ONE STORYTELLER | ENDLESS HORIZONS
Travel Boating Lifestyle is the creative outlet for Fiona Harper travel writer,
Fiona is a travel writer, travel photographer, content creator, social media manager, sailor, runner, outdoor adventurer, traveller and gadget geek (more about this obsession later). Fiona is a seasoned story teller who loves life, capturing entertaining and intriguing stories with words and images.
Travel Boating Lifestyle has been documenting stories so long we remember a time before iphones and social media existed. Ssshhh, don’t mention that to upstart Influencers armed with a snappy smartphone and a sassy Instagram feed. It makes us sound old, we know. We get it. But in this game, reputation, and a proven track record with a significant body of published work counts. It counts a lot.
Experience and journalistic ethics are at the heart of Travel Boating Lifestyle. That, and the ability to craft a yarn using tried and true story telling techniques utilising the latest technology.
Developed and launched in 2009, Travel Boating Lifestyle is the creation of Fiona Harper travel writer, who also created the popular Marinas Guide (now retired). Much-published, well-travelled and highly acclaimed, Fiona has a Google #1 page ranking for best Australian travel writers. Fiona is a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers and Global Travel Writers (a long standing syndicate of travel writers from across the globe), and is the Digital Editor at Travel Play Live – Australia’s only women’s adventure travel magazine.
Essentially, Travel Boating Lifestyle is a much-loved creative outlet where Fiona Harper produces and publish interesting stories from her travels. The stories worth sharing. The one’s she’s passionate about. Those that she loves to create, putting her heart and soul into finding the right balance of words and images. But more importantly, our cherished readers have told us these are the stories they come to Travel Boating Lifestyle for. God bless the two of you!
Remember what we said earlier about gadgets?
We’ve got some pretty extraordinary gadgets and gear for taking images above and below the water and from the air. We record soundtracks from the field wherever possible, capturing that church choir, the giggle of children, the tinkle of ukuleles. Technology allows us to travel off the beaten path, meet interesting people and listen to their stories. Fans of slow and intimate travel, we’ve the time and the patience to conduct interviews, shoot the story and publish from wherever our travels take us. Unless our GPS tracker has gone awry, it’s unlikely you’ll find the Travel Boating Lifestyle team tracking down stories in downtown New York or riding the Tube in London. We’re inspired by wild landscapes and the people and wildlife that inhabit them.
So please, slip into something comfortable (or strap on something sharp and pointy, whatever floats your boat, we’re all adults here, we’re not going to judge), mix yourself a mojito, top it with a cocktail umbrella and enjoy some fun travel adventures through our eyes.
Oh, and don’t be afraid to shout it from the rooftops if you love Travel Boating Lifestyle as much as we do. Each time you like or share an article from this site the travel fairy grants a business class upgrade to a random traveller. It could be you! Even if you miss out on the upgrade, you’ll be rewarded with good karma for sharing the love. Promise.
We’re available for hire!
