I set myself a challenge in 2021 to swim once a week every week throughout the whole year ahead.

Join me on a Scandinavian swimming challenge.

In the press
I’m delighted to have not one but two pieces in Conde Nast Traveller’s May edition, which has a family travel section. It’s always been my gold standard in terms of travel writing - it delivers a serious dose of luxury and travel insight and it’s an honour to be published in it.
About this blog
I’m Laura, I’m a mum of two, an English-born Copenhagen resident and something of an enthusiast. I’ll share some of the things that inspire my writing as we go along, and I’ll write a little about writing, give you a taste of my work in progress and share something of my publishing journey. It’s going to be fun.
