Kate Hammaren is a luxury and adventure travel writer and editor from the UK, with a BA (Hons) degree in Leisure Marketing and over 15 years' experience in the industry.
Kate was formerly Assistant Editor for leading equestrian magazine Horse&Rider UK, then worked in Marketing, but decided to go down the freelance route in 2012 so she could embrace her true passion: travel.
She's been based in the Philippines since 2014, but has visited 31 countries, including some Caribbean islands, the Maldives, West Africa, Finland, France, Greece, Spain, Turkey, Malaysia, Borneo, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Cook Islands – to name but a few.
Kate was also blown away by her travels to the U.S. and has made trips to experience ranch life, spending time cowgirlin' in Montana and Wyoming. She has also visited the Californian wineries of Sonoma and Napa, and spent time in Kentucky, learning about the area, and the Kentucky equestrian and horse racing scene.
When she’s not working, travelling or spending time on her campervan, Kate loves to wind down by walking, exploring, swimming, snorkeling, reading, cycling, cooking, horse riding and scuba diving, and enjoying the sunset with a nice glass of red.
