Hello there, I’m Katie – a journalist, travel writer and editor.

I’ve worked for a few different publications *cue elevator music* such as The Independent, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Psychologies, Huffington Post and Metro, to companies such as Jamie Oliver, M&S, Tesco and Mars Wrigley. I write, I edit, I do comms, content design and UX writing (which is pretty cool). 

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy reading this blog. Please feel free to leave me a comment, stalk me on social media or send me a message directly on katiemonk06@gmail.com. I’ll be adding more stories to this blog as I go, so stay tuned.

Aaaaaaand, if you’d like to book me for a coaching session where we can discuss your creative projects, thrash out travel plans, talk remote work and business, please book here. At the moment, I’m only offering individual coaching because I’d really like to help people (women especially) work for themselves, do stuff they love and feel fulfilled. The sessions are held via Zoom or Google Meet and cost €130, or you can book three for €350. You’ll get to ask me anything that’s on your mind, and share your story in a 1000% confidential, private manner. Nothing you say or share with me will ever go beyond my ears, for any reason.

Companies, please get in touch via email for my consulting rates.

Thanks for stopping by, and hopefully see you around!



Reviews and press trips 

I either travel independently or I take sponsored press/FAM trips to destinations. All opinions are my own, and my travel reviews are 100% objective, so if I include it on my blog or anywhere else, it’s because I think it’s good, and you will enjoy it too. Otherwise, it stays out.

In terms of collaborations and commissions, I can offer the following services either on my blog or elsewhere:

  • Destination and product reviews
  • Hotel reviews
  • Press trips
  • Sponsored posts
  • Paid campaigns
  • Product reviews
  • Consulting
  • Copywriting
  • Editing and proof-reading
  • Banner ads and links
  • Advertising from relevant companies
  • Social media promotion, management and takeovers
  • Branding
  • Brand ambassadorship
  • Website design
