An English Country Girl in California

I was very lucky after university to find a post at Country Life magazine, sub-editing one of the world's finest publications. But after nearly eight years working there, I found myself yearning for an adventure,
to explore more of the world. Having never had a gap year, as so many of my contemporaries had, I felt the need to experience a different culture, to meet new people and see fresh horizons. A visit to friends in San Francisco gave me the solution - I fell in love with the City by the Bay and determined to return. I have chronicled my adventures, from climbing the steep streets of the city to driving the coast road, from hunting coyote to working on a Wyoming ranch, in an online journal: An English Country Girl in California.
