A long-overdue vacation transformed Belinda Woodhouse’s life.
She decided to leave the Royal Australian Navy and let her wanderlust take her roaming the planet in free, sandal-wearing bliss.
Today, she has been published over 70 times in magazines, online platforms and blogs.
Bel has also written three travel books with two more in the pipeline. (See Episode Resources below.)
Nothing is safe from her curiosity. Bel loves adventure, exploration and the wild places, where you’ll find her climbing all over ruins, tubing down jungle rivers, and exploring the depths of the oceans, all while laughing and loving every minute of it. She wouldn’t change a thing.
Bel currently lives on the gorgeous Caribbean island of Cozumel in Mexico with her best travel buddy, her Halloween born black cat Fantasma.
“Becoming a travel writer is the best change I ever made,” Bel told us.
She loves her life (and you can love yours, too)!
