Travel has always played an important part in Helena’s life – from sailing in Suffolk to an overland journey from Nepal to Tibet. She studied French and Italian at Bristol University, which included five months studying and living in Turin, followed by five months working at the tourist office in Montpellier. Helena is now back in London and works in travel PR. Favourite destinations to date include Tibet, Chile, the Languedoc Roussillon region, travelling down the Mekong in Laos and anywhere where there’s the chance to try out a new language.
