Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

About Lucy

Whether you are a fellow traveller seeking inspiration for your next trip, or an editor looking for an enthusiastic, talented and terribly modest writer.

I’m a freelance writer, Lonely Planet author and passionate traveller currently calling Cape Town home. A self-proclaimed South Africa expert, I write on all aspects of Southern African travel.

I am also a self-taught beer expert (been practicing for years!) and an authority on South African beer. If your publication needs any features on beer culture in SA, look no further.

I can also provide copy on vineyards across four continents, India’s  Asiatic lions, travel, food and booze in South Korea or a glimpse into the Hermit Kingdom, North Korea. If your publication needs copy (or photos) on China, Thailand, Angola, Nepal or either of the Koreas, please drop me a line – I might just have what you’re looking for.

Other areas of expertise include Canadian wining and dining, touring Northern Ontario, EFL, teaching abroad, voluntourism, travel for couples and any aspect of life in the Canary Islands.

On the site you’ll find a selection of previously published articles should you wish to check me out before offering me highly paid freelance work!
