The Experienced Traveller
Welcome to the Experienced Traveller. Travel the world with us through our weekly feature. Read our hotel reviews. Try our recommendations. This online travel journal has developed from a personal website originally set up by Valery Collins to record her experiences travelling the world both as a tour leader and a solo traveller. After qualifying as a solicitor Valery took a year off to work on a freelance basis as a tour leader taking groups of solo travellers on holidays all over the world. Twenty-two years later she is still working as a tour leader and travelling solo when the opportunity arises.
Since she started travelling Valery has kept a diary and developed a love of writing combined with a growing interest in photography. For the past ten years she has employed these skills as a copy-writer, author and travel writer. Valery is a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers and contributes articles to other websites on a regular basis. Ultimately, her aim was to provide a resource through which her knowledge, experience and sheer joy in the delights of travel could be showcased. Enjoy.

This summer Valery was behind the camera instead of being in front of it and spent a lovely day taking photographs of members of the British Guild of Travel Writers enjoying their summer party in London. Her next photographic commission will be a wedding in October.
