Ismay Atkins

Sea-facing scribe

Five years as an editor for Time Out Guides took Ismay to the highest hotel in the world in Shanghai, desert kasbahs in Morocco, impeccably designed suites in Stockholm and all manner of hostelries in between. Stints in Mexico and Havana in her twenties gave her a taste for Latin America and so in 2006 – in a moment of calculated carpe diem – she left the Thames for the sultry shores of the River Plate in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She’s now back on UK soil, based in a Cornwall loft as a remote project editor, travel journalist and writer.
