Travel C.V. jackiefreshfield

About me: Have passport, will travel. I work from home, so 'holiday' means 'not being at home'. I love to be out and about with my camera whether in UK or abroad. A wildlife junkie thanks to living in Africa in formative years and an addiction to David Attenborough programmes, I'm at my happiest when watching wildlife in their home environments or sitting by the sea, but always camera in hand.
