About Travel Writer Linda Jackson

Intriguing times

Prior to stepping on the travel writers' ladder, I enjoyed a colourful, intriguing and sometimes exciting life overseas - first as a member of the International Staff at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, then as wife of a British diplomat. I started my freelance travel-writing career, after a stint of organising golf instruction days, travel and golf events mainly for women for a UK national golf magazine, when I returned to live in the UK after several years working in Brussels and Dubai, and living in Barbados, Casablanca and Paris. 

Travel Writing

My travel writing covers a wide range of topics and has been published in national and international lifestyle magazines; in-flight, on-line and golf publications as well as in the national press and the Wall Street Journal. Many of my images have been used alongside features I write and also been published alongside other journalists' work, including in The Times, The Guardian, and Country Homes & Interiors. 

Wedding venues & honeymoon destinations travel writer

For ten years I was the sole contributor for the monthly travel section in a 250-page regional lifestyle magazine; was responsible for the honeymoon destinations section in a bridal magazine for seven years, and acted short-term as the Travel Editor for a southeastern England lifestyle publication.

Website copywriter (travel-related & luxury hotels) & travel blogger

Travel writing has changed beyond recognition over recent years due to the popularity of online publishing. Consequently, although I continue to write for print publications, I am increasingly writing articles and newsletters for travel-related websites and am also now 'classified' as a travel blogger. I am Managing Editor and administrator of a specialist Caribbean website - www.activecaribbean.com - so am well qualified to assist with website copywriting, website proof reading, and website editing if required, as well as writing travel-related blogs.

General travel destinations image library

I am a keen photographer so have a large and varied 'destinations and topics' image library. I am a full member of the British Guild of Travel Writers and, being a golfer, a member of the Golf Travel Writers Association. I am also Associate Editor of Great Golf Magazine, a luxury golf and lifestyle consumer magazine.

Food & travel writer based in the UK

With an appetite for travel and an interest in worldwide cuisine, I've turned out a bit of a foodie... having nibbled pig’s ears in Portugal and slippery eels in the Po Delta; dined in trendy restaurants in Montreal and through multi-course tasting menus in Asturias; munched through healthy-eating menus in Mauritius; got bubbly on Cava in Spain, delved into sizzling cook pots in the Caribbean, and endured deliciously messy fingers eating Arbroath smokies in Scotland.

Luxury spa resorts & special interests travel writer

I’ve pranced around animal-like on grass in Portugal, been clad in lake mud in Italy, lay naked in a bath of Austrian aromatic mountain hay, and got stoned in many a spa around the world.

I've beaten around numerous bushes with golf club in hand, tackled flyfishing in Ireland, tried a bit of Scilly walking, and rounded up cattle in Arizona.

Quebec horseriding Image copyright Linda Jackson www.linda-jackson.co.ukI've ridden through vineyards in Rioja, galloped along Durban's seashore, been memorably spooked out of my mind at Halloween in Spain, snorkelled above the 'she-devil' in Grenada, and skidood wildly around Quebec’s white wilderness... all in the name of travel writing.

Swimming with dolphins in Florida was great... snorkelling with manta ray in the Maldives was even greater. Hot air ballooning in Arizona was one of my highs, and as for that night under the stars in a Bedouin camp deep in the Oman desert... ... ...
