After a brief incarnation as a furniture and jewellery designer, Simone decided to swap workshops and toolboxes for boutique hotels and matching luggage, and entered the world of travel journalism. After several years of struggle, someone finally decided to pay her for it and she’s since explored the globe on behalf of Psychologies, Condé Nast Traveller and The Sunday Telegraph. When not scribing for her supper, she can usually be found snoozing in a hammock in the Mexican rainforest or making fire with her bare hands somewhere in Sussex.
