Kate's travel writing gongs include the Best Australian Story under 1000 words (Australian Society of Travel Writers), and gold prizes in 2014 and 2015 ( North American Travel Journalists Association).
For Lonely Planet, she’s traipsed around Bolivia’s highlands, driven solo across South Africa, consumed more Greek wine than Dionysus, and is forever humbled by the generosity of locals wherever she is. She can put away more chocolate and cakes than Nigella, and dances and chats her way around the world.
But basically, she’s just curious. And loves sharing her findings with others.
