Phoebe Smith is as passionate about travel as she is about the outdoors. She likes nothing better than discovering a place on foot, gazing over giant precipices for fun and wild camping – preferably in the mountains.
With a passion for writing, being a journalist came naturally to her, and she delights in really getting under the skin of a place, immersing herself in the local culture, learning about the native wildlife and meeting those determined to help protect it, walking, diving and recording everything with words, photos and video. A former Wanderlust editor, she has won several awards for editing, writing, broadcasting and photography.
She regularly writes for a range of newspapers and magazines in the UK, Canada, Australia and the USA, is Sleep Storyteller-in-Residence for the mindful app Calm and correspondent for BBC Radio 4’s From Our Own Correspondent. She’s author of 10 books including Extreme Sleeps: Adventures of a Wild Camper, which charts her quest to explore the remote places of Britain – with just a trusty tent in tow and The Travel Writer’s Field Guide an essential guide to living a life on the road, making money from your travels.
