Carrie Hutchinson

Carrie Hutchinson

Editor

For someone who never had a passport until the age of 20, Carrie has managed to pack in a fair amount of global wandering into the subsequent years. She’s worked in the media all her life, both in Australia and overseas. Alongside tales of adventure, she writes about food, design and celebrity folk.



Nikola Sarbinowski

Nikola Sarbinowski

Deputy Editor

After a stint living in rural Canada in her teens, Nikola discovered the best way to thaw frostbitten toes was to just keep on moving. Despite defrosting, her tootsies have tingled ever since. While Nikola loves to call Melbourne home, she's doing her best to eat her way around the globe and has happily munched on fried bees in China and slabs of smoked pork fat in Romania.



Samantha Kodila

Samantha Kodila

Editorial Assistant

Despite her bookworm tendencies, sitting still is a skill Samantha is yet to master - her feet have been itching ever since the tender age of three, when she escaped off the beaten track and into the bush during a family hike up Mt Kosciusko, NSW. A two-week exchange trip to Japan in her early teens fuelled her wanderlust and since then she's spent most her time gallivanting around the globe, devouring the local cuisine and climbing into precarious spots to capture the perfect photograph.



Catherine Best

Catherine Best

Travel Writer

Catherine is a widely published travel writer with an irrational fear of outer space. The martians can have it to themselves, but anywhere else is free game. She blames a childhood caravan adventure around Australia for tickling her feet, and they have been itching ever since. For years Catherine tried to suppress her travelling obsession working as a newshound. Truth is, she is more comfortable in hiking boots and scuba gear than pinstripes and pumps. Just don’t ask her to wear a space suit.

Pat Kinsella

Pat Kinsella

Travel Writer

A widely published travel and adventure writer and photographer, Pat has edited a number of magazines in Australia since mysteriously washing up on these shores back in 1999. Okay, it wasn't that mysterious – he'd simply done a runner from the mean streets and frosty climes of the UK to explore the world and make his fortune. He's still running and exploring, but the fortune-making part is on hold for the moment.



Roberto Serrini

Roberto Serrini

Travel Writer & Photographer

If you’ve ever seen the aerial footage in Puff Daddy’s ‘I Want the Love’ video or walked into a Nike store to see a three-metre-tall LeBron James slam-dunking, you’ve witnessed Roberto’s amazing commercial work. Between such high-profile jobs, though, the LA-based film director and photographer likes to scratch his travel itch by travelling the world seeking out new adventures to share with get lost readers.
