Perth Travel Writer

Hi, I'm Jennifer Morton

I specialise in travel and lifestyle writing from the sunny capital of Western Australia. You’ll find my lifestyle articles on SBS, Sydney Morning Herald, News, Good Health and WHIMN.

But travel is where my heart beats.

Travelling offers incredible moments to be cherished and remembered forever. A well-written travel article can transport the reader to the destination. A top 10 list provides information and inspiration in useful chunks. And that’s where the dreaming begins.

I’ve been around the world and back again. It’s never enough. I was born to explore.

Travel Mishaps

Not every trip is a dream. I’ve definitely had some awful experiences – mostly at my own doing (yes, there was booze involved). 

Flying long distance (any distance) hung-over, accommodation crawling with cockroaches, and food poisoning in a foreign country are not great experiences. But they make good stories.
