Hi, my name is Clara and some days I think I will never sate my wanderlust.
I caught the travel bug in 2011 on an exchange semester abroad in Taiwan. That was the year I turned 21, lived abroad and learnt to backpack. When I came home I hung a map of the world in my room and promised myself that one day I would see it all.
From 2013 to 2015 I spent two years as the editor of the Republic of Singapore Navy magazine. I sailed on deployments to places I would never otherwise have visited, like the Gulf of Aden for counter-piracy operations and the Java Sea to search for downed Air Asia flight QZ8501. It was a great adventure, and I spent many happy days at sea.
Now I’m a Singapore-based freelance writer and part-time traveller always looking to my next trip abroad. If you’d like to collaborate, visit my portfolio or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s have a chat!
