Read and enjoy her travel story Terror in the Desert - Egypt 1991 here.
I was born and brought up in Scotland, but left in my early twenties. I've worked and travelled in Greece, Turkey, Spain, Poland, Israel, Egypt, most of Asia, Australia and Africa. I returned to Israel in 1998 where I took up a post as Senior Teacher at the British Council in Tel Aviv - with occasional stints at the British Council in Egypt and Tanzania. I love travel - the more adventurous the better, but since the birth of my daughter in 2008, I have had to settle down and become an armchair traveller instead! I currently live in rural Northumberland with my husband, daughter and two rescue cats.
