Sian is an award-winning travel and outdoors journalist who writes for titles including The Independent, Evening Standard, BBC Countryfile Magazine and Coast.
She is also the editor of Active Traveller magazine. Her work as an adventurous writer has taken her around the world in the name of a good story, exploring Bolivian jungles, kayaking in Greenland, conquering mountains in Africa and learning the hard way that peeing on a jellyfish sting doesn’t help in Thailand.
That said, her favourite days outdoors are usually spent camping or hiking in Britain’s wild corners, fuelled by Kendal Mint Cake.
Her blog, www.thegirloutdoors.co.uk, is about championing easy adventures that beginners can try. Sian’s first book, The Girl Outdoors, is out in April 2018, published by Bloomsbury.
