Sasha’s first ‘proper’ travel experience was at the tempestuous age of seventeen, when it was cool to be the fearless traveller. Finding herself propped up in a hammock in the jungle in Brazil with gleaming alligator eyes a few metres away, waist-high in piranha-infested waters, and in other equally ludicrous situations, was a far cry from home in leafy Surrey. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and those early experiences obviously infected Sasha with ‘The Bug’. Not schistosomiasis or another water-borne disease, but the travel variety, as she went on to roam extensively, particularly across Europe, Central America and South Africa.
In the meantime, Sasha has built up a repertoire of editorial experience. As well as being the dedicated Travel Writer for WAYN.com, she has also acted as Travel Editor and Managing Editor of an international lifestyle magazine, been the Web Editor for a high-profile charity, a journalist in Honduras and a Lonely Planet contributor. These accolades have naturally added to her stockpile of funky travel experiences – a Honduran prison visit, an accidental Costa Rican guest house that doubled as a brothel and a fashion photoshoot in Poland with London’s editorial ‘elite’ – to name but a few.
