Campervan Magazine approached us after reading a blog post Fi had written about experimenting with life as a digital nomad. The conversation resulted in an article and we have since been pleased to write for this publication, on further topics including a wild camping trip to Norway, walks from car parks on Dartmoor and a ‘long way home’ trip from Yorkshire to Devon via Wales.
The Secret Stories app offers a whole new way to explore with the family. The brief for our Secret Stories tours was a set of short location-based stories with a ‘Horrible Histories’ tone of voice. With Torquay’s Agatha Christie heritage, and Brixham’s fishing yarns, Torbay seemed the perfect place to start.
Visit Isles of Scilly
Our brief for Visit Isles of Scilly was to promote the bi-annual Walk Scilly walking festival through blog posting and sharing on our Two Blondes Walking platforms. After creating copy that captured both the beauty of the islands and the joy of the walking experience, we were invited back more than once.

Fi works as a brand ambassador with Visit Dartmoor through Two Blondes Walking but has also undertaken writing work for them. The Bickington First World War project was funded by the Moor Than Meets the Eye landscape partnership scheme. Our brief was to decipher research documents and write sensitive and informative copy for five banners, each of which would tell one part of the story of the war experiences of a group of Dartmoor villagers. This was a job that required some considerable research skills as well as the ability to tell a tale.
“We were hugely impressed with Fi’s pro-active and professional approach when we worked with her on a fascinating WW2 exhibition. Her insight and sensitivity were matched by her quality text and prompt delivery, we would highly recommend her as a copy writer with a certain ‘something extra’. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to collaborating with her again.”

Una Bahn Tourism Cooperative (Ireland)
When the Una Bahn Tourism Cooperative got in touch with us through Two Blondes Walking, we were thrilled to be invited to explore the Miners’ Way and Historical Trail walking route. Our brief was to encourage visitors to venture off the better known tourist routes and explore this corner of County Roscommon. With a very clear goal to appeal to those looking for alternative walking holidays, this was a project about which we could get enthusiastic.

Norway Free Camping
A trip to Nordkapp in Northern Norway gave the opportunity for online articles for Two Blondes Walking and print articles for Campervan Magazine. This was our first ‘on the job’ overseas travel assignment. The scenery made photography a dream and the inspiration of the fjords and mountains inspired a wealth of blog posts and articles. Travel writing at its most enjoyable.

Northland New Zealand
We wanted our promotion for this beautiful area of New Zealand to take an encouraging, ‘You can do this too’ approach whilst presenting a type of holiday that visitors from the UK might not have previously considered. We opted for a combination of self-depreciating humour and useful ‘listicle’ blog posts.
