Samantha Wilson is a widely published writer and author with an insatiable wanderlust and passion for all things countryside, wildlife, nature and history. She writes for guidebook, magazine and online media publishers, and has authored several travel books including Ultimate Record-Breaking Destinations: The World’s Largest, Highest and Most Extreme Places, and Ultimate Wildlife Destinations for New Holland Publishers. She is a long-standing member of the British Guild of Travel Writers. Her journeys have taken her from the Northern Lights of the Arctic to the wild lands of Patagonia to the remote islands of Palau. She has inter-railed through Europe, canoed the Swedish lakes, travelled the length and breadth of South and Central America, and camel-trekked the North African deserts. Today she lives in rural England from where she writes with views of rolling green hills. She travels to Israel and Spain regularly, and is currently learning the art of travelling with a toddler.
