy family road trips to Greece, Italy, Spain and the South of France. Since studying English Literature at University in historic Bath, she has expanded her horizons with many journeys across the globe. A bit of a foodie, one of her passions is sampling local delicacies wherever she finds herself – in fact among her top recommendations is a food tasting tour by bike of Sweden’s Southern city, Malmö. One of her favourite trips was trekking in the Andes and hiking to the magnificent Machu Picchu, but she's equally enthralled with Scandinavia, particularly when it involves a visit to Father Christmas in Lapland and dogsledding across Finland's snowy tundra.
