Susie Maggie Thorne

Susie did a stint with the Wanderlust website team as she waited to graduate from her Ba (Hons) Degree in English and Contemporary Media.

A writer, artist and avid tea drinker, Susie is curious about the world. She travels to learn, describing the experience of being lost as the best way to find yourself. 

Destination is less important than the journey as she lives by the motto: "Keep an open mind and you'll learn something new every day. Take a leap of faith and revel in whatever rewards faith rewards you with."
