“Pip has visited the Cambrian Mountains of Wales so many times that locally she’s become known as ‘the Cambrian Mountains woman’.
Her first visit included a week-long itinerary, staying in amazing places, eating and drinking fantastic local produce and experiencing indoor and outdoor activities in the stunning Cambrian Mountains landscape. The impact of working with Pip has been phenomenal”.

Since I began my career as a travel writer, I’ve been continuously developing my storytelling skills and my SEO skills.

Writing captivating articles that also work for Google is a passion of mine and a skillset that I’m always looking to build on.
