Introducing Keri Hedrick; freelance writer and mother of three based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
In a prior life I worked as a Chartered Accountant in Melbourne, Australia then London, UK but I have put my full-time career on hold – for now – to focus on my young children, writing, share trading, joining countless committees and in my remaining time learning more about the world through the friends I meet and of course, my travels.
From street stalls in Asia to beer cafes in Belgium I regularly travelled for over 10 years prior to having my first child in 2010. I assumed from this point onward my travel days would be numbered but as my daughter’s passport is testament to, she had already visited five continents and clocked up an estimated 100,000 air miles with us by the tender age of three.
With three children now in tow, my travel experiences have certainly changed but are still rewarding. This site draws on my own travel experiences and the advice I have gathered from fellow travelling parents, as well as what I have learnt about different cultures and how the expatriate life affects parenting. I might not have all the answers but I’m having fun finding them!
As well as managing the Globetrotters blog and associated social media accounts, I am available to do freelance work for online and print publications as well as guest posts with like-minded bloggers. I am happy to work on sponsored posts and product promotion within the family travel sector. Please contact me at [email protected] for further information and see the “work with us” page.
