Julie Graham

Straight after completing a BA degree in Theatre and Journalism in Durban, I spent 6 years living, working and travelling abroad. When I made the decision to return to South Africa, I moved to Cape Town and decided to follow my heart and pursue my passion of becoming a full-time travel and features writer. I am hungry for experience and always up for an exhilarating adventure – especially one that enables me to be totally immersed in nature! This, coupled with my limitless curiosity about the world around me and the people in it, means that I am constantly inspired to seek out interesting and meaningful content. My bucket list is endless!
