Rebecca Brown was born and raised in Hampstead, London, and now rents the best flat in the world on Notting Hill. However, she only gets to spend about four months of the year there, while the rest of the time she is busy working as a translator on conferences across the globe, writing endless posts on working out in hotel rooms, and trying to find the best suitcase ever invented. She also plays a very decent game of tennis. Her favourite places in the world include the north-west corner of St. Mark's Square in Venice, San Francisco, and any beach in Bora Bora where the turtles hatch. Her dream destinations include the very south of Norway, any town in Italy, and the hiking trails of Spain.
