Georgie is a British/Greek journalist who grew up in Bahrain, went on assignments in the wilds of South Africa and mountains of Kazakhstan, and is now living in Dubai.

When it comes to travel, she prefers to subvert the norm; if the whole world has been to a destination, she goes in the opposite direction to create a narrative true to her own experience – rather than ride off of a framework established by the masses. Her ideal travel scenario involves little thought, actually. As long as there are mountains and winding walk ways to explore with local, uninhibited encounters, she’s set! Getting to the grips of a country’s underbelly—far from the maddening crowds—is what makes her tick. She likes to go where Lonely Planet has yet to traverse.
