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.
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.

Belinda Jackson began her travel-writing career to ease the pain of writing finance while based in Ireland. Later, she flipped a coin between Buenos Aires and Cairo, ending up in the Middle East, where she has since left a piece of her heart. She can read a street markets by its scent, is a graceless horse rider and a guerrilla shopping pro. She now defines fear as hearing an avalanche while clinging to a glacier on a Russian mountain.
