Tamara Hinson

Tamara Hinson is a freelance travel writer who covers all types of travel, especially anything adventure sports-related.

She's a former snowboard instructor and spent several ski seasons working in the French Alps. She's also especially interested in more off-the-beaten-path destinations, and has visited North Korea (even though she had to lie and say she was a beauty therapist on her visa application).

She contributes regularly to a wide range of publications, ranging from the Telegraph, Independent and Metro to websites such as Rough Guides, in-flight magazines and publications such as Conde Nast Traveller.
