Microlighting in South Africa

Fresh out of Cambridge University and studying at Bloomsbury's College of Law, Louise was advised by the grey-haired, media-law partner at Clifford Chance that she should turn down their training contract and become a writer. So it was that she became tea-maker at Condé Nast. As well as working as an in-house editor for various UK travel publishers, she has written for Frommer's and Zagat in the US and for The Financial Times, The Times, The Independent and The Spectator in the UK. Her travel articles have taken her across the globe from pillow-testing at The Imperial Hotel in Tokyo to munching on deep-fried worms at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Nice, hunting down a local pudding-and-souse maker in Barbados and watching yacht chefs being put through their paces by Alain Ducasse onboard one of Monaco’s largest superyachts. Louise has also written dozens of hotel reviews for Telegraph Travel as their hotel expert for Southern France.
